To enable clinicians to carry out clinica ltrials for the development of novel therapies,intervention and diagnostics, focusing on healthcare needs. • Supports ICTs that involve both clinician and company contributing intellectual inputs and funds to conduct the trial and developing novel or pre-existing therapies/drugs/medical device for new indications. • This scheme does not support trials that are fully funded/sponsored by companies. Such trials typically do not require the clinicians’ intellectual inputs as the clinical trial protocol has already been designed by the company, and the clinicians’ involvement is more for subject/patient recruitment.

Grant application to be led by a Clinical Principal Investigator (PI). • Applicants who are applying as new investigators category have to work with a mentor for guidance in their research. This mentoring will provide support for a period of supervised research leading eventually to the clinical investigators conducting larger scale research projects independently. Please note that the NIG is intended to fund a new investigator’s independent project, and not to provide additional funding for the mentor's project (or clinical trial). • To be eligible for NIGs in general, the following requirements apply: (i) Applicants must not have held any national grants (e.g., NMRC, A*STAR, NRF, MOE AcRF Tier II, etc) or international grants (e.g., MRC, NIH, NHMRC, etc) as a PI/Co-PI* prior to the award of the NIG. (ii) Applicants must not have received funding to conduct their own research project which cumulatively exceeds $300,000. This can be funding from any sources. *Co-PIs refer to PIs whose projects are jointly led by other PIs (e.g. projects under NMRC’s Bedside & Bench grant). They are not the same as, and should not be confused with Co-Investigators (Co-Is). [-]
