NIDDK Research Education Program Utilizing Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC) - Generated Resources (R25 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research education activities in the mission areas of the NIH. The overarching goal of this R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nations 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:
Research Experiences
Courses for Skills Development
This FOA solicits applications to establish research programs for qualified graduate students, post-doctoral trainees, medial residents, engineers, and clinical fellows to engage in neuroscience research experiences relevant to the mission of NIDDK and its partnership with the Common Fund program, Stimulating Peripheral Activity to Relieve Conditions (SPARC). The intent is to leverage this partnership to provide resources for short-term research training experiences that would necessarily use SPARC-generated resources (datasets/maps/models) as the foundation for the research experience in conjunction with didactic training that may be combined with hands-on computational or wet lab projects. The goal is that the research experiences will be impactful and ideally develop new skills and produce new knowledge that could sustain future NIDDK-funded research careers
