Bridge2AI -- New NIH Funding Program

NIH Vision for the program

The NIH plans to publish two Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) as part of the NIH Common Fund’s Bridge to Artificial Intelligence (Bridge2AI) program. The expected publication date for these future FOAs is June 2021, so now is a good time to start thinking about developing responsive applications. Learn more on our Bridge2AI Funding Opportunities webpage and in these Notices:

  • NOT-RM-21-021: Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for NIH Bridge2AI Integration, Dissemination, and Evaluation (BRIDGE) Center (U54 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
  • NOT-RM-21-022: Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Research Opportunity Announcement for the Data Generation Projects of the NIH Bridge to Artificial Intelligence (Bridge2AI) Program (OT2)

Please note that applications are not being solicited at this time. The Bridge2AI program is currently developing teaming activities for potential applicants, and these Notices are being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop responsive applications and to plan participation in future teaming activities.

We encourage you to share the Bridge2AI listserv signup with your contacts and networks so they will receive updates on future funding announcements and the latest news from the Bridge2AI program. You can also keep up to date with the latest information by visiting the Bridge2AI website
