The ORIP High-End Shared Instrument Grant (HEI) program encourages applications from groups of NIH-supported investigators to purchase or upgrade a single item of expensive, specialized, commercially available instruments or integrated systems that cost at least $600,000. The maximum award is $2,000,000. Types of instruments supported include, but are not limited to, X-ray diffraction systems, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and mass spectrometers, DNA sequencers, biosensors, electron and confocal microscopes, cell-sorters, and biomedical Imagers.
Amount per award: $600,000 – $2,000,000
Duration of award: 1 Year
There is no limit on the number of applications an institution may submit, provided the applications are for different types of equipment – each application is scientifically distinct.
Multiple applications from UW–Madison for similar instruments require official administrative assurance that such requests are a coordinated institutional effort and not unintended duplication. For this reason, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research & Graduate Education review of the equipment requested is required. This is not an internal competition.
