This FOA will use the NIH Research Education (R25) grant mechanism. There are no specific budget limitations; however, the requested direct costs must be reasonable, well documented, fully justified and commensurate with the scope of the proposed program. The total project period for an application submitted in response to this funding opportunity may not exceed five years. Cost sharing is not required.
The following organizations or institutions are eligible to apply: public or state-controlled institutions of higher education; and private institutions of higher education. The applicant institution must award the baccalaureate and/or doctoral degree in biomedical and/or behavioral science fields and must have a demonstrated commitment to the special encouragement of, and assistance to, underrepresented faculty, students, and investigators in biomedical and/or behavioral sciences. In addition, applicant institutions must have research-intensive environments with significant numbers of potential mentors with NIH R01 or equivalent extramural research support. Institutions supported by the MBRS Support of Competitive Research (SCORE) or Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE) programs are not eligible to apply for or hold IMSD grants. Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply in response to this FOA.
In many cases, it is anticipated that the proposed research education program will complement other ongoing research training occurring at the applicant institution and that a substantial number of program faculty will have active research projects in which participants may gain relevant experiences consistent with their research interests and goals. Institutions with existing Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) institutional training grants (e.g., T32) 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. Moreover, the R25 mechanism is not intended to support long-term training by NRSA-eligible individuals and may not be used to circumvent or supplement Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA research training mechanisms.
Any individual(s) with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as the Project Director/Principal Investigator (PD/PI) is invited to work with his/her organization to develop an application for support. Individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are always encouraged to apply for NIH support. The PD/PI should be an established basic, behavioral, and/or clinical researcher capable of providing both administrative and scientific leadership to the development and implementation of the proposed research education program; he or she should have a successful past training record and available resources to conduct the proposed research training program at the institution. The PD/PI will be responsible for the overall direction, management and administration of the research training program and the submission of all required forms in a timely manner. The PD/PI will be expected to monitor and assess the program, submitting annual reports as required. More than one PD/PI (i.e., multiple PDs/PIs), may be designated on the application for projects that require a "team science" approach and therefore clearly do not fit the single-PD/PI model. Eligible institutions may only receive one IMSD award. Research education programs may not be transferred from one institution to another.
The goal of the IMSD Program is to increase the number of students from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences that complete the Ph.D. degree in these fields at institutions with research intensive environments. The program provides institutional grants to establish research training programs at institutions with research intensive environments that will increase the preparation and skills of underrepresented students in the biomedical and behavioral sciences as they academically advance in the pursuit of the Ph.D. degree in these fields. This is a reissue of PAR-06-553. CFDA 93.859
