PURPOSE

The National Institute on Aging (NIA), National Institute of Child Health and 
Human Development (NICHD), National Institute on Deafness and Other 
Communication Disorders (NIDCD), National Institute of Dental and 
Craniofacial Research (NIDCR), National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), 
National Eye Institute (NEI), National Institute of General Medical Sciences 
(NIGMS), National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), National Institute of 
Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and National Institute of Nursing 
Research (NINR) are continuing joint sponsorship of a predoctoral research 
training program in the neurosciences.  The aim of the program is to encourage 
and support broad, early-stage (pre-thesis) training in the neurosciences by 
offering institutions a single comprehensive training grant.  It is expected 
that these training programs will contribute to basic and disease-related 
neuroscience research that is relevant to the participating NIH Institutes.

HEALTHY PEOPLE 2010

The Public Health Service (PHS) is committed to achieving the health promotion 
and disease prevention objectives of "Healthy People 2010," a PHS led national 
activity for setting priority areas.  This Program Announcement (PA), JOINTLY 
SPONSORED NIH PREDOCTORAL TRAINING PROGRAM IN THE NEUROSCIENCES, is related to 
one or more of the priority areas.  Potential applicants may obtain a copy of 
"Healthy People 2010" at http://www.health.gov/healthypeople/. 

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS

Applications may be submitted by domestic, non-profit, private or public 
institutions with organized predoctoral programs in the health sciences leading 
to doctoral degrees.  Racial/ethnic minority individuals, women, and persons 
with disabilities are encouraged to apply as principal investigators.  All of 
the eligibility requirements, rules and regulations of the National Research 
Service Award (NRSA) programs as articulated in "NIH National Research Service 
Award Institutional Research Training Grants"(NIH Guide, June 1, 2000, PA 
NUMBER: PA-00-103, available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-
00-103.html apply to this program.  

MECHANISM OF SUPPORT
 
This PA will use the NRSA Institutional Research Training Grants (T32) 
mechanism. The number of grants awarded will depend on funds available. Awards 
will be made for a period of up to five years, and are renewable. The training 
grant will support predoctoral level stipends and other training costs 
according to the current NRSA guidelines, "NIH National Research Service Award 
Institutional Research Training Grants (NIH Guide, June 1, 2000, PA NUMBER:PA-
00-103, available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-
103.html) and "National Research Service Award (NRSA) Stipend Increase and 
other budgetary changes effective for Fiscal Year 2001" (NIH GUIDE NOTICE, 
January 8, 2001, available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-
files/NOT-OD-01-011.html).  

RESEARCH TRAINING PROGRAM CONSIDERATIONS

Ten NIH Institutes (listed above) are continuing joint sponsorship of a 
predoctoral research training program in the neurosciences.  The aim of this
program is to encourage and support broad, early-stage training in the 
neurosciences by offering institutions a single comprehensive training grant.  
Support through the program is focused on the early years of training, 
typically the first and second years, before full-time thesis research is 
started.  Trainees are expected to be participants in a formal predoctoral 
curriculum offering broad and fundamental training in the neurosciences.  
Such training would include taking core courses, laboratory rotations and 
multidisciplinary courses, but not full time thesis research.

Institutions that presently have multiple training grants supporting 
predoctoral trainees in the neurosciences are strongly encouraged to 
consolidate their predoctoral training positions into a single training grant 
jointly sponsored by the participating NIH Institutes of this program 
announcement. It is of special importance that all applicants describe the plan 
to consolidate neuroscience training positions from existing predoctoral 
training grants supported by the NIH Institutes participating in this PA.  All 
relevant, available training grants should be considered and some rationale 
presented if particular training grants are not going to be included in the 
consolidation plan. Applications are also accepted from institutions that do 
not have current NIH training grant support and that provide neuroscience 
training. Depending on the policies of the awarding NIH Institute, other 
training grants at the applicant institution may continue to support 
predoctoral trainees involved in thesis research and postdoctoral fellows 
(applicants are strongly encouraged to contact specific NIH Institute staff 
listed under INQUIRIES prior to preparing and submitting an application).  The 
number of trainee positions requested must be justified in terms of the 
available pool of eligible trainees, the training faculty, the course 
offerings, etc., and the proposed consolidation of existing training positions. 
In addition, funds to support trainee travel to attend scientific meetings 
should not exceed $500/year per trainee.  

