INTERNAL DEADLINE: Thursday, September 16, 2010
The National Institutes of Health is requesting
applications for collaborative research training between institutions
in the United States and low-and-middle-income countries (LMIC), defined
by the World Bank classification system. The proposed institutional
research training program is expected to maintain and strengthen the
research capacity of the LMIC institutions, and to train in-country
experts to conduct research on chronic, non-communicable diseases and
disorders across the lifespan, with the definitive goal of implementing
evidence-based interventions relevant to their countries. U.S. applicants
should identify at least one scientist from each LMIC institution as
the main foreign collaborator for that organization. The principal investigator
and at least one of the key personnel listed in the application must
be designated as the principal investigator of at least one research
award from NIH or another source that is directly related to the research
training proposal from Hopkins and with at least 18 months of support
remaining at the time of the application. More specific information
about this program is available at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-10-257.html
Johns Hopkins can submit only one application for this program. An internal peer review to select the nominees will be conducted by the Office of the Assistant Provost for Research Administration.

list of required materials for the internal review:
Applicants who are interested in this program
should submit the above materials in one PDF document no later than
5 p.m. on Thursday, September 16, 2010, via e-mail to email@example.com.
