Changes to the R15 Academic Research Enhancement Award (AREA)

Hello,

I want to share a relatively recent blog post from the NIH concerning changes to the R15 AREA program:

https://nexus.od.nih.gov/all/2018/12/03/changes-to-the-r15-academic-research-enhancement-award-area-and-introducing-the-r15-research-enhancement-award-program-reap

The focus on funding primarily undergraduate institutions and the creation of a separate FOA for health professions schools is great news for all of us! Please note that NIH will now require an institutional letter verifying eligibility as part of the letters of support attachment of R15 applications.