In general, extant NIH Institutional NRSA training predoctoral neuroscience 
programs submitting a competing renewal application (Type 2) may increase the 
number of their full-time training positions (FTTPs) only by consolidation of 
any existing programs not included in the current program.  However, if a 
compelling justification is provided, applicants may request a modest increment 
in their number of FTTPs.  In such circumstances, applicants are strongly 
encouraged to contact the appropriate NIH program staff contact listed under 
INQUIRIES in advance of submitting an application.  

Extant JOINTLY SPONSORED NIH PREDOCTORAL TRAINING PROGRAM IN THE NEUROSCIENCES
must include the following data about former trainees with their Type 2 
application: a) NIH funding sources, if any, for the support of dissertation 
research, b) names of dissertation advisors/mentors, and c) dissertation 
titles.

The Program Directors of the training grants will be asked to attend a one-day 
workshop in the Washington DC area once every two years. Travel funds (travel 
plus one day per diem) for the Program Director to attend this event, twice 
during the five year period of the grant, may be included in the budget of the 
application.  At these workshops, Program Directors will be asked to report on 
successes or problems in their training programs, and NIH staff will provide 
briefings on new training and career development opportunities in the 
participating NIH Institutes.
 
It is expected that the training programs will facilitate training students in 
basic and disease-related neuroscience research that is relevant to the 
participating NIH Institutes.  Applicants should ensure that there are ongoing 
research programs available to trainees in areas relevant to the missions of 
one or more of the sponsoring NIH Institutes.  It is also important that the 
administration of the applicant institution as well as all participating 
academic units and departments indicate within the application their 
willingness to support the training goals of the program.

INCLUSION OF WOMEN AND MINORITIES IN RESEARCH INVOLVING HUMAN SUBJECTS

It is the policy of the NIH that women and members of minority groups and their 
subpopulations must be included in all NIH supported biomedical and behavioral 
research involving human subjects, unless a clear and compelling rationale and 
justification are provided that inclusion is inappropriate with respect to the 
health of the subjects or the purpose of the research.  This policy results 
from the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993 (Section 492B of Public Law 103-43).  

All investigators proposing research involving human subjects should read the 
UPDATED "NIH Guidelines for Inclusion of Women and Minorities as Subjects in 
Clinical Research," published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts on 
August 2, 2000 (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-00-
048.html); a complete copy of the updated Guidelines are available at  
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/women_min/guidelines_update.htm:  The 
revisions relate to NIH defined Phase III clinical trials and require: a) all 
applications or proposals and/or protocols to provide a description of plans to 
conduct analyses, as appropriate, to address differences by sex/gender and/or 
racial/ethnic groups, including subgroups if applicable; and b) all 
investigators to report accrual, and to conduct and report analyses, as 
appropriate, by sex/gender and/or racial/ethnic group differences.

INCLUSION OF CHILDREN AS PARTICIPANTS IN RESEARCH INVOLVING HUMAN SUBJECTS

It is the policy of NIH that children (i.e., individuals under the age of 21) 
must be included in all human subjects research, conducted or supported by the 
NIH, unless there are scientific and ethical reasons not to include them.  This 
policy applies to all initial (Type 1) applications submitted for receipt dates 
after October 1, 1998. 

All investigators proposing research involving human subjects should read the 
"NIH Policy and Guidelines on the Inclusion of Children as Participants in 
Research Involving Human Subjects " that was published in the NIH Guide for 
Grants and Contracts, March 6, 1998 and is available at the following URL 
address: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not98-024.html. 

