Expiration Date: May 16, 2020
The National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) and the National Human Genome Research Institute are interested in developing a research workforce that has the content expertise and skills to carry out significant genomics studies in the context of nursing research. To support this goal, NINR and NHGRI announce the availability of funds for Administrative Supplements to NINR-funded predoctoral T32 training grant awards with a focus on genomics. These funds are intended to support the training of nurse researchers in genomics for one or two years. Collaboration between NINR and NHGRI T32 training grants is encouraged.
Research training programs will incorporate didactic, research, and career development elements to prepare individuals for careers that will have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the Nation. The trainees must have a training team that includes a genomics researcher.
Trainees funded under this supplement will be expected to attend the NHGRI Research Training and Career Development Annual Meeting. Trainees are expected to present their research at the annual meeting.
Application budgets are limited to $125,000 total costs per year and must reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. Funds from this supplement are intended to be used for support of up to two additional trainee slots including other expenses directly related to their training activity for one or two years. NINR anticipates making two awards contingent upon funds available and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.
Institutions must request travel funds for trainees to attend the NHGRI Research Training and Career Development Annual Meeting. These expenses must not duplicate items generally available at the applicant institution.
The supplement project and budget periods are limited to the remaining active budget period that started in FY20 for the existing parent award. Funds from this supplement must be expended during the project and budget periods.
Applicants must have an NINR-funded predoctoral T32 training grant that will be active on June 30, 2021. Applicants with pending competing applications for parent grant awards are not eligible. To be eligible, the parent award must be active (i.e. not be in an extension period), and the activities proposed in the supplement must be accomplished within the remaining active budget period that started in FY20 for the existing parent award. The earliest anticipated start date is July 1, 2020.
An applicant institution (normally identified by having a unique DUNS number or NIH IPF) may only submit one application and the request for supplementary funds must be submitted by the institution on behalf of the PD(s)/PI(s).
NIH staff will consider whether the budget and the requested period of support are fully justified and reasonable in relation to the proposed training.
Eligible investigators are strongly encouraged to discuss potential requests before submitting applications.
