NIH: Core Centers for Musculoskeletal Biology and Medicine (P30)

Program Summary

The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS) invites applications for Research Core Centers (P30s) in musculoskeletal biology and medicine. The Core Centers for Musculoskeletal Biology and Medicine (CCMBM) will provide shared facilities and services to groups of established, currently funded investigators addressing scientific problems in musculoskeletal biology and medicine, in order to improve efficiency, accelerate the pace of research, and ensure greater productivity.   


Only one application per institution (normally identified by having a unique DUNS number or NIH IPF number) is allowed.

Award Information

The NIAMS intends to fund up to an estimated 3-4 awards, corresponding to a total of $1.6M Direct Costs ($2.4M Total Costs) in FY 2014. The number of awards is contingent upon NIH appropriations, and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Future year amounts will depend on annual appropriations.

Direct costs of up to $400,000 per year may be requested. This covers an Administrative Core, two or more Research Cores, and an Enrichment Program. The direct costs for the Enrichment Program must range from a minimum of $30,000 up to $100,000.

The maximum project period is five years.
