The National Center for Research Resources (NCRR) solicits applications for the Developing and Improving Institutional Animal Resources (G20) program that propose to renovate, repair, or improve individual animal resources. The major objective of this program is to upgrade animal facilities to support the conduct of biomedical and/or behavioral research. Support is limited to alterations and renovations (A&R) to improve laboratory animal facilities, and the purchase of major equipment items for animal resources, diagnostic laboratories, transgenic animal resources, or similar associated activities.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, October 1, 2010. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1) a listing of the NIH-funded investigators to be impacted by the project, 2) the need for the project, 3) a description of the proposed project, 4) the anticipated budget, and 5) names of three MU personnel who could serve as internal reviewers for letters of intent under this program.


Up to $500,000 in direct costs. The budget may include a request for animal care equipment, for alteration and renovation funds, or both. The total project period may not exceed five years.
