The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has issued a request for information (RFI: Approaches for Supporting Team Science in the Biomedical Research Community) in order to seek input on how best to support team-based scientific research. The NIGMS defines team science as research that requires multiple investigators to answer research questions that cannot be answered by one investigator or a group supported by a multi-PI R01 grants (Notice number: NOT-GM-16-107).
A full description of the RFI is available at:
The responses to the RFI will be accepted through June 17, 2016. Responses may be submitted as text or an attachment in an e-mail to TeamScience@mail.nih.gov or may be submitted anonymously with a web form (https://www.research.net/r/Team_Science).
We encourage our scientific community to communicate their thoughts to these important initiatives to NIH.
