Research Supplements to Promote Re-Entry into Biomedical and Behavioral Research Careers (Admin Supp)
PA-16-289

The Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) and participating Institutes and Centers (ICs) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) announce the continuation of the program for administrative supplements to research grants to support individuals with high potential to re-enter an active research career after an interruption for family responsibilities or other qualifying circumstances.

The purpose of these supplements is to encourage such individuals to re-enter research careers within the missions of all the program areas of NIH. 

Contact NHGRI Program Staff, see IC-specific table in program announcement.

 

Administrative supplements may be submitted throughout the fiscal year, but should be requested at least 90 days prior to the anticipated need and no later than by May 15.

Supplements submitted through the eRA Commons must be accompanied by written confirmation from the NHGRI program director stating that s/he will accept the application. An application without such a letter will not be considered and will be returned to the grantee.

Acceptance of a supplement application in the eRA Commons does not guarantee funding. Funding is contingent upon the availability of funds and administrative review of the request.

Please reference NHGRI Guidelines for Administrative Supplements.

Administrative Supplement for Research on Sex/Gender Influences (Admin Supp - Clinical Trial Optional)
PA-18-658
The Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) announces the availability of administrative supplements to support research highlighting the impact of sex/gender influences in human health and illness, including basic, preclinical, clinical, translational, and behavioral studies. Of special interest are studies relevant to understanding the significance of biological sex on cells and tissue explants; comparative studies of male and female tissues, organ systems and physiological systems; sex-based comparisons of pathophysiology, biomarkers, gene expression, clinical presentation and prevention and treatment of diseases. The most robust experimental designs include consideration of both sex and gender; therefore, applications proposing to investigate the influence of both sex and gender factors are highly encouraged. The proposed research must address at least one objective from Goals 1 through 3 of the NIH Strategic Plan for Women's Health Research.      Application Receipt/Submission Date(s): March 26, 2018
Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Fellowship for Students at Institutions Without NIH-Funded Institutional Predoctoral Dual-Degree Training Programs (Parent F30)
PA-18-673

The purpose of the Kirschstein-NRSA, dual-doctoral degree, predoctoral fellowship (F30) is to enhance the integrated research and clinical training of promising predoctoral students, who are matriculated in a combined MD/PhD or other dual-doctoral degree training program (e.g. D.O./Ph.D., D.D.S./Ph.D., Au.D./Ph.D., D.V.M./Ph.D.), and who intend careers as physician-scientists or other clinician-scientists. Applicants must propose an integrated research and clinical training plan and a dissertation research project in scientific health-related fields relevant to the missions of the participating NIH Institutes and Centers. The fellowship experience is expected to clearly enhance the individuals' potential to develop into productive, independent physician-scientists or other clinician-scientists.

NHGRI will give funding priority to: (a) applications that focus on genomic sciences and genomic medicine approaches with an emphasis on the quantitative sciences, bioinformatics or technology development, or (b) applications that focus on high priority ELSI issues and provide multidisciplinary conceptual and methodological training, and (c) applicants whose mentor(s) are funded by NHGRI. NHGRI does not support disease-specific research.

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 Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research agenda. Research training programs will incorporate didactic, research, and career development components 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-14-016).

NHGRI will consider applications in the areas of: (1) genomic sciences; (2) genomic medicine; and (3) ethical, legal and social implications of genomics research.

Short-term Training Positions Allowed: No

Travel Costs: For travel expenses for trainees, contact program staff. NHGRI will provide additional travel expenses of up to $2,000 each year for the primary PD/PI, and other training faculty members closely associated with the training program, to travel to the NHGRI annual networking meeting which will be held in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.

This is an award that is made to an institution and not individuals. Individuals must be accepted into a doctoral program at the institution where there is a NHGRI-supported T32 grant. The program director of the training grant selects individuals to participate in the T32 program.

See the list of current NHGRI T32 supported programs.

NOT-HG-14-029

This funding opportunity seeks to facilitate the training of individuals at all careers levels (the undergraduate, graduate,post baccalaureate, postdoctoral and faculty levels) from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in scientific disciplines relevant to genomics to enable them to pursue genomics research that spans all areas of interest to NHGRI later in their careers. This is a limited competition funding opportunity announcement and is limited to PD(s)/PI(s) with NHGRI applications or grants in the following areas: Centers of Excellence in Genome Science; databases, large-scale sequencing and institutional training grants. In all cases, the PD/PI of any of the previous applications/grants cited above, must be the PD/PI of the R25.

This R25 grant is made to an institution and not to individuals. The career levels supported under this award are undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, and graduate students (for a limited time only). Because each NHGRI-supported program supports different career levels, individuals are encouraged to contact the PI of the grant for additional information about career levels and how to apply.

See the list of current NHGRI R25 programs.

Application Due Dates:
