The National Library of Medicine, in conjunction with NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) named above, announces an Administrative Supplement opportunity available to eligible NIH awardees with active R01 grants and, in some cases, with active P01, P30, P50 and U01 grants (see details below).
These administrative supplements provide funds to supported research and center grants in order to enhance the storage, organization, management and use of electronic research data through the involvement of informationists, also known as in-context information specialists.
The purposes of this administrative supplement program are (1) to enhance collaborative, multi-disciplinary basic and clinical research by integrating an information specialist into the research team in order to improve the capture, storage, organization, management, integration, presentation and dissemination of biomedical research data and (2) to assess and document the value and impact of the informationist’s participation.
Total direct costs requested for the supplement may not exceed $25,000 per year. The total cost requested must not exceed $50,000 over a two-year period and must reflect actual needs of the proposed project.
