The NIH is inviting applications for the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award Institutional Predoctoral Training Program in the Neurosciences. The aim of the program is to encourage and support broad, early-stage (pre-dissertation) training in the neurosciences by offering institutions a single, comprehensive training grant. This program supports the early years of graduate training, typically the first and second years, before full-time thesis research begins. Trainees are expected to be participants in a formal predoctoral curriculum offering broad and fundamental training in the neurosciences. We encourage a curriculum that spans the breadth of neurosciences in terms of the level of analysis (genes to molecules to cells to integrated, functional systems), approaches (including translational research), and the neuroscience of disease and disorders. The training program would include core courses, laboratory rotations, and programmatic activities, but would exclude full-time dissertation research.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research, ltdsub@missouri.edu, no later than 5:00 pm Friday, March 24, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a 3-page summary of the proposed training program.

Amount: $100,000 to $450,000
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, March 24, 2006 (letter of intent)
