NIH Awards (Dollars by Grant Mechanism)

Lerner Research Institute received $127 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health in 2017.

$61.2 million (48%) funded R01 grants, which support individual projects that align with Cleveland Clinic's basic and clinical research programs. These awards can be investigator-initiated or solicited via request for applications.

$7 million (6%) funded other types of R awards. These are smaller individual grants that support early-stage research, research infrastructure, educational programs and shared equipment.

$25.1 million (20%) funded P awards. P series grants, called program project/center grants, support teams of investigators conducting integrated, collaborative research projects and programs that have a well-defined, central research focus. In addition to individual research projects, they also provide support for shared resources.

$27.1 million (21%) funded U01 cooperative agreements. Like R01 grants, U01 grants support investigator-specific research projects and infrastructure. The major distinction is that cooperative agreements enable NIH to provide input on some decisions in collaboration with the principal investigator.

$6.6 million (5%) funded other types of grants, which primarily provide training and career support for early-stage investigators including doctoral students, postdoctoral fellows and other trainees.
