 NIH Director's Pioneer Award - Overview
The term “pioneering” is used to describe highly innovative – potentially transformative – approaches that have the potential to produce an unusually high impact, and the term “award” is used to mean a grant for conducting research, rather than a reward for past achievements.
Applications will be evaluated based on the likelihood that the applicant will pursue a pioneering approach to a problem of relevance to biomedical or behavioral research, the absence of alternative funding to pursue this direction; and compelling justification for the advantage of evaluation by the NDPA process rather than by the standard peer review process.
The NIH Director’s Pioneer Award is among several initiatives being undertaken as a part of the NIH Roadmap.
