Session Abstract (150 words): 

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases of the National Institutes of Health uses several approaches to support research, including the P01 Program Project Grant mechanism. This mechanism provides funding for at least two inter-related research projects, which are required to address a central research problem in a conceptually inter-related manner, as well as administrative and scientific core services. The individual P01 research projects are each roughly equivalent in scale and scope to a NIH R01 grant, but the aim is that, together, the P01 projects produce higher synergy and address more complex scientific questions than individuals R01s. The central question of this study was: given the higher funding costs of P01 grants, what additional value does the P01 provide in comparison with R01s in terms of research synergy, productivity, and scientific impact? This poster illustrates the process and outcome evaluation methodology, key study findings, and strengths and limitations.
