Exploratory/ Developmental Research Grant Program– National Library of Medicine

Award Amount: Varies by project; does not exceed $275,000
The NIH Exploratory/Developmental Grant supports exploratory and developmental research projects by providing support for the early and conceptual stages of these projects. These studies may involve considerable risk but may lead to a breakthrough in a particular area, or to the development of novel techniques, agents, methodologies, models, or applications that could have a major impact on a field of biomedical, behavioral, or clinical research.
These checklists provide transparency, workflows, and identify responsible parties involved in the three major activities of grants management at the Smathers Libraries: determining feasibility, preparing and submitting proposals, and managing award setup and post award processes.
Each month, a Funding Alert is published to highlight upcoming funding opportunities and deadlines related to the interests of personnel at the George A. Smathers Libraries. The document features deadlines, summaries of sponsor interest and eligibility requirements, as well as ranges of funding amounts, a link to the guidelines, and a link to previously awarded grants if this is available.
The Grants Activities Update is a monthly report produced by the Smathers Libraries, Grants Management Program, to inform Libraries employees about activities related to grantseeking. Proposals are categorized by whether they have been recently submitted, recently awarded, recently declined, pending, or active. The purpose of the report is to provide sufficient information about the status of all proposals for the purpose of transparency and tracking. Information includes title of the project, amount requested, amount contributed as cost share, proposal abstract, project team members, start dates and end dates, the related sponsors name and program, and a link to the full proposal hosted in the UF Institutional Repository, an open access repository.
