Limited Submission Announcement

The National Center for Research Resources solicits applications for its Extramural Research Facilities Improvement Program (C06). The purpose of this program is to expand, remodel, renovate, or alter biomedical or behavioral research facilities in order to enhance the conduct of Public Health Service-funded research. The acquisition and installation of fixed equipment such as casework, fume hoods, large autoclaves, upgrading HVAC systems for the research areas, cage washers, animal ventilated racks, static racks, downdraft tables, sterilizing equipment, and other large equipment that are connected to building structure and services, or biological safety cabinets are allowed.
Because MU is limited to one additional application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than noon on Monday, April 20, 2009. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1) an overview of the proposed work including the extent to which planning documents or drawings already exist, 2) an estimate of the total cost of the project, and 3) a tentative list of the investigators to be impacted by the project. The other two MU applications will target the May 6 and July 17 deadlines. To avoid the possibility that the same review panel receives more than one MU proposal, applications for the June 17 deadline will be preferenced.


$10M to $20M for June deadline; $5M to $10M for July deadline

MU Deadline:

12:00 noon, Monday, April 20, 2009
