The National Institutes of Health are seeking applications for Course Development in the Neurobiology of Disease (R25) to stimulate the development of broad courses on the neurobiology of disease at academic institutions that train basic neuroscientists, to encourage the integration of these courses into the neuroscience curricula throughout the home institution, and to encourage course dissemination to the neuroscience community at large. The primary goal of this RFA is to foster course development at institutions where such an offering does not exist. For institutions developing a course on the neurobiology of disease de novo, it is expected that, at minimum, a course syllabus will be fully developed in the first year and that the course will be offered in the second year of the award. A secondary goal of this RFA is to enhance existing courses on the neurobiology of disease by expanding or enhancing them substantially beyond the current course offerings.

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, January 6, 2006. 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 course(s) to be proposed.

Amount: Up to $125,000 direct costs over two years
