NIH Funding Opportunity: Research that Helps Cultivate Future Biomedical and Behavioral Scientists

Deadline: October 24, 2012, 5:00 PM (applicant organization’s local time)

The National Institutes of Health announced a research project grant on Research to Understand and Inform Interventions that Promote the Research Careers of Students in Biomedical and Behavioral Sciences.

This grant, issued by NIH’s National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), supports research to test assumptions and hypotheses on social and behavioral factors that might aid potential interventions in increasing the number of students who are interested, motivated, and prepared to pursue biomedical and behavioral research careers.

In particular, NIGMS is interested in interventions that target students from backgrounds underrepresented in these fields, but the proposed research is not restricted to students from such backgrounds. The NIH encourages comparative research that examines the experience of all groups in order to inform the tailoring of interventions to students from underrepresented backgrounds.
