For institutions with relatively new programs of research, NINR supports programs of Centers focused on building research expertise and teams for the future. These Centers, awarded using the P20 Exploratory Grant mechanism, support the initial enhancement of research capacity at institutions with emerging research programs. The awards support shared resources and several small exploratory research projects conducted by several investigators focused on a common research theme. These Centers are expected to lead to: improved capabilities at institutions with nascent research programs; an increased number of investigators involved in interdisciplinary research of importance to NINR; and larger scale research projects capable of competing for R21 or R01 levels of support.