Investigators also may obtain copies of these policies from the program staff 
listed under INQUIRIES.  Program staff may also provide additional relevant 
information concerning the policy.

REQUIRED EDUCATION ON THE PROTECTION OF HUMAN SUBJECT PARTICIPANTS

NIH policy requires education on the protection of human subject participants 
for all investigators submitting NIH proposals for research involving human 
subjects.  This policy announcement is found in the NIH Guide for Grants and 
Contracts Announcement dated June 5, 2000, at the following website: 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-00-039.html.


URLS IN NIH GRANT APPLICATIONS OR APPENDICES

All applications and proposals for NIH funding must be self-contained within 
specified page limitations.  Unless otherwise specified in an NIH solicitation, 
internet addresses (URLs) should not be used to provide information necessary 
to the review because reviewers are under no obligation to view the Internet 
sites.  Reviewers are cautioned that their anonymity may be compromised when 
they directly access an Internet site.

PUBLIC ACCESS TO RESEARCH DATA THROUGH THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-110 has been revised to 
provide public access to research data through the Freedom of Information Act 
(FOIA) under some circumstances.  Data that are (1) first produced in a project 
that is supported in whole or in part with Federal funds and (2) cited publicly 
and officially by a Federal agency in support of an action that has the force 
and effect of law (i.e., a regulation) may be accessed through FOIA.  It is 
important for applicants to understand the basic scope of this amendment.  NIH 
has provided guidance at:
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/policy/a110/a110_guidance_dec1999.htm 

Applicants may wish to place data collected under this PA in a public archive, 
which can provide protections for the data and manage the distribution for an 
indefinite period of time.  If so, the application should include a description 
of the archiving plan in the study design and include information about this in 
the budget justification section of the application. In addition, applicants 
should think about how to structure informed consent statements and other human 
subjects procedures given the potential for wider use of data collected under 
this award.

LETTER OF INTENT
 
Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to submit by April 5 a 
letter of intent that includes a descriptive title of the proposed training 
program, the name, address, and telephone number of the Program Director, the 
identities of other key faculty and participating departments, and the number 
and title of this PA. Although a letter of intent is not required, is not 
binding, and does not enter into the review of a subsequent application, the 
information that it contains allows NIH staff to estimate the potential review 
workload and plan the review.  The letter of intent is to be sent to Dr. 
Deborah Henken at the address listed under INQUIRIES.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES
 
The PHS 398 research grant application instructions and forms (rev. 5/2001) at 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/funding/phs398/phs398.html must be used in 
applying for these grants and will be accepted at the standard application 
deadlines (http://grants.nih.gov/grants/dates.htm) as indicated in the 
application kit.  This version of the PHS 398 is available in an interactive, 
searchable format.  For further assistance contact GrantsInfo, Telephone 
301/435-0714, Email: GrantsInfo@nih.gov.

It is of special importance that applicants provide a statement in the 
application describing the plan to consolidate neuroscience training positions 
from any existing predoctoral training grants that are supported by the NIH 
Institutes participating in this PA.  All relevant, available training grants 
should be considered and strong, compelling rationale presented if particular 
training grants are not going to be included in the consolidation plan.  

Applicants planning to submit a new (type 1), competing continuation (type 2), 
competing supplement, or any amended/revised version of the preceding grant 
application types requesting $500,000 or more in direct costs for any year are 
advised that he or she must contact the Institute or Center (IC) program staff 
before submitting the application, i.e, as plans for the study are being 
developed.  Furthermore, the applicant must obtain agreement from the IC staff 
that the IC will accept the application for consideration for award.  Finally, 
the applicant must identify, in a cover letter sent with the application, the 
staff member and Institute or Center who agreed to accept assignment of the 
application.  

