MedlinePlus Tutorials

After Thursday, MedlinePlus is no longer providing a library of interactive tutorials. This is based on trends the National Library of Medicine (NLM) observed from users and NLM’s desire to provide information that most closely aligns with user needs. NLM welcomes your feedback about how you think MedlinePlus information should be presented and what type of content is missing. Please send your suggestions or feedback to the National Library of Medicine through the Contact Us form.

Funding Opportunity from the National Cancer Institute

Comprehensive Partnerships to Advance Cancer Health Equity (CPACHE) (U54)

 

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites cooperative agreement (U54) applications for the implementation of Comprehensive Partnerships between institutions serving underserved health disparity populations and underrepresented students (ISUPS) and NCI-designated Cancer Centers (CC). The purpose of this FOA is to continue fostering and supporting intensive collaborations among investigators at ISUPS and CCs in order to develop stronger national cancer programs aimed at understanding the reasons behind the significant cancer disparities and related impacts on these populations.

 

Application Due Date: April 1, 2015 (Letter of Intent due 30 days prior to due date)

Learn more here: PAR-15-103

Eligibility Information:

Each partnership must include both types of institutions: 1) an institution serving underserved health disparity populations and underrepresented students (ISUPS); and 2) an NCI-designated Cancer Center (CC).  ISUPS with medical schools, or with more focused education and research programs (e.g., Masters and PhD programs), as well as those that offer only baccalaureate degrees and Tribal Colleges may all participate in this initiative.

 

About the NCI:

The NCI coordinates the National Cancer Program, which conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs with respect to the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of cancer, rehabilitation from cancer, and the continuing care of cancer patients and the families of cancer patients.  The Institute supports education and training in fundamental sciences and clinical disciplines for participation in basic and clinical research programs and treatment programs relating to cancer through career awards, training grants, and fellowships.

 

Please share this NIH funding opportunity with your colleagues.

Funding Opportunity from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute

Training Program for Institutions That Promote Diversity (T32)

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to enhance the participation of individuals from diverse backgrounds underrepresented in cardiovascular, pulmonary, hematologic and sleep disorders research across the career development continuum. This program is designed to expand the capability for biomedical research by providing grant support to institutions that have developed successful programs that promote diversity and serve health disparity populations and that offer doctoral degrees in the health professions or in health-related sciences.

Application Due Date: February 19, 2015
Learn more here: RFA-HL-16-007

Eligibility Information:
Applicant institutions must (1) have an institutional mission focused on serving students and diverse communities that are not well represented in NHLBI-funded research, or legislation recognizing such efforts, (2) serve high concentrations of students from disadvantaged backgrounds (a college or university where 20% or more of the student population receive Pell grants will be accepted as an indicator of concentrated student disadvantage), and (3) have a demonstrated need for research capacity development in cardiovascular disease (including associated conditions, e.g., obesity), lung, and blood diseases and sleep disorders.
Independent medical and graduate schools must (1) provide health care-related services to disadvantaged and underserved communities, and (2) have a need for research capacity development in cardiovascular disease (including associated conditions e.g., obesity), lung, and blood diseases.

About the NHLBI:
The NHLBI provides global leadership for a research, training, and education program to promote the prevention and treatment of heart, lung, and blood diseases and enhance the health of all individuals so that they can live longer and more fulfilling lives. The Institute collaborates with patients, families, health care professionals, scientists, professional societies, patient advocacy groups, community organizations, and the media to promote the application of research results and leverage resources to address public health needs.
