Program Summary

Program Summary

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites training grant applications for support of predoctoral and postdoctoral training for research careers in biomedical informatics and data science. Applications may be for the creation of entirely new programs or for the renewal of active NLM T15 training grants. Such training helps meet the growing need for investigators trained in biomedical computing, data science and related information fields as they directly relate to application domains in health and biomedicine, including health care delivery, basic biomedical research, clinical and translational research, public health and similar areas.

The expected project period is five years, beginning July 1, 2017.  Awards are normally made in 12-month increments with support for additional years based on satisfactory progress and the continued availability of funds.   NIH intends to fund an estimate of 14-16 awards, corresponding to a total amount of $14,000,000, for fiscal year 2017. Future year amounts will depend on annual appropriations. Indirect Costs (also known as Facilities & Administrative [F&A] Costs) are reimbursed at 8% of modified total direct costs (exclusive of tuition and fees, consortium costs in excess of $25,000, and expenditures for equipment), rather than on the basis of a negotiated rate agreement.
