NHLBI Research Training Programs for Non-Independent and Newly Independent Investigators
The goal of all these programs is to increase the numbers and capabilities of scientists engaged in biomedical and behavioral research and to offer scientists the opportunity to receive full-time training in areas that reflect a national need. The programs also provide non-independent and newly independent investigators the opportunity to establish their research careers.
For these researchers, the NHLBI has six research training programs:
The above awards provide both part-time and full-time support for 2 to 5 years.
For non-independent and newly independent researchers, the NHLBI offers four additional research training programs that support individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds or individuals who have experienced an interruption in their research careers.
