Entry-Level Modules (ELM) for Training the Genomics Research Workforce (R25-Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
National Institutes of Health
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 diverse workforce, which includes individuals from backgrounds that are not well represented in biomedical research (see NIH Interest in Diversity: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-20-031.html), 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 Courses for Skills Development. The purpose of this PAR is twofold: 1) develop, implement, and evaluate modules of genomics-related curriculum for the diverse entry-level biomedical research workforce by supporting lead sites teamed with partner sites, such as community, technical, or tribal colleges; and 2) support and facilitate opportunities for the entry-level research workforce to enhance diversity in genomics. The training modules will be made freely available, at no cost to the broader community.
