The overall goal of the NIH Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program (PREP) is to increase the number of competitively trained underrepresented minority students who enroll in and eventually complete biomedical sciences Ph.D. programs. In addition, NIH hopes to develop a cohort who will eventually become the scientists who conduct research on cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, respiratory diseases, HIV and other STDs, substance abuse, and other areas that address reducing health disparities. The applicant institution should define the goals and specific measurable objectives of its proposed program and how meeting those institutional goals and objectives will fulfill the objectives of this program announcement. The application should make clear how each of the proposed programmatic activities will contribute to meeting the scholars' needs and the institution's stated goals and specific measurable objectives. The application should provide a plan to evaluate whether the specific measurable objectives, as stated in the application, have been met and how those data obtained will be analyzed.

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 4:00 pm Friday, October 26, 2007. Letters of intent should include a 3-page summary which defines the goals and specific measurable objectives of the proposed program and how meeting those institutional goals and objectives will fulfill the objectives of this program.
