The solicitation does not place limits on the number of proposed staff, such as PIs, Co-PIs, or Co-Investigators.
Consideration for the new investigator/early career opportunity is restricted to applications with proposed PI(s) meeting the qualifications specified under the New Investigator/Early Career Opportunity section of the solicitation. The PI is expected to hold the senior leadership role on the proposed project.
