PAR-19-215 - Team-Based Design in Biomedical Engineering Education (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)
The purpose of this Notice is to indicate the intent for the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering to re-issue the following Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) before the next estimated receipt date of May 30, 2022.
The reissued FOA will continue to solicit new, renewal, resubmission and revision applications.
The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The over-arching goal of this NIBIB R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on Courses for Skills Development.
This FOA seeks to support programs that include innovative approaches to enhance biomedical engineering design education to ensure a future workforce that can meet the nation’s needs in biomedical research and healthcare technologies.
Applications are encouraged from institutions that propose to establish new or to enhance existing team-based design courses or programs in undergraduate biomedical engineering departments or other degree-granting programs with biomedical engineering tracks/minors. This FOA targets the education of undergraduate biomedical engineering/bioengineering students in a team-based environment.
The number of awards is contingent upon NIH appropriations and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.
Direct costs of up to $20,000 per year may be requested. Programs that include a clinical immersion program outside the academic year and lasting 6 to 10 weeks may request an additional $20,000 to cover participant costs, yielding a total of $40,000 in direct costs.
Applications are not being solicited at this time.
