Extramural Researchers (Not Employed by NIH)
Applicants need to decide which of the five Extramural LRPs most appropriately matches to their general research area. For example, one program focuses on Contraception and Infertility Research. Applicants are strongly encouraged to read the summary descriptions of each of the LRPs below.
For the Clinical Research and Pediatric Research LRPs, individuals are given the option to indicate a preferred NIH Institute or Center (IC) for peer review. For help determining IC match, applicants should contact the appropriate LRP IC Liaison(s). It is recommended that applicants read the Mission and LRP Research Priorities Statements for each of the NIH ICs in order to determine the best match. A list of LRP IC Liaisons, IC Mission Statements, and LRP Research Priorities Statements can be found on the Contact & Engage page.
Intramural Researchers (Employed by NIH)
Applicants should contact their direct supervisor to determine if their position qualifies for the Intramural LRPs.
Applicants, in consultation with their supervisor, will determine which Intramural LRP is most appropriately matched to their research.
