R15: Academic Research Enhancement Awards (AREA)

AREAs (R15) support individual research projects in the biomedical and behavioral sciences conducted by faculty located in health professional schools and other academic components that have not been major recipients of NIH research grant funds. Unlike other funding mechanisms AREA awards require a plan for involving undergraduates in the proposed research.
