Release Date:  July 2, 2002

NOTICE:  NOT-DE-02-002 (also see PAR-00-116)

Application Receipt Date:  September 10, 2002

This addendum is to inform potential applicants of the NIDCR National 
Research Service Award Institutional Research Training Grants ("comprehensive 
T32 programs") of the following:

1) NIDCR will continue the "comprehensive" T32 program, where "comprehensive" 
refers to the different types of trainees and not the number of disciplines 
in which training is offered.  Programs may offer a broad breadth of 
disciplines or a more focused set of training opportunities. However, 
regardless of the number of disciplines in which training is offered, the 
training opportunities must be interdisciplinary and linkage with schools of 
medicine, public health, engineering or arts and sciences is encouraged.

The following additional components are required in all applications for 
comprehensive T32 programs:

o  Training must be interdisciplinary in nature; linkage (appropriate to the 
type of training 
offered) with schools of medicine, public health, engineering or arts and 
sciences are strongly encouraged to ensure a critical mass of mentors 
offering training in cutting edge science. 
o  Programs must contain positions for postdoctoral training of dentists 
(either leading to the PhD, Masters in Clinical Research, or just additional 
research training with no terminal degree).
o  Programs must contain summer training positions for dental students.
o  Programs are encouraged to accept or accommodate dental students from 
institutions that do not have a T35 award; the costs of travel and housing 
are to be shared by the home and grantee institution.
o The NIDCR will entertain a request from a T32 awardee for supplemental 
slots for dental students from an outside institution to participate in a 
summer short-term research training program if the awardee does not have 
available positions.
o  Applicants may request training positions for predoctoral trainees 
(persons without professional degrees working towards the Ph.D.); traditional 
postdoctoral trainees (Ph.D.'s seeking additional research training); and 
individuals interested in pursuing the dental degree and Ph.D. degrees in an 
integrated program. 

2) For Short-Term Research Training Grants (T35 mechanism):

o Only institutions with a comprehensive T32 will be eligible for short-term 
training programs (as part of the overall T32).   There will be no more T35 
awards as stand alone projects. 

3) At the time of submitting the original application to the Center for 
Scientific Review, two additional copies of the application, including two 
copies of any appendices, must be sent to:

Dr. George Hausch
Acting Director
Division of Extramural Activities
National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research
Building 45, Room 4AN-44F
Bethesda, Maryland  20892-6402
