PROGRAM: Project grants facilitate collaborative research efforts between US and foreign scientists that will expand and enhance the NIH-supported research program of the US principal investigator, while at the same time benefiting the scientific interests of the collaborating foreign scientist. These small grants will provide funds for up to three years to purchase supplies, materials, and small equipment items necessary to conduct the collaborative research in the foreign scientist's laboratory. Travel support for both the US principal investigator and the foreign collaborator also is provided. Applications will be reviewed on the basis of scientific and technical merit of the research proposal. Collaborative potential, significance of the proposed research, and the competence of the foreign collaborator are also prime factors. Additional information is available upon request.
QUALIFICATIONS: The grant applicant is the US institution where the US principal investigator is employed. The foreign collaborator must hold a position at a public or nonprofit private institution in Bulgaria, the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic, Hungary, Poland, the states of the former USSR, Romania, or Yugoslavia, or any country in Latin America or the Caribbean.
