Purpose

This Notice from the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) provides corrected information for PAR-12-085, NIBIB Research Education Programs for Residents and Clinical Fellows, regarding

(1)  The number of applications allowed per applicant organization—one application is allowed per applicant organization.

(2)  Clarification of total number of participants in each funded year—two participants are allowed per year per applicant organization, and

(3)  Contact information for submission of Letters of Intent.

The replacement text for the FOA is as follows

Part 1. Overview Information

Number of Applications

Only one application per institution is allowed, as defined in Section III. 3. Additional Information on Eligibility.

Part 2. Full Text of Announcement

Section II. Award Information

Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards

Because the nature and scope of the proposed research education program will vary from application to application, it is anticipated that the size and duration of each award may vary. Although the financial plans of the NIBIB provide support for this program, awards pursuant to this funding opportunity are contingent upon the availability of funds and the submission of a sufficient number of meritorious applications.

Base Support for Research Education Programs (Year 1). Although the size of the award may vary among research education programs,  applications may not request annual direct costs of more than $70,000 per participant per year. Grants submitted in response to this FOA will support salary plus fringe benefits for a minimum of 9 person-months (equivalent to 75% of full-time professional effort)  effort for a period of 12 months per participant. Grants may also request up to $10,000 for research-related expenses and up to $1,000 for travel to appropriate scientific meetings per participant per year. Programs may request support for up to two participants during the first year. Once a primary grant has been awarded, administrative supplement requests for participant support may be submitted (see below).

Supplemental Support Requests to request support for up to two participants per year may be made as administrative supplements as outline in Section IV. No more than two participants will be supported during any one year.

Section III. Eligibility Information

3. Additional Information on Eligibility

Number of Applications

Only one application per institution (normally identified by having a unique DUNS number or NIH IPF number) is allowed.

Eligible Individuals (Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s))

Any individual(s) with the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed research as the Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s) (PD(s)/PI(s)) is invited to work with his/her organization to develop an application for support. Individuals from diverse backgrounds, including underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and women are always encouraged to apply for NIH support.

For institutions/organizations proposing multiple PD(s)/PI(s), visit the Multiple Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s) Policy and submission details in the Senior/Key Person Profile (Expanded) Component of the SF 424 (R&R) Application Guide.

The PD(s)/PI(s) should be an established investigator in the scientific area in which the application is targeted and capable of providing both administrative and scientific leadership to the development and implementation of the proposed program. The PD(s)/PI(s) must have clearly demonstrated, outstanding credentials in education and research training, and have a strong recent history of external funding. The PD(s)/PI(s) will be expected to monitor and assess the program and submit all documents and reports as required.

The proposed PD(s)/PI(s) must hold a health professional degree (e.g., MD, or equivalent) and have a faculty appointment in a Radiology Department.  Exceptions to these requirements, although not anticipated, must be approved in advance in writing by the NIBIB Director of Interdisciplinary Training.  Applications with PD(s)/PI(s) who not have a health professional degree (e.g., MD, or equivalent) or do not have a faculty appointment in a Radiology Department are ineligible for this FOA and will not undergo peer review.

If the sponsoring institution is a hospital affiliated with a medical school, the PD(s)/PI(s) in addition to having a faculty appointment in the Radiology department of the medical school,  must also have an appointment at the sponsoring institution.  Applications from hospitals affiliated with medical schools whose PD(s)/PI(s) do not have appointments in the sponsoring institution will not undergo peer review. 

The parent application from each institution must be based in the Radiology Department. Additional NIBIB-relevant residency programs including, but not limited to, cardiology, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, or surgery, at a single institution are encouraged to participate in the parent Radiology-based application.

Section IV. Application and Submission Information

2. Content and Form of Application Submission

Letter of Intent

By the date listed in Part 1. Overview Information, prospective applicants are asked to submit a letter of intent that includes the following information:

Descriptive title of proposed research

Name, address, and telephone number of the PD(s)/PI(s)
