Eligibility


Program
The long-term goal of the Cooperative Centers on Human Immunology (CCHI) program is the translation of research into clinical applications in humans in the area of infectious disease. The immediate objectives are to support research on the molecular mechanisms by which the human immune system is activated and regulated in response to infection, vaccination against infectious disease, or administration of a vaccine adjuvant(s) that targets an innate immune receptor(s).  We also have a special interest in questions related to how an immune response may develop and change from childhood through adolescence to adulthood. 

Stanford’s projects related to the U19 grant are summarized on this webpage:

Institutional representative: not applicable. You do not have to send your internal proposals to your RPM in RMG for his/her approval. You can send it directly to Robert.

1. Cover page with:
The Stanford Institute for Immunity, Transplantation and Infection (ITI)
NIH Cooperative Centers for Translational Research in Human Immunology (CCHI)* Pilot Project Grants
Pilot Project Title
Pilot Project Leader’s Name & Contact Info
Pilot Project Abstract

2. Detailed budget & justification (PHS 398 pgs 4-5); include both direct and indirect costs; include proposed % effort/months effort for the Project Leader and any other key personnel. $40,000 direct cost limit plus indirect costs rate of 60.5% for 1 year.  No equipment purchases are allowed with these funds. Performance period is April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019.

NOTE-IDC Rate Clarification: When preparing your budget please use an IDC rate of 60.5%. Even though the current IDC rate is 57%, you must use 60.5% IDC rate because that was the rate when the CCHI grant was awarded and it remains this rate throughout the 5-year period (4/1/2014-3/31/2019) of the award. 

3. PHS 398 form NIH Biosketch for proposed Project Leader and any other key personnel;
in the “Research Support” section, include % effort/months effort for active funding.
NIH Biosketch Forms webpage:
https://grants.nih.gov/grants/forms/biosketch.htm

4. Description of proposed work (strict 4-page limit) to include:
(Format: single-spaced, Arial 11 fonts, with one inch margins throughout . References are not counted in the page limit for the experimental plan section. Figures are included in the page limit for the experimental plan.)

5. Human Subjects section (follow PHS 398 instructions).

6. Vertebrate animals section (follow PHS 398 instructions).