This policy requires an applicant to obtain agreement for acceptance of both 
any such application and any such subsequent amendment.  Refer to the NIH Guide 
for Grants and Contracts, March 20, 1998 at 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not98-030.html 

Supplemental application instructions should be requested from the program 
staff listed under INQUIRIES.  The title and number of the program announcement 
must be typed on line 2 of the face page of the application form and the YES 
box must be marked.  

Submit a signed, typewritten original of the application, including the 
Checklist and five signed photocopies in one package to:

CENTER FOR SCIENTIFIC REVIEW
NATIONAL INSTITUTES OF HEALTH
6701 ROCKLEDGE DRIVE, ROOM 1040, MSC 7710
BETHESDA, MD  20892-7710
BETHESDA, MD  20817 (for express/courier service)

REVIEW CONSIDERATIONS

All Applications in response to this program announcement will be assigned to 
one of the sponsoring Institutes.  As part of the initial merit review, all 
applications will receive a written critique and undergo a process in which 
only those applications deemed to have the highest scientific merit, generally 
the top half of applications under review, will be discussed, assigned a 
priority score, and receive a second level review by the Institute National 
Advisory Board or Council.

Review Criteria

Applications will be evaluated according to the general review criteria 
outlined in the "NIH National Research Service Award Institutional Research 
Training Grants (NIH Guide, June 1, 2000, PA NUMBER: PA-00-103, available at 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-103.html.  Review criteria 
specific to this initiative include: 1) whether the training program provides 
broad-based, fundamental, early-stage training in neuroscience at the 
Institution; 2) the potential impact of the proposed training grant on 
neuroscience training at the Institution; 3) whether appropriate expertise is 
available in the neuroscience community at the Institution; and 4) the extent 
of participation of all appropriate faculty and departments at the Institution 
in the neuroscience training program.  

Reviewers will first determine the quality of the training program and then 
consider whether the requested number of trainee positions is appropriate for 
the number of high quality, eligible first/second year trainees likely to be 
accepted into the program.  Comments on the appropriateness of the requested 
number of slots will appear as a budget note or an administrative note.

ADDITIONAL REVIEW CONSIDERATIONS

Consolidation Plan:

Consolidation of NIH-funded predoctoral training in the neurosciences at an 
Institution into a single training grant is strongly encouraged.  The 
consolidation plan for combining training positions (or a justification to not 
consolidate positions) from other NIH-funded neuroscience related training 
grants at the Institution should be fully explained in the application.  If 
there is not going to be any consolidation, please explain why.  The 
consolidation plans and justifications (if any) will be considered in relation 
to the participation of other departments in the training program.  For 
example, are there plans to consolidate trainee positions from existing NIH-
funded training grants that participating faculty use to train students in the 
neurosciences?  Reviewer comments on the consolidation plan (if any) will 
appear in an administrative note.  This information will not be factored into 
the numerical score but will be evaluated by the reviewers and will be 
considered in the budget recommendation.  

Minority Recruitment Plan: 

The NIH remains committed to increasing the participation of individuals from 
underrepresented minority groups in biomedical and behavioral research.  As 
first announced in 1989, all competing applications for institutional NRSA 
research training grants must include a specific plan to recruit and retain 
underrepresented minorities in the training program.  In addition, all 
competing continuation applications must include a report on the recruitment 
and retention of underrepresented minorities during the previous award period.  
If an application is received without a plan or without a report on the 
previous award period, the application will be considered incomplete and will 
be returned to the applicant without review.  Additional information on this 
requirement was published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts, Volume 22, 
Number 25, July 16, 1993 (see 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not93-188.html). 

