On March 25, NIAID replaced the original Notice of Special Interest (NOSI) inviting competitive revision supplement applications for COVID-19 research with the NIAID Emergency NOSI
. This directs applicants to NIH's Emergency FOA
. Grantees are encouraged to develop applications responding to this new NOSI. NIAID believes this will reduce the time to award for meritorious applications.
NIAID also issued a NOSI
that for those seeking full research project grant proposals to conduct research on SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-2019 through an array of parent FOAs.
The full explanation, a table of parent investigator-initiated FOA activity codes and the scientific research areas are highlighted in Updates on NIAID Funding for SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-2019 Research
released on April 1. Please review this new guidance before submitting COVID-19 related competitive revisions or supplement applications to NIAID.
