The NIH Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) Career Development Programs support mentored research career development of junior faculty members, known as BIRCWH Scholars, who have recently completed clinical training or postdoctoral fellowships, and who will be engaged in interdisciplinary basic, translational, behavioral, clinical, and/or health services research relevant to women's health or sex/gender factors.

The goal of this initiative is to increase the number and skills of investigators through a mentored research and career development experience leading to an independent scientific career that will benefit the health of women, including research on sex/gender similarities or differences in biology, health or disease. The programs will accomplish these goals by ensuring that mentors represent diverse disciplines needed to carry out interdisciplinary projects that will bridge career development/training with research independence for BIRCWH scholars.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, July 28, 2006. Letters of intent should be limited to a two page summary of the research to be pursued.
