Update: The following update relating to this announcement has been issued:
Release Date: March 9, 2011
Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human
Development (NICHD), Fogarty International Center (FIC), and National
Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) intend to promote a new
initiative by publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit
applications for building capacity in research administration in eligible U.S.
domestic and international institutions.
This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects.
The FOA is expected to be published in the Spring of 2011 with an expected receipt date in Summer of 2011.
This FOA will utilize the G11 activity code. Details of the planned Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) are provided below.
This Notice encourages investigators from eligible non-research intensive domestic and foreign institutions of higher education in India and Sub-Saharan Africa, with an interest in building capacity in research administration at their institutions, to consider applying for this new FOA.
The Biomedical/Biobehavioral Research Administration Development (BRAD) Program (G11) will promote the establishment of rigorous and externally supported research by providing support for the training of research administrators and the strengthening/development of institutional research administration support infrastructures such as Offices of Sponsored Projects (OSP) or similar entities. The BRAD program will enable these infrastructures to provide administrative management of extramural grant awards, foster and facilitate ongoing research activities, and serve as the main organizational entity for the technical development and oversight of grant proposal submissions.
The BRAD Program
reflects the integration of the previously established domestic Extramural
Associates, Extramural Associates Development Award (EARDA), and International
Extramural Associates Development Award (IEARDA) programs.
APPLICATIONS ARE NOT BEING SOLICITED AT THIS TIME.
