Pilot Project Letter of Intent (LOI)

Deadline: December 31st, 2023 11:59 PM EST

To better serve those applying for pilot project funding, Letters of Intent (LOI) will be required from interested Principal Investigators. The proposed projects should address the following health care issues:

  • Addiction
  • Alzheimer’s Disease
  • Emerging Epidemics (e.g., SARS-CoV-2, HIV, hepatitis C)
  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Disease (including stroke)
  • Chronic Lung Disease

The LOIs are used to facilitate review planning. Additionally, they are a valuable feedback tool to further strengthen the full proposal applications. Investigators may be asked to meet with Pilot Projects Program Senior Scientific Advisors to review their LOI and discuss specific aspects of their proposal.

All investigators will receive an email notification informing them whether they are invited to submit a full proposal or not. 

Investigators whose projects are consistent with our mission and the scope of this RFA will be invited to submit full proposals. Unsolicited full proposals from PIs who do not submit an LOI will not be reviewed nor considered for funding.
