Grants and Funding: Extramural Programs (EP)

Exploratory/Developmental Awards

The list below consists of new and continuing grant awards made by NLM, sorted by fiscal year. Multi-year projects will appear each year in which funds are awarded. New investigators are defined as those who have not previously received a significant NIH independent research grant; Early Stage investigators are those new investigators who are in the first 10 years of their research career.
