Instructions: In a table (Table 4), for each participating faculty member, list active and pending research grant and contract support from all sources (including Federal, non-Federal, and institutional research grant and contract support) that will provide the context for research training experiences, but excluding research training grants. If none, state "None." Include the source of support and grant number; title; status (active or pending) and dates of the entire project period; and the current year annual direct costs. If part of a larger project, identify the principal investigator, the role of the faculty member in the grant, and provide the above data for that portion of the project available to the faculty member. For grants with major budget changes in future years such as clinical trials, include data for all budget years.

Rationale: This table provides evidence of the strength of the research environment, the availability of funds to support research conducted by the trainees, and the appropriateness of the participating faculty members in terms of their active research support.

Instructions: In a table (Table 5), for each participating faculty member, list in groups all past and current pre- and postdoctoral trainees for whom the faculty member was/is the thesis advisor or sponsor (past 10 years only). Indicate in parentheses under the trainee name where the pre- or postdoctoral training with the faculty member occurred, if at a different institution. Exclude medical interns and residents unless they are heavily engaged in laboratory research. For each trainee indicate: whether predoctoral or postdoctoral; the training period; previous institution, degree, and year awarded prior to entry into training; title of the research project; and for past students, their current positions or for current students, their source of support. In competing continuation applications, denote trainees who were or are supported by this training grant with a double asterisk (**).

Rationale: The data in this table permit an evaluation of the success of the proposed faculty in facilitating the progression of students in their research careers, the ability of the faculty to commit appropriate time to mentoring additional trainees, and the institutions from which their trainees are selected.

Instructions: In a table (Table 8B), list the qualifications and application outcomes of recent postdoctoral applicants to each participating department/program. Applicants should be listed anonymously and identified by a number in sequence, rather than by name, to safeguard privacy. Indicate applicants who were Kirschstein-NRSA training grant eligible (TGE) with an asterisk (*). Indicate TGE applicants who are under-represented minorities (URM) with a double dagger (‡). For each applicant, provide: previous institutions(s) attended, degree(s) and year awarded; thesis research topic or other research topic (if relevant) and research advisor; and residency training (when appropriate), including area of specialization, institution, and PGY. Indicate whether applicants were or were not offered admission and whether they entered the program. For Competing Continuation applications, indicate those applicants who have been or are currently supported by this grant. Sort applicants by department/program, year of application, and then list those who entered followed by those who did not enter.

Programs that select postdoctoral trainees exclusively from candidates who are recruited to academic department(s) or programs (e.g., Department of Hematology or Interdepartmental Program in Cancer Therapeutics) rather than into individual laboratories, should provide data for each participating department/program. Include only those postdoctoral applicants who could be considered candidates for the proposed training program. Programs that select trainees exclusively from candidates who are recruited directly to the laboratories of the proposed faculty mentors should list only those candidates who are in the laboratories of the faculty mentors and considered for the program. Please indicate in a footnote which system of recruitment is used by this program.

Rationale: The data provided in this table will permit an evaluation of the quality and depth of the applicant pool. The data permit separate analyses for TGE, URM, and non-TGE applicants. These data are useful in determining the selectivity of the admissions process, the competitiveness of the program, the success of the recruitment of URM trainees, and the appropriate number of training positions to be awarded.
