“Opening the CC doors”: Opportunities for collaborative research at the NIH Clinical Center (U01)

Tuesday, September 23, 2014 — Concurrent Symposia Session III

2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Classrooms 1 and 2


  • John Gallin, CC
  • Constantine Stratakis, NICHD


Combining forces with extramural scientists to conduct research through the funding program “Opportunities for Collaborative Research at the NIH Clinical Center (U01)” provides a new and exciting pathway for future research discoveries. This program encourages partnerships between extramural and intramural researchers to enhance the translation of basic biological discoveries into clinical applications while utilizing Clinical Center resources. The first cycle resulted in 10 awards representing different scientific disciplines ranging from rare diseases to new innovations and vaccine development. In this symposium, intramural awardees and program experts will highlight this unique research opportunity and provide guidance for intramural investigators to consider partnering with extramural researchers and apply for funding in an upcoming cycle. The session will conclude with a panel discussion moderated by Drs. Frederick Ognibene, CC and Gene Hayunga, NICHD and will include program officer(s), budget rep(s), administrator(s), and evaluation team rep(s) to talk about the grant award process.
