0 comments

We’re pleased to announce that the notices of funding opportunities (NOFOs) for the Undergraduate Research Training Initiative for Student Enhancement (U-RISE) (PAR-24-137) and Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) (PAR-24-138) programs have been reissued. These NOFOs aim to promote broad participation in the biomedical research workforce by strengthening research training environments and expanding the pool of well-trained students who:

  • Complete their baccalaureate degree, and
  • Transition into and complete biomedical, research-focused higher degree programs (such as a Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.).

Virtual Meeting for Advancing Research Careers (ARC) Predoc to Postdoc Transition Program (F99/K00) Applicants

0 comments

We’re pleased to announce a virtual “office hour” on May 1 for potential applicants to our new Advancing Research Careers (ARC) predoctoral to postdoctoral transition award (F99/K00).

The ARC program is part of the National Institutes of Health’s efforts to promote broad participation within the biomedical research workforce. It has two components: an individual predoctoral to postdoctoral career transition award (F99/K00) and an institutional research education cooperative agreement (UE5) to provide these scholars with additional mentoring, networking, and professional development activities. The office hour will focus on the F99/K00 portion.

SuRE R16 Program Funding Announcements and Upcoming Webinar

0 comments

UPDATE: The SuRE webinar occurred on April 2. The presentation slides [PDF] are now available and the video will be added soon.

We’re pleased to announce that two funding opportunities for the Support for Research Excellence (SuRE) program have been reissued.

SuRE awards support investigator-initiated research projects in NIH mission areas and are open to faculty at institutions that award bachelor and/or graduate science degrees, receive limited NIH research support, and either serve a substantial number of students supported by Pell grants or are historically Black colleges and universities or Tribal colleges and universities. Faculty investigators who aren’t currently program directors/principal investigators (PD/PIs) of an active NIH research project grant are eligible to apply for a SuRE award (PAR-24-144). Faculty who haven’t had any prior independent research funding as PD/PIs are encouraged to apply for the SuRE-First award (PAR-24-145).

0 comments

UPDATE: The slides [PDF] for this webinar are available.

We’re pleased to announce our Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) has been reissued (PAR-24-128). This NOFO continues our support of eligible, domestic organizations to develop and implement effective, evidence-informed approaches to dual-degree training and mentoring that will keep pace with the rapid evolution of the biomedical research enterprise and lead to the completion of both a clinical degree (for example, M.D., D.O., D.V.M., D.D.S., Pharm.D.) and a research doctorate degree (Ph.D.). We expect that the proposed research training programs will incorporate didactic, research, and career development elements to prepare trainees for careers that will have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the nation.

UPDATE: The video and slides [PDF] from this webinar are now available.

We’re pleased to announce the availability of administrative supplements to Institutional Development Award (IDeA) U54, P20, and P30 grants for team science projects (NOT-GM-24-001). The supplements are intended for projects that bring together two to four investigators from IDeA states with different scientific expertise to address complex basic, behavioral, clinical, and/or translational research questions through complementary approaches. The questions shouldn’t duplicate those that researchers are currently pursuing through the parent awards and should clearly benefit from the collective efforts of the collaboration.
