Summary:  The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research educational activities that complement other formal training programs in the mission areas of the NIH Institutes and Centers. The over-arching goals of the NIH R25 program are to: (1) complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation's biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs; (2) enhance the diversity of the biomedical, behavioral and clinical research workforce; (3) help recruit individuals with specific specialty or disciplinary backgrounds to research careers in biomedical, behavioral and clinical sciences; and (4) foster a better understanding of biomedical, behavioral and clinical research and its implications.

 

The over-arching goal of this National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) Bridges to Doctorate R25 program is to support educational activities that    enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce.     To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on:

 

Courses for Skills Development: For example, advanced courses in a specific discipline or research area, clinical procedures for research, or specialized research techniques.

 

Research Experiences: For example, for graduate students: to provide research experiences and related training not available through formal NIH training mechanisms.
