Fogarty International Center (FIC) invites applications for the creation of new, multidisciplinary programs that will foster global health research and teaching within and between institutions, to be called Framework Programs for Global Health. Health concerns have become the shared concerns of many nations and health crises can rapidly spread from one country to another. These health challenges encompass biomedical, social, environmental, political and economic dimensions and, consequently, may best be addressed through multidisciplinary teams and interdisciplinary approaches.

Two core activities will be to create an administrative framework to bring multiple schools (engineering, business, chemistry, biology, communications, public health, medicine, dental, environmental studies, and others) together on the topic of global health and to develop multidisciplinary global health curricula at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The goals of these programs will be to encourage greater involvement of National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded researchers in global health, to facilitate greater collaboration and interactions among global health research and training programs at domestic and foreign sites, to bring new participants into the global health discussion, and to engage the next generation of scientists and health workers to choose careers in global health.

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 2, 2005. Letters of intent should be limited to 3 pages and should summarize 1) the schools/colleges to be involved in the project and the proposed administrative framework, 2) goals of the proposed curricula, and 3) anticipated new courses to be proposed.

Amount: For a Framework award, an applicant may request a project period of up to three years and a budget of up to $125,000 direct costs per year. For a planning grant, applicants may request a project period of up to two years and a budget of up to $25,000 direct costs per year.
