Funding Opportunity: Modules for Enhancing Biomedical Research Workforce Training


UPDATE: An informational webinar on these modules will be held on April 28 from 2-3:30 ET. For details see NOT-GM-22-035.

We’re pleased to announce a new notice of special Interest (NOSI) calling for applications to develop training modules on wellness and resiliency, and structural racism and discrimination in research training environments (NOT-GM-22-016). The proposed modules should impact individuals from a broad range of scientific disciplines and career stages and cover material not typically taught as part of current institutional coursework. The modules can take many different formats and approaches and should be timely, informative, engaging, easily accessible, and free to everyone. Applications must focus on one of the following topics:

  • Enhancing Wellness and Resiliency
    Proposed modules should effectively provide individuals with the knowledge and skills to enhance their wellness, resiliency, and ultimate success within their current biomedical research training environment.
  • Addressing Structural Racism and Discrimination to
    Reduce Disparities

    Proposed modules should address structural racism and discrimination to reduce disparities and to promote and improve access, inclusion, and equity in research training environments. Modules should focus on how to create research training environments free from harassment, intimidation, and discrimination—where all participants feel safe, respected, and supported.

The application deadline is June 20.

As indicated in the NOSI, these are the only topics eligible for funding this year under the modules for enhancing biomedical research workforce training funding opportunity announcement (FOA). More details are available in the FOA and in the associated NOSI. Stay tuned for future topics of interest to NIGMS for subsequent due dates. To view previously funded modules on topics for enhancing rigor, transparency, and reproducibility, visit the NIGMS clearinghouse.
