 NIH Supplemental Programs A supplement is a process by which funds are added to an existing grant or cooperative agreement. Typically, an administrative supplement is a request to provide additional funds to a grant or cooperative agreement to pay for necessary items or activities that fall within the scope of that award, but were unanticipated at the time that the new or competing continuation application was submitted. An administrative supplement request is subject to an internal review and does not require peer review, although review by the appropriate funding council may take place.

Supplemental funds can also be requested for emergency or other unforeseen situations which result in unanticipated costs, such as natural or man made disasters that damage the PI’s lab or other research resources, failure of essential equipment, or unexpected or increased costs of recruiting subjects or performing laboratory analyses. Grantees may also request funds to update equipment or methodologies that have become out of date.

During this information-packed Webinar, your expert presenter will cover the currently open opportunities for supplemental awards, as well as the specifics of the application process. Also presented will be an explanation of how research supplements can add personnel to your team, what the eligibility requirements are to apply for such support, and how to position you request for the best chances of funding.

5 Key Take-Aways:

  • How a grant revision can also provide supplemental funds.
  • Approaching your program officer with your request.
  • Supplement programs for special populations.
  • Administrative supplements to support new, additional work for relevant research projects.
  • Using supplements to your home institution’s core or center to supplement your lab’s research.

 Who Should Attend:

  • Currently funded PIs, post-docs, and beginning investigators seeking their first award.

Dr. Ludlow began his academic faculty career at the University of Rochester (NY) in 1991, with appointments in the department of biochemistry at the medical school and the university’s cancer research center. During this time he maintained an independently funded research laboratory training graduate students and post doctoral fellows in the area of tumor suppressor gene expression, protein structure, and function. Funding for his laboratory came from a variety of sources, including the NIH, the American Cancer Society, and private foundations. Dr. Ludlow began working in the commercial biotechnology sector in 2000, developing and managing research and pre-clinical programs for cell therapy and tissue engineered products, where he has continued to compete in, and advise on, multiple NIH award programs.
