The National Institutes of Health (NIH) requests applications for its Summer Institute Program to Increase Diversity in Health-Related Research (SIPID).  This program will fund summer institutes to enable faculty and scientists from under-represented racial and ethnic groups and faculty and scientists with disabilities to further develop their research skills and knowledge, enhancing their career development as faculty members or scientists. The primary goal of this program is to encourage scientists and research-oriented faculty to develop research skills and gain experience in advanced methods and experimental approaches in basic and applied sciences relevant to heart, lung, blood, and sleep (HLBS) disorders, so that they may compete for external funding for scientific research in the biomedical and behavioral sciences.

In response to this initiative, each SIPID applicant should propose to design, organize, implement, and evaluate a summer institute for scientific career development of selected candidates. The goal of the summer institute program will be to enhance research careers by developing skills in designing research on HLBS studies, preparing research grants, and obtaining external funding of the participants’ research.  The topic area of each SIPID application may be either: 1) a broad scientific discipline, 2) a broad disease area relevant to HLBS disorders, or 3) a multidisciplinary approach to an HLBS disorder. Applicants should propose topics that are relevant to participants from multiple underrepresented ethnic and racial groups. Each summer institute program should focus on only one of the above three areas and should address the scientific career development needs of selected participants.

Because MU can make only 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, April 22, 2005.  Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should 1) specify the proposed topic area, 2) summarize the proposed project, 3) identify potential collaborators, and 4) outline the anticipated budget.

Amount: A total of up to $960,000 over 4 years
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, April 22, 2005
NIH Deadline: August 14, 2005 (letter of intent)
  September 14, 2005 (full application)
