In collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Fogarty International Center (FIC) invites applications for their International Collaborative Trauma and Injury Research Training Programs to establish research training programs that contribute to the capacity of developing country investigators and institutions to conduct human trauma and injury research relevant to the health needs of the developing country.  The program will enhance and promote equitable international collaborations between investigators in the developed world and those in low- and middle-income nations in which a base level of institutional infrastructure for the advancement of sustainable trauma and injury science is already established.  Each proposed program should provide opportunities to generate the combined expertise at the developing country institution that could contribute to the long-term goal of harnessing new injury knowledge and skills to assess, diagnose, prevent or ameliorate acute and long-term morbidity and mortality stemming from a health issue with a significant injury component.

Programs should include training in one or more of the following areas: injury statistics and epidemiology, prevention, biological and behavioral sciences, clinical injury and trauma care, blood product research, rehabilitation programs or low-cost prosthetics, medical imaging such as low-cost imaging development, the use of technology to diagnose and localize injury, bioengineering methods and technology, mental health issues such as traumatic stress disorders (acute and post-trauma phases), depression, suicide risk, post-trauma injury and nursing care issues and medical informatics.

Only one application may be submitted from any given institution, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, 203 Jesse Hall, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, April 15, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should identify potential collaborators, outline the research and training activities, and estimate the project budget.

Amount: up to $150,000 per year in direct costs for up to five years of support.
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 15, 2005
External Deadlines: Letter of Intent: July 25, 2005
  Full Proposal - August 25, 2005
