This FOA encourages grant applications for national Biomedical Technology Development and Dissemination (BTDD) Centers. The BTDD program supports the development of technologies once their feasibility has been established and the dissemination of these technologies to the wider biomedical research community. The program encourages investigators to propose projects that address any of the biomedical research areas within the mission of NIGMS. The Centers are required to make their technologies available to the research community in a sustainable manner, to provide user training, and to disseminate the Center’s technologies and results. Centers should be at the leading edge of their field with respect to both technology development and engagement of the relevant research community. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact NIGMS staff at least 10 weeks prior to the application due date to ascertain whether the proposed project is appropriate for an NIGMS BTDD Center.
