We sponsor a variety of grants and funding opportunities. We also participate in funding opportunities sponsored by other parts of NIH.
We prioritize resources and projects that promote innovation in translational science and improve human health. We provide individual consideration to each grant application.
We carry out fair, objective and appropriate peer review of NCATS grant applications and contract proposals.
Review staff also cooperate on the development of notices of funding opportunities and provide advice to colleagues in support of NCATS programs.
