The NIH Training in Neuroimaging: Integrating First Principles and Applications (T90) research training and research education program will enable the development of novel, interdisciplinary training programs that integrate comprehensive training in basic neuroscience, physical and biological bases of neuroimaging, technologies of in vivo neuroimaging, and application of these technologies to understanding questions in neuroscience across the life span. Each training program must have two components: a] a pre-doctoral institutional training program and b] a short-term research education program(s) for scientists at all stages of the career continuum who are interested in neuroimaging. 

The goal of these training programs is to train the next generation of neuroimaging researchers who understand the underlying principles and the technologies of neuroimaging as well as their application to experimental questions in neuroscience. To realize this goal, it is imperative to recruit and expose students early in their careers to the ways in which their interests can be applied to questions in neuroscience through the mathematical, physical, and chemical principles of neuroimaging. Training programs are required to interface trainees from the quantitative, engineering, and physical/chemical sciences with trainees from biomedical/biological disciplines in the same integrated training program.

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 27, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages and should include 1) a listing of the participating departments, 2) a brief description of the NRSA pre-doctoral training component, 3) a brief description of the research education program(s) for scientists interested in neuroimaging, and 4) if applicable, a brief description of the non-NRSA institutional pre-doctoral training component.

Amount: Up to $2,325,000. The direct cost of an individual award is not expected to exceed $325,000 in year one and $500,000 in each of years two through five. Awards are anticipated to begin in September 2006 for a period of up to 5 years.
MU Deadline: 5:00 p.m., Friday, January 27, 2006 (letter of intent)
