Spotlight on the R25

By Bouvier Grant Group

We stay current on NIH happenings and would be delighted to keep you informed.

The NIH R25 is one of several NIH Resource grants (in this case, the R stands for Resource not Research) that are meant to be used to provide research-related projects or improve infrastructure.

The R25 is meant to increase interest, understanding, and training in biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research. Different ICs use the R25 in a wide variety of ways, from providing hands-on research experiences to holding short courses for skills development. The participants can range from high school students and teachers, to undergraduates, graduate students, postdocs, residents, or early career scientists, depending on the focus of the NOFO.

Because of the breadth of possible activities supported by the various R25s, award budget limits may vary between NOFOs. Also, certain NOFOs for R25s require a letter of intent (LOI) 30 days before the application is due. Additionally, R25 submission deadlines don’t fall on the NIH standard due dates schedule, so be sure to check the NOFO.

Dr. Meg Bouvier

Margaret Bouvier received her PhD in 1995 in Biomedical Sciences from the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. After an NINDS post-doctoral fellowship, she worked as a staff writer for long-standing NIH Director Dr. Francis Collins in the Office of Press, Policy, and Communications for the Human Genome Project and NHGRI. Since 2007, Meg has specialized in editing and advising on NIH submissions, and began offering virtual courses in 2015. She's recently worked with more than 40% of the nation's highest-performing hospitals*, four of the top 10 cancer hospitals, three of the top five medical schools for research, and 14 NCI-designated cancer centers. Her experience at NIH as both a bench scientist and staff writer greatly informs her approach to NIH grantwriting. She has helped clients land over half a billion in federal funding. Bouvier Grant Group is a woman-owned small business.
