Team-Based Design in Biomedical Engineering Education (R25)
NIH - National Institutes of Health (PAR-16-108)
- Internal: 03/31/2018
- Proposal: 05/31/2018
- Amount: up to $40,000 per year
- Duration: up to 5 years
The over-arching goal of this NIBIB-NICHD R25 program is to support educational activities that complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs. To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a primary focus on:
- Courses for Skills Development: For example, courses and programs that address innovative and/or ground-breaking developments in Biomedical Engineering, multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary education, the regulatory pathway and other issues related to the commercialization of medical devices, and the immersion of engineering students in a clinical environment.
This FOA encourages applications from institutions that propose to establish new or to enhance existing team-based design courses or programs in undergraduate Biomedical Engineering departments or other degree-granting programs with Biomedical Engineering tracks/minors. This FOA mainly targets undergraduate students but may also include first-year graduate students. Courses and programs that address innovative and/or ground-breaking development, multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary education, the regulatory pathway and other issues related to the commercialization of medical devices, and clinical immersion are especially encouraged.
