Limited Submission Announcement

The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) solicits applications for Research Career Development Programs in Emergency Medicine Research (K12) from applicant organizations that propose to develop multidisciplinary clinical research training programs in emergency medicine (EM) that prepare clinician-scientists for academic leadership roles and independent research careers in emergency medicine.

Programs will provide comprehensive research training to evaluate innovative approaches for the diagnosis and clinical management of patients with acute, life-threatening manifestations of cardiovascular, pulmonary and hematologic diseases, and severe trauma in emergency department (ED) settings. Programs will provide graduate training in clinical research methodology, epidemiology, health services research, statistics, ethics, as well as comprehensive training in the unique procedures required to collect data in emergency care settings.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, September 3, 2010. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1) the immediate and long-term objectives of the program, 2) a summary of planned courses, curricula, seminars, workshops, or tutorials which will be incorporated into the career development program, 3) mentored research experiences and activities, 4) program evaluation plans, and 5) the names of three MU personnel who would be qualified to serve as internal reviewers for letters of intent under this program.


The total project period may not exceed five years. Although the size of award may vary with the scope of the institutional research career development program proposed, it is expected that applications will stay within the following direct cost thresholds: Year 1: $200,000, Year 2: $500,000, Year 3: $1,000,000, Year 4: $1,150,000, and Year 5: $1,000,000.
