The NIH National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development Program is intended to support the early career development of clinical researchers who would be expected to achieve excellence in their ability to design and oversee research in multidisciplinary team settings, and who have a high potential to become leaders in fields of clinical research critical to the overall mission of the NIH. To accomplish this, the NIH invites applications to establish Multidisciplinary Clinical Research Career Development Programs “Programs”). Programs must include a broad representation of clinically relevant disciplines and professions (including but not limited to internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, statistics, nursing, psychology, and engineering) and their various specialties and sub-specialties. Programs must include a structured core didactic component and a practical training component in various aspects of the design, conduct, and analysis of clinical research. Individuals should be trained in team research settings and will be known as NIH Clinical Research Scholars (CR Scholars).

This initiative will support the development and implementation of integrated Programs that provide CR Scholars with knowledge and skills of the discipline of clinical research that are applicable to all diseases and organ systems. Programs should be designed to provide a flexible and efficient entrance into clinical research for doctoral-level individuals with a variety of disciplinary, specialty, or sub-specialty backgrounds, should emphasize the development of the entire clinical research team, and should reflect the prolonged time to develop and support the development of competent and independent clinical researchers. By providing this career development experience in a multidisciplinary setting, it is hoped that those completing the Program will be better prepared for the multidisciplinary, real-world requirements of clinical research.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, January 28, 2005.  Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and include an overview of program activities, a listing of collaborating faculty, and an outline of the budget.

Amount: up to $950,000 direct costs for the first year, up to $2.05 million direct costs in the second year, and up to $3.37 million direct costs in the third through fifth years.

MU deadline: 5:00 p.m., February 4, 2005
NIH deadlines: Letter of Intent - February 25, 2005
  Application - March 25, 2005
  Start date of projects - September 30, 2005
