- This RFA is an initiative of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research (http://neuroscienceblueprint.nih.gov), a trans-NIH partnership to accelerate neuroscience research. Fifteen Institutes and Centers are participating in the Neuroscience Blueprint. This RFA will be administered by the NIMH on behalf of the Neuroscience Blueprint.
- This funding opportunity supports the development and initiation or the significant expansion of courses on the neurobiology of disease for graduate students receiving basic neuroscience training. It is expected that each course will span a breadth of diseases and disorders affecting the nervous system, emphasizing links and common themes across diseases/disorders, and addressing both the pathology of these diseases/disorders and their basic science underpinnings.
- The participating Institutes have committed approximately $1.2M to support this RFA in FY05. However, the total amount awarded and the number of awards made will depend upon the number, quality, and cost of the applications received.
- It is anticipated that approximately 15 awards will be made. An applicant may request a project period of up to two years with direct costs up to $75,000 in year 1 and up to $50,000 in year 2.
- This RFA will use the research education grant (R25) mechanism.
- Only domestic, non-profit, public or private institutions may apply for this RFA. To be eligible to apply, these institutions must have a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) institutional training grant (T32) focused on basic neuroscience training that has a predoctoral component and that was awarded by one of the 15 participating NIH Institutes and Centers. T32s with only a postdoctoral component do not confer eligibility. Moreover, there must be a minimum of one full year remaining on this T32 on September 30, 2005. This one-year period may reflect either the current performance period of the eligible T32 or the performance period of a competing T32 application pending award at the time of application for this RFA.
- Eligible principal investigators include, but are not limited to, individuals with a track record in graduate neuroscience education and program directors of basic neuroscience institutional training grants.
- Each eligible institution may submit only one application to develop and initiate or significantly expand a graduate level course on the neurobiology of disease that will be available to the entire neuroscience community at that institution.
- The PHS 398 application kit is available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html in an interactive format.
- Telecommunication for the hearing impaired is available at: TTY 301-451-0088.
