Request Research Help

The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) are accepting applications from institutions that propose to establish new or to enhance existing team-based design courses in undergraduate Biomedical Engineering departments or programs.

This FOA targets undergraduate students at the senior level, but may also include junior undergraduates and first-year graduate students. Courses that address innovative and/or ground-breaking development, multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary training, and clinical immersion are especially encouraged. This FOA will use the NIH Research Education (R25) grant mechanism.

This is a limited submission opportunity; the University may submit only one (1) grant application.

Faculty at the River Campus interested in submitting a proposal must submit an abstract, CV, and budget to the Deans via Debra Haring ( or Cindy Gary (

Interested faculty at the Medical Center must submit an abstract, CV, and budget to Dean Puzas via Catherine Muzytchuk (, using the phrase “Biomedical Education” in the subject line.

The deadline for submissions to the Deans is March 4, 2013.  The Deans will forward their ranked submissions to Associate Provost Jason Adsit by March 18, 2013. The Interim Vice President for Research will decide which submission will move forward by March 25.

The complete program solicitation can be found here.

The optional Letter of Intent is due April 13, 2013. The deadline for the full proposal is May 13, 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.
