The NIH will award T32 training grants in translational research on the neurobiology of disease to train scientists to identify and conduct research on neurobiological questions that are clinically relevant and to learn how to move the results and the knowledge gained from basic research into clinical and disease-oriented research, as well as to appreciate how findings in clinical research can serve to inform and refine basic research. Four types of full-time trainees may be supported: 1) Predoctoral Trainees in a neuroscience-oriented PhD or equivalent doctoral degree program; 2) Trainees in an accredited MD/PhD program at a medical school who will receive both an MD, DO, DDS, or equivalent professional degree and a PhD; 3) Short-Term Research Training for Health-Professional Students; and 4) Postdoctoral Trainees with research or clinical doctoral degrees to prepare for a research career in translational neuroscience.

The proposed training program must be thematic, focusing not upon a specific disease but upon mechanisms that may be shared by a number of diseases and disorders and must include training in the progression of disease from molecules to behavioral, to prevention or treatment. The intent of this RFA is to support comprehensive, multidisciplinary research training. The training programs will focus on training scientists to use the tools and techniques commonly applied to both basic and clinical research and across disciplines and NIH institute missions–scientists that can identify and appreciate mechanistic links and common biological themes that span disorders of the nervous system.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, December 16, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should include 1) a tentative listing of the faculty members to be involved in the program, 2) a description of the proposed theme, and 3) a summary of the proposed training activities.

Amount: Up to $300,000 per year for up to 5 years
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, December 16, 2005 (letter of intent)
Sponsor Deadline:

February 22, 2006
