The Research Project Grant (R01) is an award to support a discrete, specified, circumscribed project to be performed by named Project Directors/Principal Investigators (PDs/PIs) in areas representing the investigators' specific interests and competencies, based on the mission of the NIH. The PDs/PIs are to define the scientific focus or objective of the research based on particular areas of interest and competence. Although the PDs/PIs write the grant application and are responsible for conducting and supervising the research, the actual applicant is the research institution/organization. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award will also vary. Deadlines listed are for new proposals. The standard deadlines are February 5, June 5, and October 5. AIDS and AIDS-related grant application receipt dates are May 7, September 7, and January 7.
