The NIH Director’s High Risk-High Reward (HRHR) program, supported through the NIH Common Fund, was created to test new ways of stimulating the biomedical workforce by providing support for highly creative researchers and ideas that have the potential to fundamentally change the way we think about and conduct biomedical research. The NIH Director’s Transformative Research
Award, Pioneer Award, New Innovator Award, and the Early Independence
Award are the four current funding opportunities under the HRHR program.
The NIH announces an informational webinar that will provide information and answers questions about NEW funding opportunity announcements (FOAs) for the HRHR program, specifically for the Transformative Research Award, which is open until January 12, 2012. The webinar will be held on November 8, 1:00-2:45 EST.
