RFA-NS-21-033 - Materials to Enhance Training in Experimental Rigor (METER) (UE5 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) will be hosting an informational webinar on August 17, 2021 from 1PM – 2PM (Eastern Time) for all potential applicants interested in these companion Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs):
These two FOAs together aim to facilitate teaching of fundamental principles of rigorous biomedical research by developing a new online educational resource for use by a broad range of researchers in an array of learning environments. CENTER will support the establishment of a center to build, evaluate, and disseminate a user-friendly, harmonized, and openly accessible educational resource to promote awareness, understanding, and utilization of the principles of rigorous biomedical research. METER will support the compilation and refinement of the core scholarly content of educational units within this online resource.
The webinar will provide a brief overview of the initiative and an opportunity for potential applicants to ask questions. Potential applicants are encouraged to visit the webpage for the initiative (https://www.ninds.nih.gov/Current-Research/Trans-Agency-Activities/Rigor-Transparency/EducationalResource) to view frequently asked questions (FAQs), register for the webinar, and access additional information they may find helpful. Webinar registrants may also submit questions in advance of the webinar through the registration form, and these questions may be addressed during the webinar. We request that participants carefully review the funding opportunities and the FAQs for this initiative prior to submitting a question for the webinar. Participation in the webinar is optional and is not required for the submission of an application.
The webinar will be hosted through Zoom.
