Enhancing Science, Technology, EnginEering, and Math Educational Diversity (ESTEEMED) Research Education Experiences (R25)
PAR-17-221
Full announcement

Full proposal (letter of intent due 4/24/2017).  The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH.  The over-arching goal of this National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)  R25 program is to support educational activities that enhance the diversity of the biomedical, behavioral and clinical research workforce.  To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on     Research Experiences and Mentoring Activities for underrepresented undergraduate freshmen and sophomores in a science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) field, especially those fields which broadly impact bioengineering. The ESTEEMED program is intended to support underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. It will prepare these participants for an Advanced Honors Program, such as a MARC U-STAR (T34) program and institutional program with similar goals, in the junior and senior years and subsequently, to pursue a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D. degree and a biomedical research career in academia or industry.

Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Short-Term Institutional Research Training Grant (Parent T35)
PA-16-151
Full announcement

FULL PROPOSAL:  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will award Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Short-Term Institutional Research Training Grants (T35) to eligible, domestic institutions to develop and/or enhance research training opportunities for predoctoral students interested in careers in biomedical, behavioral or clinical research. Many NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) use this NRSA program exclusively to support intensive, short-term research training experiences for health professional students (medical students, veterinary students, and/or students in other health-professional programs) during the summer.  This program is also intended to encourage training of graduate students in the physical or quantitative sciences to pursue research careers by short-term exposure to, and involvement in, the health-related sciences. The training should be of sufficient depth to enable the trainees, upon completion of the program, to have a thorough exposure to the principles underlying the conduct of biomedical research.

Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grant (Parent T32)
PA-16-152
Full announcement

FULL PROPOSAL:  The National Institutes of Health (NIH) will award Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) to eligible, domestic institutions to enhance predoctoral and postdoctoral research training, including short-term research training, and help ensure that a diverse and highly trained workforce is available to meet the needs of the Nations biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research agenda. Research training programs will incorporate didactic, research, and career development elements to prepare individuals for careers that will have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation. Programs proposing only short-term research training should not apply to this announcement, but rather to the Kirschstein-NRSA Short-Term Institutional Research Training Grant Program (T35) exclusively reserved for predoctoral, short-term research training (see PA-16-151).

Resource-Related Research Projects for Development of Animal Models and Related Materials (R24)
PAR-16-369
Full announcement

FULL PROPOSAL: This FOA encourages grant applications aimed at developing, characterizing or improving animal models of human diseases; improving access to data and information about or generated from the use of animal models of human disease; or improving diagnosis and control of diseases of laboratory animals. The animal models and related materials to be developed must address the research interests of two or more of the categorical NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs). Applications to develop models that relate strictly to a specific disease or category of research will not be considered acceptable. Projects that predominantly address the research interests of one NIH Institute or Center but are peripherally related to the research interests of other Institutes and Centers will not be considered appropriate for this FOA.

Support of NIGMS Program Project Grants (P01)
PAR-16-433
Full announcement

Full proposal (letter of intent due 30 days before full proposal). This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) issued by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences encourages innovative, interactive Program Project grant applications from institutions/organizations that propose to conduct research which aims to solve a significant biological problem, important for the mission of NIGMS, through a collaborative approach involving outstanding scientists. The Program Project grant is designed to support research in which the funding of several interdependent projects as a group offers significant scientific advantages over support of these same projects as individual regular research grants.

National Cancer Institute Youth Enjoy Science Research Education Program (R25)
PAR-17-059
Full announcement

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH.  The over-arching goal of this National Cancer Institute (NCI)  R25 program is to support educational activities that enhance the diversity of the biomedical, behavioral and clinical research workforce.  To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on     Research Experiences, Curriculum or Methods Development and Outreach. The NCI’s mission is to conduct and support research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to cancer. This funding opportunity seeks to facilitate the education of students from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical research who will become knowledgeable about cancer, and available to focus on cancer later in their careers. With the aim of enhancing the pool of individuals from underrepresented backgrounds interested in pursuing a career in biomedical research via early intervention strategies, the NCI Youth Enjoy Science (YES) Program will support efforts to create and maintain an institutional program to engage grades 6-12 and/or undergraduate students from underrepresented populations in cutting edge cancer research experiences. The proposed institutional programs may also provide research experiences for the grade 6-12 teachers and undergraduate faculty members who serve underrepresented student populations. The specific goals are to inspire interest in biomedical sciences, help envision research as a career path, and strengthen practical research and career skills. In alignment with these goals, institutions may develop unique programs that capitalize on their research strengths and are responsive to their target populations. Letter of intent due 30 days prior to due date (not required).
