This FOA encouragesResearch Education Grant (R25) applications from institutions/organizations that propose to support the development and/or implementation of programs that relate to the research education and training of residents and clinical fellows to foster their careers as clinician-scientists. The PD(s)/PI(s) (see below) must have a faculty appointment in a Department of Radiology and the participants in this research education program must be residents and clinical fellows in programs including, but not limited to, cardiology, neurology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, radiology, or surgery (see Eligible Individuals). The NIH recognizes a unique and compelling need to promote diversity in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical and social sciences research workforce. Accordingly, the NIH continues to encourage institutions to diversify their student and faculty populations and thus to increase the participation of individuals currently underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences such as: individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups; individuals with disabilities, and individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. PD(s)/PI(s) are encouraged to consider participants from diverse backgrounds for this funding opportunity (see Recruitment and Retention Plan to Enhance Diversity).
Only one application per institution is allowed.
The proposed PD(s)/PI(s) must hold a health professional degree (e.g., MD, or equivalent) and have a faculty appointment in a Radiology Department. Exceptions to these requirements, although not anticipated, must be approved in advance in writing by the NIBIB Director of Interdisciplinary Training. The participants in this research education program must be residents and clinical fellows in programs including, but not limited to, cardiology, neurology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, radiology, or surgery.
Institutions with existing T32 training grants or other Federally-funded training programs may apply for a research education grant provided that the proposed educational experiences are distinct from those training programs receiving NIH support. However, funding priority wil be given to applicant institutions which do not have active residency research training programs. Departments that have T32 training grants for the training of residents or clinician-scientists should briefly describe the purpose of these training programs, and provide a detailed explanation of the distinction between the intended participants of this research education program and the intended population that would constitute trainees in the T32 program(s).
Base Support for Research Education Programs (Year 1). Although the size of the award may vary among research education programs, applications may not request annual direct costs of more than $70,000 per participant per year. Grants submitted in response to this FOA will support salary plus fringe benefits for a minimum of 9 person-months (equivalent to 75% of full-time professional effort) effort for a period of 12 months per participant. Grants may also request up to $10,000 for research-related expenses and up to $1,000 for travel to appropriate scientific meetings per participant per year. Programs may request support for up to two participants during the first year. Once a primary grant has been awarded, administrative supplement requests for participant support may be submitted (see below).
Supplemental Support Requests to request support for up to two participants per year may be made as administrative supplements as outline in Section IV. Application and Submission Information. An NIH Guide Notice explaining the application procedures for administrative supplements will be published at a future date.
