Link to Full Announcement:

Description: Purpose: The National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research (NIDCR) will award T90/R90 grants to eligible institutions that are committed to supporting predoctoral and postdoctoral research training as a means to help ensure that a diverse and highly trained workforce is available to address the Nations health related needs in dental, oral, and craniofacial research. This NIDCR program is designed in recognition of the need to develop a cadre of highly qualified independent scientists who can successfully address basic, behavioral, and clinical research questions to improve oral, dental and craniofacial health. Trainees are required to pursue full-time research training. Priority will be given to programs that present plans and evidence that they will train dentist scientists either as predoctoral dual degree dentist scientists, dentists receiving PhD training or dentists training in a postdoctoral research experience. Mechanism of Support: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will use the T90/R90 mechanism that includes linked research training and education programs. Applicants will submit a single unified grant application and, if selected for funding, two separate awards will be issued: a T90 (Research Training award) and an R90 (Research Education award), which are based on distinct research training and education-related funding authorities. Each application must include a combination of the following full-time training programs: (1) a Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) institutional predoctoral and/or postdoctoral training component (T90), and (2) a non-NRSA institutional postdoctoral research component for non-citizen dentists (R90. NOTE: NIDCR has also issued a companion T32 Institutional Training Program Funding Opportunity Announcement (PAR-10-171). Institutions who do not wish to offer an education component to provide postdoctoral training to foreign-trained dentists who do not meet NRSA eligibility requirements should apply using that announcement. An institution may not submit applications in response to both announcements.
