NIH Director’s Biomedical Research Workforce Innovation Award: Broadening Experiences in Scientific Training (BEST) (DP7)
NIH Director’s Biomedical Research Workforce Innovation Award
MUSC limited to ONE application.
The purpose of this FOA is to seek out, identify and support bold and innovative approaches designed to broaden graduate and postdoctoral training, such that training programs reflect the range of career options that Ph.D. graduate students and postdoctoral (regardless of funding source) pursue and that are required for a robust biomedical, behavioral, social and clinical research enterprise.
Collaborations with non-academic partners are encouraged to ensure that experts from a broad spectrum of research-intensive and research-related careers contribute to coursework, rotations, internships or other forms of exposure. This program will establish a new paradigm for graduate and postdoctoral training; awardee institutions will work together to define needs and share best practices.
The funding opportunity is limited to ONE proposal. Interested applicants should contact Wanda Hutto at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than FEBRUARY 4, 2014. Should the number of potential proposals exceed the amount allowed, ORD will require an internal review selection process.
