- The NCRR Shared Instrumentation Grant (SIG) program solicits applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade commercially available instruments that cost at least $100,000. The maximum award is $500,000. Types of instruments supported include confocal and electron microscopes, biomedical imagers, mass spectrometers, DNA sequencers, biosensors, cell sorters and NMR spectrometers, among others.
- Awards are for one year and for direct costs only. Cost sharing is not required. Since the cost of the various instruments will vary, it is anticipated that the size of the award also will vary.
- The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend on the funds available for the SIG Program.
- This Program Announcement will use the NIH S10 mechanism.
- Eligible institutions include domestic non-profit organizations, public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges and hospitals. To be eligible to apply, three or more NIH funded investigators (Principal Investigators of active P01, R01, U01, R35 or R37 research grants) who will be users of the requested instruments must be identified.
- Eligible principal investigators include any technically qualified research scientists.
