Growing Great Ideas: Research Education Course in Product Development and Entrepreneurship for Life Science Researchers (R25)

Modified: May 3, 2016

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH.  The over-arching goal of this NIDA R25 program is to support educational activities that 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 solicits applications to develop and implement research education programs/short courses in entrepreneurship, innovation and product development specifically targeting bench life scientists. The institution proposing the course must be a research-intensive institution that has an established and well-recognized entrepreneurship teaching program with the demonstrated ability and willingness to adapt/develop and deliver the integrated curriculum for the academic life scientists, including scientists working in the field of drug abuse and addiction research. The short courses should primarily target independent academic neuroscience researchers and post-doctoral fellows interested in incorporating product (drug, device, diagnostics, research tool, mobile health application, etc.) development into their research programs with the goal of future commercialization.
