NIBIB Research Education Programs for Residents and Clinical Fellows

Program Summary

This FOA  encourages Research 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.


Applicant organizations may submit only one application in response to this FOA.

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.

Award Information

Application budgets are not limited, but must conform to the allowable cost structure described in the FOA.  The maximum period is 5 years.
