NIH Common Fund.gifThe NIH Common Fund supports “exceptionally innovative programs that are inherently high-risk, but have the potential for high-payoff.” NIH is seeking new ideas for the Common Fund that “fundamentally change how we think about, support, or do research in a specific field, or … create an entirely new field.”

Feedback is sought through September 14, 2011, and will help shape new programs for 2013.
