The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) requires a

contract to provide a model for the development, organization,

implementation, and evaluation of a comprehensive, interdisciplinary

training course on the molecular genetics of cardiovascular,

pulmonary, and hematologic diseases. Performance includes the

development and formulation of the course curriculum, format for the

course including any interactive elements, the scheduling,

announcement, and conduct of three offerings of the course, and

evaluation of the performance and impact of the course.  The course

will provide an intensive introduction to the use of molecular tools

to elucidate the genetic and non-genetic determinants of complex

diseases of interest to the NHLBI.  This course will assist the

participants to (1) understand the principles, methodologies, uses,

and implications of population and molecular genetic approaches in

investigating complex disease states; (2) evaluate critical clinical,

statistical, and genetic evidence concerning the causation and

prevention of complex cardiovascular, pulmonary and hematologic

diseases; (3) develop appropriate molecular genetic study designs;

(4) establish contact with internationally recognized investigators

in the areas of molecular genetics; and (5) form professional

relationships for future interdisciplinary collaborative research

efforts.  The period of performance is four years.

This is an announcement for a Request For Proposal (RFP).  The RFP

was issued on November 30, 1994, and proposals are due February 28,

1995.  One award is anticipated to be made about September 1, 1995.

Award of a contract for these services will be made only to an

offeror who is located in the United States of America.  Interested

organizations should request either a streamlined or full RFP

package.  If no selection is made, a streamlined version of the RFP

will be provided, which includes only the Statement of Work,

Deliverables and Reporting Requirements, and Technical Evaluation

Criteria.  After examination of these documents, any organization

interested in responding to this RFP must request the entire RFP in

writing or by FAX request (301-496-0075).  Telephone requests will

only be honored if confirmed by FAX or written request.  All requests

for RFP must cite RFP No. NHLBI-HV-95-2.
