NSF Grant Proposal Guidelines Chapter 1. B:
Unless otherwise stated in the program guidelines, research with disease-related goals, including work on the etiology, diagnosis or treatment of physical or mental disease, abnormality, or malfunction in human beings or animals, is normally not supported. Animal models of such conditions or the development or testing of drugs or other procedures for their treatment also are not eligible for support.
Exceptions:
However, research in bioengineering, with diagnosis- or treatment-related goals, that applies engineering principles to problems in biology and medicine while advancing engineering knowledge is eligible for support. Bioengineering research to aid persons with disabilities also is eligible."

Proposal central application instructions

 


IMPORTANT:
How to delegate the authority to submit your proposal to the RPM

The PI should scroll to the bottom of the page, enter the RPM's* email address, then give the RPM"administrative" permission. The "administrative" permission allows the RPM* to view, edit and submit the application. If the RPM is not given "administrative" permission, the RPM* will not be able to access the submit button.
*For PIs in other schools: substitute your OSR contract officer's email address in place of the RPM

Special Note: Selecting the Institution's Name
School of Medicine PIs: Med. should select item #6 (following the “MDA clinic” listing) when they search for Stanford University. This one has the RMG Porter Drive address.
PIs in other schools: Select "the Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University" which will display the OSR address.

Selecting a signing official:
SoM PIs:
the "Stanford University" profile will include the list of RPMs.
PIs in other schools: If "the Board of Trustees of the Leland Stanford Junior University" is selected, this profile will show the OSR signing officials.
