Thank you for your interest in the CHIME program. We have seen a very positive and enthusiastic response from all over the world.

As of August 20, we are only 10 projects short of the originally planned 30 studies. Given the high number of submissions in the final stages of review, we plan to close the CHIME submission window on August 31. We will review any final submissions based on the order they were received and scientific merit, and will consider approving more than 30 projects, if budget remains.

The deadline for interested parties to submit is Friday August 31 at 11:59PM US Pacific. LOIs received after the deadline will not be reviewed. All 3 documents must be received for consideration: (1) Letter of Intent (all fields must be completed), (2) PI’s Curriculum Vitae, (3) Overhead Policy Form signed by authorized representative.

Please contact your local medical scientist if you have any questions.
