HomeLarge-Scale Collaborative Project Awards (Glue Grant) Program (program ended 6/18/2010)

Note: This is an archived page that is not updated.

Purpose: The purpose of this initiative is to make resources available for currently funded scientists to form research teams to tackle complex problems that are of central importance to biomedical science and to the mission of NIGMS, but that are beyond the means of any one research group.

Note: In 2011, NIGMS decided not to reannounce the glue grant program. This action was taken after conducting both a process evaluation [PDF, 801 KB] and an outcomes assessment, and consideration by the National Advisory General Medical Sciences Council. These assessments were also discussed in several NIGMS Feedback Loop posts. NIGMS plans future consideration of alternate mechanisms for support of collaborative and integrative science.
