Training Modules for Enhancing Biomedical Research Workforce Training Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Clearinghouse for Training Modules to Enhance Data Reproducibility
This program is intended to enable and encourage the scientific community to create and disseminate training modules that will effectively contribute to the advancement of the biomedical research workforce. NIGMS intends to fund training modules
in distinct subject areas that are currently relevant to biomedical scientists. The subject topics are described through “Notices of Special Interest (NOSI)” found in the “Related Notices” section of the notice of funding opportunity
NOT-GM-24-007 describes the five topic areas for the 2024 receipt date. Applicants must focus on
one of the topics below and may address only
one topic per application.
Modules can take many different formats and approaches. In general, NIGMS will support modules that:
Because of the complex nature of these topics, expert(s) in the subject areas are highly encouraged to be part of the investigator team. Members of the PD/PI team may hold a professional role other than professor or research faculty.
Finally, applicants should note that this funding opportunity is not intended to support stipends or salaries of trainees or participants in organizational training programs. However, individuals serving as training module development participants may receive compensation for giving feedback on the content. The funding is intended to create educational modules to be used in biomedical research environments, not to provide financial support to institutional training programs.
For the benefit of the scientific community, the training module end products are posted on the NIGMS website as they become available. For examples, see previously funded initiatives to enhance data rigor and reproducibility.
