International Research Ethics Education and Curriculum Development Award (R25)
Application Due Date: June 4, 2019
The goal of this initiative is to support educational activities that foster a better understanding of the ethics of international biomedical, behavioral and clinical research and enhance the application of research ethics principles in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs). This program aims to increase the number of LMIC research intensive institutions that can provide advanced education in international research ethics. Education programs supported by this initiative will equip scientists, health professionals and academics in these countries with in-depth knowledge of the ethical principles, processes and policies related to international clinical and public health research. Programs should be designed to strengthen the critical competencies needed to provide research ethics education, ethical review leadership and expert consultation to LMIC researchers, their institutions, governments and international research organizations.
To accomplish this goal, this FOA will support innovative LMIC masters level research ethics education programs proposing integrated activities to develop curriculum, courses for skills development, including practicum experiences, and creative mentoring approaches.

Application Due Date: June 4, 2019
The overall goal of this initiative is to support the development of a sustainable critical mass of bioethics scholars in low and middle-income country (LMIC) research intensive institutions with the capabilities to conduct original empirical or conceptual ethics research that addresses challenging issues in health research and research policy in these countries as well as provide research ethics leadership to their institutions, governments and international research organizations. FIC will support LMIC-U.S. collaborative institutional bioethics doctoral and postdoctoral research training programs that incorporate didactic, mentored research and training components to prepare multiple individuals with ethics expertise for positions of scholarship and leadership in health research institutions in the LMIC.

    It is very important and cool that they allocate different grants to support different areas of science. This should motivate young people to work and learn.
