Bridges to the Doctorate (R25)

Modified: February 29, 2016

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH.  The over-arching goal of this NIBIB-NICHD R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs.To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on Courses for Skills Development. This FOA encourages applications from institutions that propose to establish new or to enhance existing team-based design courses or programs in undergraduate Biomedical Engineering departments or other degree-granting programs with Biomedical Engineering tracks/minors. This FOA mainly targets undergraduate students but may also include first-year graduate students. Courses and programs that address innovative and/or ground-breaking development, multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary education, the regulatory pathway and other issues related to the commercialization of medical devices, and clinical immersion are especially encouraged.

Only one application per institution (normally identified by having a unique DUNS number or NIH IPF number) is allowed. Please contact the Office for Research Development regarding the limited submission process.