Training in the Responsible Conduct of Research: 

Every predoctoral and postdoctoral NRSA trainee supported by an institutional 
research training grant must receive instruction in the responsible conduct of 
research.  (For more information on this provision, see the NIH Guide for 
Grants and Contracts, Announcement of Final PHS Policy on Instruction in the 
Responsible Conduct of Research, December 5, 2000, Notice OD-01-007, see 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-01-007.html).   
Applications must include a description of a program to provide formal or 
informal instruction in scientific integrity or the responsible conduct of 
research.  Applications without plans for instruction in the responsible 
conduct of research will be considered incomplete and may be returned to the 
applicant without review. 

o Although the NIH does not establish specific curricula or formal 
requirements, all programs are encouraged to consider instruction in the 
following areas: conflict of interest, responsible authorship, policies for 
handling misconduct, policies regarding the use of human and animal subjects, 
and data management. Within the context of training in scientific integrity it 
is also beneficial to discuss the mutual responsibilities of the institution 
and the graduate students or postdoctorates appointed to the program.

o Plans must address the subject matter of the instruction, the format of the 
instruction, the degree of faculty participation, trainee attendance, and the 
frequency of instruction.

o The rationale for the proposed plan of instruction must be provided.

o Program reports on the type of instruction provided, topics covered, and 
other relevant information, such as attendance by trainees and faculty 
participation, must be included in future competing continuation and 
noncompeting applications. The NIH encourages institutions to provide 
instruction in the responsible conduct of research to all graduate students, 
postdoctorates, and research staff regardless of their source of support.

The NIH special emphasis panel will assess the applicant's plans on the basis 
of the appropriateness of topics, format, amount and nature of faculty 
participation, and the frequency and duration of instruction.

The plans for minority recruitment and responsible conduct will be discussed 
after the overall determination of merit, so that the review panel's evaluation 
of the plans will not be a factor in the determination of the priority score.  
Plans will be judged as acceptable or unacceptable.  The acceptability of the 
plan will be described in an administrative note on the summary statement. 
Regardless of the priority score, applications with unacceptable plans will not 
be funded until the applicant provides a revised, acceptable plan.  Staff from 
the NIH awarding component, in conjunction with the Trans-NIH T32 Jointly 
Sponsored Training Committee, will judge the acceptability of the revised plan. 
Following initial review, the appropriate NIH Institute or center council, 
board, or other advisory group also reviews applications.  These advisory 
groups will consider, in addition to the assessment of the scientific and 
educational merit of the research training grant application, the initial 
review group's comments on the recruitment of individuals from underrepresented 
minority groups into the research training program and the plan for instruction 
in the responsible conduct of research.

AUTHORITY AND REGULATIONS
 
NRSA Institutional Research Training Grants are made under the authority of 
Section 487 of the Public Health Service Act as amended (42 USC 288).  Title 
42 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 66, is applicable to this 
program.  This program is also described under the following numbers in the 
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance: 93.121, 93.172, 93.173, 93.272, 
93.278, 93.282, 93.306, 93.361, 93.398, 93.821, 93.837-93.839, 93.846-93.849, 
93.853-93.856, 93.859, 93.862-93.868, 93.871, 93.880, 93.894, and 93.929.  
Awards are made under authorization of the Public Health Service Act, Title 
IV, Part A (Public Law 78-410, as amended by Public Law 99-158, 42 USC 241 
and 285) and administered under PHS grants policies and Federal Regulations 
42 CFR 52 and 45 CFR Part 74.  This program is not subject to the 
intergovernmental review requirements of Executive Order 12372 or Health 
Systems Agency review.  Awards will be administered under PHS policy as 
stated in the NIH Grants Policy Statement (March 1, 2001).
 
PHS strongly encourages all grant and contract recipients to provide a smoke-
free workplace and promote the non-use of all tobacco products.  In addition, 
Public Law 103-227, the Pro-Children Act of 1994, prohibits smoking in 
certain facilities (or in some cases, any portion of a facility) in which 
regular or routine education, library, day care, health care or early 
childhood development services are provided to children.  This is consistent 
with the PHS mission to protect and advance the physical and mental health of 
the American people.
