The NIDCD utilizes the F30 award for the research training of clinician-scientists pursuing the full-range of dual health professional/clinical (e.g., MD, DO, DDS, AuD, PsyD) and research (e.g., PhD, DSc) doctoral degrees in an integrated program, such that both degrees are conferred at the end of the period of doctoral study.  Health professional students who are pursuing a research doctoral degree independently of their clinical doctoral training (i.e., they are not enrolled in an integrated dual-degree program) should consider submitting a dissertation-stage F31 award application to the NIDCD.

The NIDCD requires that the sponsor hold NIH research grant support as a principal investigator in the area of the applicant's proposed research.

The NIDCD conducts the peer review of applications for this fellowship program within its Scientific Review Branch, based on an expedited review schedule of four-five months from submission to award. In order to maintain this schedule, it is imperative that applicants submitting applications that are determined, upon consultation with the Institute's research training program official noted above, to be within the scientific purview of the NIDCD concurrently send, at the time of submission to the NIH Center for Scientific Review, one of the application copies and all sets of appendix materials, if any, to:

FAX: (301) 402-6250
ATTN: NRSA predoctoral fellowship

Applications that are incomplete at the time of submission or are late will be deferred or returned.

The NIDCD expects that training in the responsible conduct of research be taken within the format of a semester-long course or seminar series, allowing for face-to-face discussion of material presented and assigned. Applicants who have not completed such training within the last three years should describe their plan to take another course or seminar series in the responsible conduct of research to update their knowledge in this dynamically changing domain.

Answers to common queries about NIDCD-specific fellowship policies and procedures are provided in the following document: http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/funding/types/fellowship_faqs.htm. Please contact the NIDCD program official noted above if you have any remaining questions.

Institute/Center Specific Information

Training opportunities supported under this announcement by the NIEHS are expected to focus on the environmental health sciences and be responsive to the mission of the NIEHS, which is to reduce the burden of human illness and dysfunction from environmental causes by understanding how environmental factors, individual susceptibility and age interrelate in the disease process.

Fellowship proposals should examine/address how an environmentally relevant toxicant or exposure is, or might be, involved in a human health endpoint such as a specific human disease, dysfunction, pathophysiologic condition, or relevant disease process.  Examples of environmentally relevant toxicants include industrial chemicals or manufacturing byproducts, metals, pesticides, herbicides, air pollutants and other inhaled toxicants, particulates or fibers, and fungal/bacterial or biologically derived toxins. Agents considered non-responsive to this announcement include, but are not limited to:  alcohol, drugs of abuse, pharmaceuticals, chemotherapeutic agents, radiation which is not a result of an ambient environmental exposure, and infectious or parasitic agents, except when agents are disease co-factors to an environmental toxicant exposure to produce the biological effect.

Fellowship proposals may include research in the Environmental Public Health field in which communities which are exposed to environmental exposures or have concerns about environmentally related diseases are actively engaged in all stages of research, dissemination and evaluation.  Examples of proposals in the Environmental Public Health field include investigating the health effects / impacts of environmental exposures that disproportionately burden low income or minority communities, investigating emerging environmental threats to communities, investigating exposure-related diseases that are of great concern to a community, and research and evaluation methodology to improve the theories and implementation strategies for working with communities to address their environmental health concerns. Fellows would learn how to conduct research using community based participatory methods, create outreach and education programs and translate research finding to a vast array of stakeholders.

The NINDS supports researchers who propose to conduct biomedical research in areas of high priority/public health significance to neurological sciences and who document that the proposed graduate program and proposed research project offer them an opportunity to develop expert research skills and knowledge leading to a research career in neurological sciences. Applicants for F30 awards are STRONGLY encouraged to contact an NINDS Program Director before they begin to prepare their application, as NINDS will consider only those applications that are designed to support the training and development of scientists with interests relevant to the mission of NINDS.

It is requested that applicants provide a timeline in all F30 submissions of their entire MD/PhD program, and specify when during this timeline medical school curricula and research will be pursued. This timeline should list the actual months and years (i.e. calendar months and years, not just “year 1, year 2, year 3”, etc.) of their program, with highlighted reference to the dates within that timeline for which F30 support is requested. A convenient place to put this information would be at the end of item 20, on a continuation page if necessary, on Form page 3 of the 416 application form.
