Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement to Support Institutional Translational Research Training Programs (T32)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke intends to publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to solicit applications for institutional training programs in translational research. These programs will support advanced predoctoral students (years 3-4 of graduate school), postdoctoral fellows and fellowship-stage clinicians. Advancing basic discoveries to clinical application (“bench to bedside”) requires a close collaboration between basic scientists and clinical investigators as well as an understanding of the experimental and regulatory issues that arise in moving from basic discovery to clinical applicability. The goal of this FOA is to stimulate the creation of translational training programs in neuroscience that will equip trainees with research expertise and an understanding of the principles and practices involved in translating basic research findings to clinical therapies, technologies and devices. The program is intended to help expand the community of basic and clinical researchers working in teams to conduct basic, disease-relevant research with an understanding of the requirements to achieve clinical applicability. This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop and design programmatic content that will form a cohesive approach to translational research training.  This notice is intended to support a limited number of exceptional training programs and will therefore be available for only a limited period of time. Under a different FOA (See NOT-NS-18-085), NINDS will continue to accept applications that address basic, clinical, translational or a combination of approaches in any area of research across the NINDS mission. Both of these FOAs are expected to be published in the Fall of 2018.  Applications to both FOAs will be accepted once per year, with an expected first application due date of May 25, 2019. This FOA will utilize the T32 activity code.
