The National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) 
at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) will award National Research 
Service Award (NRSA) Institutional Training Grants (T32) to eligible 
institutions to develop or enhance research training opportunities for 
individuals, selected by the institution, who are training for careers 
in multi-disciplinary research concerned with biology and medicine. To 
facilitate these awards, the NIBIB will participate in NIH program 
announcement (PA) PA-00-103 titled "NIH National Research Service Award 
Institutional Research Training Grants" (released June 1, 2000).  This 
PA provides specifications for the NIH T32 program including 
eligibility requirements, application procedures, and review criteria.
The purpose of the NRSA program is to ensure that a diverse and highly-
trained workforce is available to assume leadership roles in the 
national biomedical research agenda.   

Consistent with the mission of the Institute, the NIBIB will award T32 
grants in areas associated with bioengineering, biomedical imaging, and 
multi-disciplinary research aimed at addressing problems in biology and 
medicine.  NIBIB awards will be for either pre-doctoral or post-
doctoral research training experiences.

Deadlines for pre-doctoral training applications to be received at the 
NIH in response to this notice are January 10, May 10, and September 10 
annually.  Post-doctoral training applications will be accepted only 
for the January 10 deadline annually.  

Applications will be reviewed by a subcommittee of the National 
Institute of General Medical Sciences' (NIGMS) Biomedical Research and 
Research Training (BRT) Review Group.  A description of the operation 
and composition of the BRT review subcommittees can be found on the
