The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) and the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) are committed to increasing the number of Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) students who wish to pursue doctoral research in the pharmaceutical sciences and clinical pharmacology.

Participating Organizations: It recognizes that current career paths for PharmDs have reduced the number of individuals who pursue academic research training. The intent of NIGMS, NICHD and ODS in issuing this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to provide individual research training fellowships to promising predoctoral applicants who are enrolled in PharmD/PhD programs in Schools of Pharmacy who desire to become productive and successful independent investigators and whose research meets the missions of NIGMS and NICHD. This F31 fellowship program will provide support for the dissertation stage of predoctoral students enrolled in joint PharmD/PhD programs. It is expected that the length of time for a F31 award will be 2 to 3 years.
