NIBIB Trailblazer Award for New and Early Stage Investigators (R21 Clinical Trial Optional)(PAR-18-207)
National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering
Eligibility: assist. prof. with PI eligibility. New and Early Stage Investigators (ESI >>) to pursue research programs of high interest to the NIBIB that integrate engineering and the physical sciences with the life and behavioral sciences. This FOA invites applications from researchers who are at the early stage of their independent careers or those who have not had substantial prior NIH funding. A Trailblazer project may be exploratory, developmental, proof of concept, or high risk-high impact, and may be technology design-directed, discovery-driven, or hypothesis-driven. Trailblazer approaches are expected to differ substantially from current thinking or practice, therefore, extensive preliminary data demonstrating feasibility is an indication that the project is beyond the scope of this FOA. (Use the other miscellaneous bioengineering FOAs below.)
Only one NIBIB Trailblazer R21 application may be submitted by a PD/PI per due date. An awardee may not hold concurrent Trailblazer awards.

Institutional representatives (RPMs/RMG and OSR) and Internal Proposal Deadline Policy
School of Medicine PIs:

PIs: you typically do not have to submit your pre-applications, pre-proposals, abstracts through your RPM.
Exception: CE faculty must submit and obtain approval for a CE faculty PI waiver request >> prior to submitting a pre-proposal, pre-application, LOI- if the sponsor uses those to pre-screen applicants and subsequently invite them to submit full applications.
SoM internal proposal deadline policy, best practices**, FAQs: webpage>>
PIs: You are encouraged to alert your RPM 3-4 weeks prior to any sponsor’s deadline so that your budget can be completed no later than 10 days prior to the sponsor’s deadline. Per the above policy, the institutional representative deadline is the complete by date** and not the “let’s get started date”. [**5 working days prior to the sponsor’s deadline your fully approved and completed PDRF form and application materials must be provided to your RPM/RMG or OSR.]
