DBID: 1503
Category: Health and Mental Health Programs
Program: NEI Research Grant for Secondary Analysis
Agency: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; National Institutes of Health; National Eye Institute
Deadline: 6/16/2013
Description: This program encourages applications from institutions/organizations that propose to conduct secondary data analyses utilizing existing database resources. Applications may be related to, but must be distinct from, the specific aims of the original data collection. The NEI supports an extensive portfolio of clinical trials and large-scale epidemiologic research projects, wherein numerous data collection activities are required to meet each project's specific aims. The resultant wealth of data generated by these studies often provides unique, cost-effective opportunities to investigate additional research questions or develop new analytical approaches secondary to a project's originally-intended purpose. Data are not limited to those collected under NEI support but such data are of the highest programmatic interest. The R21 may be used to develop new statistical methodologies or to test hypotheses using existing data, but this FOA may not be used to support the collection of new data.

Applications are due February 16, June 16, and October 16 annually.
