Research Training Grants
This program supports HIV/AIDS-related research training to strengthen the capacity of institutions in low- and middle-income countries to conduct multi-disciplinary biomedical and behavioral research to address the AIDS epidemic in their country. Grants are awarded to U.S. institutions with strong HIV-related research training experience and with HIV-related research collaborations with institutions in low- and middle-income countries. These institutions--in partnership with their foreign collaborating institutions--identify health scientists, clinicians, and allied health workers from the foreign countries to participate in their joint research training programs. Individuals from foreign nations who wish to become trainees must apply to the project director of an awarded grant. Beginning in 2007, foreign institutions in low- and middle-income countries are eligible to apply for two-year planning grants.
This program addresses the research needs related to the growing burden of morbidity and mortality in the developing world due to trauma and injury. The program is supported by FIC, seven NIH partners, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, the Pan American Health Organization, and the World Health Organization (WHO). It addresses training across the range of basic to applied science, the epidemiology of risk factors, acute care and survival, rehabilitation, and long-term mental health consequences.
This new initiative builds global health research capacity in the United States and abroad. Through the "Framework Programs for Global Health," institutions create administrative frameworks to bring multiple schools (such as engineering, business, chemistry, biology, communication, public health, medicine and environmental studies) together on the topic of Global Health and develop multidisciplinary Global Health curricula for undergraduates, graduates and professional school students. Each program leverages and enhances currently funded Global Health projects at the institution supported by NIH and other sponsors as well as encourages new training opportunities, collaborations and research.
This program enables institutions in the United States or in developing foreign countries to support current and future collaborative research related training on infectious diseases that are predominately endemic in or impact upon people living in developing countries.
This program supports international research training for scientists from low and middle income nations in population-related sciences. This is an institutional training grant. Individuals from foreign countries who wish to become trainees must apply to the project director of an awarded grant.
This initiative supports the development of informatics training programs that will contribute to global health research and informatics capacity in low and middle-income countries in partnership with U.S. institutions.
This program allows domestic or foreign institutions to develop graduate curricula and provide training in international bioethics related to performing research in developing countries.
International Clinical, Operational, and Health Services Research and Training Award [ICOHRTA] (ICOH)
This program supports training to facilitate collaborative, multidisciplinary, international clinical, operational, health services and prevention science research between U.S. institutions and those in low and middle income nations. Information about current ICOHRTA programs and instructions for prospective trainees hoping to participate in this program are available at this website.
International Clinical, Operational, and Health Services Research and Training Award for AIDS and Tuberculosis [ICOHRTA-AIDS/TB] (IAPH1) & (IAPH2)
This program supports research training to strengthen the capacity of institutions to conduct clinical, research and implementation science, including operations and health services research focused on HIV infection, TB, and where relevant, HIV/TB co-infection prevention, care and treatment. These institutions are located in low- and middle-income countries where AIDS, TB, or both are significant problems. In Phase I, one-year planning grants to support the development of full research training applications in Phase II are awarded to institutions in low and middle income countries with strong HIV- or TB-related research experience. In Phase II, grants to support a research training program are awarded to Phase I awardees and to their United States institutional partner with whom they have strong HIV- or TB-related research collaborations. Individuals who wish to become trainees must apply to the project director of an awarded grant.
This program supports innovative genetics research training programs in the context of existing scientific collaborations between U.S. and low and middle income country researchers to begin to build a critical mass of scientists, health professionals and academics with human genetics expertise and a sustainable research environment at the collaborating foreign institution.
This program supports basic research, behavioral and clinical scientists at the postdoctoral level who are committed to a career in international health research and would benefit from an additional period of mentored research as part of a strong, established collaboration between a U.S. sponsor and leading scientists at a developing country center of scientific excellence.
This program enables U.S. universities and non-profit research institutions to support research training for scientists from developing nations in environmental health and occupational health. This is an institutional training grant. Applications are accepted from U.S. institutions in response to a specific request for applications which is published once every five years; the first awards were made in 1995. Individuals from foreign countries who wish to become trainees must apply to the project director of an awarded grant.
This research training program is designed to build research capacity in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) in the fields related to cancer, cerebrovascular disease including stroke, lung disease including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and environmental factors including indoor air pollution, and obesity and lifestyle factors related to these conditions as well as genetics of non-communicable diseases. The institutions applying can be domestic or foreign, but have to exhibit the ability to do such training, and must exhibit that they have existing research programs in these fields.
The Fogarty International Center in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the National Center on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NCMHD), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR), and the National Institute of Child Health and Child Development (NICHD) is offering a one-year clinical research training experience for graduate level U.S. students in the health professions.
