NIH R15 Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA) for Undergraduate-Focused Institutions

February 8, 2023 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm

Overview of Webinar:

The purpose of AREA is to support small scale research grants at institutions that do not receive substantial funding from the NIH, with an emphasis on providing biomedical research experiences primarily for undergraduate students and enhancing the research environment at applicant institutions. Eligible institutions must award baccalaureate science degrees and have received no more than $6 million dollars per year of NIH support (in both direct and indirect costs) in 4 of the last 7 fiscal years. The AREA program will enable qualified scientists to receive support for small-scale research projects. Principal investigators supported under the AREA program will benefit from the opportunity to conduct independent research; the grantee institution will benefit from a research environment strengthened through AREA grants; and the students at recipient institutions will benefit from exposure to and participation in scientific research in the biomedical sciences so that they consider careers in biomedical research. The AREA program emphasizes the engagement and inclusion of undergraduates in research.

Targeted Audience: CUNY Biomedical Sciences faculty
Presenters: John Tsapogas, Director, RFCUNY-APPS and Tatiana Emmanouil, Professor of Psychology, Baruch College
