NIBIB/NIH Research Education Programs for Residents and Clinical Fellows

 The NIBIB/NIH Research Education Grant is seeking applications from institutions/organizations that propose to support the development and/or implementation of programs that relate to the research education and training of residents and clinical fellows, to foster their careers as clinician-scientists. The PD(s)/PI(s) must have a faculty appointment in a Department of Radiology. The participants in this research education program must be residents and clinical fellows in programs including, but not limited to: cardiology; neurology; orthopaedics; ophthalmology; radiology; or surgery (see Eligible Individuals in the full program announcement).

The NIH recognizes a unique and compelling need to promote diversity in the research workforce. Accordingly, the NIH continues to encourage institutions to diversify their student and faculty populations, and thus to increase the participation of individuals currently underrepresented in the biomedical, clinical, behavioral, and social sciences. Such individuals include: those from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups; individuals with disabilities; and individuals from socially, culturally, economically, or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. PD(s)/PI(s) are encouraged to consider participants from diverse backgrounds for this funding opportunity.

This is a limited submission opportunity; the University may submit only one (1) grant application. Interested faculty must submit an abstract, CV, and budget to Dean Puzas (Catherine_muzytchuk@urmc.rochester.edu) by March 1, 2013. Please use the words "Radiology R25” in the subject line. The Deans will choose a candidate by March 9, 2013.

The Letter of Intent is due April 23, 2013. The full proposal is due May 23, 2013. It is important to remember that ORPA must receive electronic proposals five (5) business days prior to the sponsor’s deadline, along with a completed and signed University sign-off form.
