The grant funds at least three interrelated projects and, often, core resources that support at least three projects at all times. Interrelationships and synergism among component research projects should result in greater scientific contributions than if each project were supported through a separate mechanism. The grant is based on the concept that projects closely related to a central theme can be conducted more effectively and efficiently through a coordinated, collaborative, multidisciplinary approach.
Exploratory/Developmental Grants Phase II definition: The R33 award is to provide a second phase for the support for innovative exploratory and development research activities initiated under the R21 mechanism.
