The Fogarty International Center (FIC) and collaborating Institutes (NCI, NIEHS, NINDS, and NIBIB) are inviting applications for new, multidisciplinary programs that will foster Global Health research and teaching within and between institutions, to be called Framework Programs for Global Health. Specifically, the objectives are (1) to increase interactions and joint activities among investigators already engaged in Global Health teaching and research within a campus and among institutions; (2) to encourage new investigators from diverse faculties and disciplines and new institutions to enter the Global Health field; and (3) to build curricula and develop educational opportunities that will engage the next generation of scientists and health workers to consider careers in Global Health. The activities initiated under this award will create a framework of support for Global Health initiatives within an institution.

Two core activities will be to create an administrative framework to bring multiple schools (engineering, economics, business, law, arts and sciences, communications, public health, medicine, nursing, veterinary sciences, environmental studies, agriculture, and others) together on the topic of Global Health and to develop multidisciplinary Global Health curricula at the undergraduate, graduate, postdoctoral, and/or professional school levels. Each program should leverage and enhance currently funded Global Health projects at the institution, supported by NIH and other sponsors, as well as encourage new training opportunities, collaborations and research areas.

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, June 28, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to three pages, including the following: 1) listing of the five required grants in global health areas, 2) listing of the proposed partner institution(s) and their location(s) and why they were chosen to participate, 3) description of the proposed research education program, and 4) anticipated evaluation plans and benchmarks.


Up to $125,000 direct costs annually for a period of no more than three years.
