The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requests applications for the Predoctoral Institutional Research Training Program in the Neurosciences. This program encourages and supports broad, early-stage (pre-dissertation) training in the neurosciences by offering institutions a single, comprehensive training grant. This program supports the early years of graduate training, typically the first and second years, before full-time thesis research begins. Trainees are expected to be participants in a formal predoctoral curriculum offering broad and fundamental training in the neurosciences.

NIH encourages a curriculum that spans the breadth of neurosciences in terms of the level of analysis (genes to molecules to cells to integrated, functional systems), approaches (including translational research), and the neuroscience of disease and disorders. The training program would include core courses, laboratory rotations, and programmatic activities, but would exclude full-time dissertation research.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program,  Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and include an outline of the training program and budget requests.

Amount: $100,000 - $450,000
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., March 25, 2005
NIH Deadline: Letter of Intent: April 10, 2005
  Full Application: May 10, 2005
