From the GMR: Two new NLM grant program announcements in the NIH Guide this week

In the May 14 issue of the NIH Guide, 2 announcements of newly-issued NLM grant programs

NLM Information Resource Grants to Reduce Health Disparities (G08)
(RFA-LM-10-001)
National Library of Medicine
Application Receipt Date(s): July 14, 2010
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-LM-10-001.html

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) solicits resource grant applications for projects that will bring useful, usable health information to health disparity populations and the health care providers who care for those populations. Access to useful, usable, understandable health information is an important factor during health decisions. Proposed projects should exploit the capabilities of computer and information technology and health sciences libraries to bring health-related information to consumers and their health care providers. Preference will be given to applications that show strong involvement of health science libraries. Preference will also be given to applications submitted by or that involve minority-serving institutions.

NLM Independent Career Development Award for Biomedical Informatics (K22)
(PAR-10-195)
National Library of Medicine
Application Receipt Date(s): Multiple dates, see announcement.
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-10-195.html

The purpose of the NLM Independent Career Development Award for Biomedical Informatics (K22) program is to facilitate the transition of investigators from the mentored to the independent stage of their careers by providing "protected time" for newly independent investigators to develop and receive support for their initial research programs. The award applies to biomedical informaticians who are pursuing research in clinical informatics, public health informatics or translational informatics. Preference will be given to candidates who received their informatics training at one of NLM's university-based training programs in biomedical informatics.
