NIGMS National and Regional Resources (R24) Program

NIGMS National and Regional Resources (NRRs, PAR-22-065) provide the biomedical research community with access to NIGMS mission-related​, state-of-the-art instrumentation, software, biological specimens and reagents, and bioanalytical and biophysical services, among other tools. These resources should serve substantial regional (multistate) or national user bases. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NIGMS staff at least 10 weeks prior to the application due date to discuss the suitability of their proposed resource for the NRR. Applicants requesting an annual budget equal to or greater than​ $500,000 for any year of the award (excluding consortium facilities and administrative costs) must obtain permission to do so by submitting a letter of intent to the NIGMS NRR mailbox at least 6 weeks prior to application submission.​
