NIDA Research Education Program for Clinical Researchers and Clinicians (R25)

Modified: May 10, 2016

NIDA Research Education Program for Clinical Researchers and Clinicians (R25)

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 complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. This FOA is intended to support research education activities that enhance the knowledge of substance abuse and addiction research. The program is intended for those in clinically focused careers and/or those training for careers as clinicians/service providers, clinical researchers or optimally a combination of the two. This mechanism may not be used for support of non-research-related clinical training.

To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on:

  • Courses for Skills Development: Activities may include advanced courses in a specific discipline or research area, clinical procedures for research, neuroethics in clinical research, specialized research techniques, or other topics that would complement and enhance the research experiences proposed. Additionally, careeer development seminars and workshops such as grant writing, manuscript preparation and building a successful career path are encouraged.
  • Research Experiences: Activities include hands-on exposure to research for undergraduate students and research experiences for graduate and medical students, postdoctorates, and/or early career faculty.  The nature of research experiences should be tailored to the needs and career level of participants. It is expected that mentoring will be provided in conjunction with planned research experiences.    

The proposed research education programs must include both courses for skills development and research experiences. However, primary emphasis should be given to research experiences.  Courses for skills development should be proposed in conjunction with research experiences.
