Limited Submission Announcement

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invites applications for the Training in Neuroimaging: Integrating First Principles and Applications (T90/R90) program, an initiative of the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research. This program seeks to enable the development of novel, interdisciplinary training programs that integrate comprehensive training in basic neuroscience, the physical and biological bases of neuroimaging, the technologies of in vivo neuroimaging, and the application of these technologies to understanding questions in neuroscience across the life span.

Each training program must have two components: a] a pre-doctoral NRSA institutional training program (T90) and b] a short-term research education program (R90) that may include scientists at any stage of the career continuum who are interested in neuroimaging. Programs may also include a full-time non-NRSA institutional pre-doctoral training component (R90). An external advisory committee, a dissemination plan, and an evaluation plan are required.

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, December 3, 2010. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary, including 1) goals and objectives of the proposed program, 2) a description of the training activities, 3) evaluation plans, 4) how this program will strengthen neuroscience, and 5) the names of three MU personnel who would be qualified to serve as internal reviewers for letters of intent under this program.


Up to $400,000 in combined direct costs per year for a period of up to five years.

Campus Deadline for Letter of Intent:

4:00 p.m., Friday, December 3, 2010
