The NIH Research Education Program (R25) supports research educational activities that complement other formal training programs in the mission areas of the NIH Institutes and Centers. The overarching goals of the NIH R25 program are to:

  • complement and/or enhance the training of a workforce to meet the nation’s biomedical, behavioral and clinical research needs;
  • encourage individuals from diverse backgrounds, including those from groups underrepresented in the biomedical and behavioral sciences, to pursue further studies or careers in research;
  • help recruit individuals with specific specialty or disciplinary backgrounds to research careers in biomedical, behavioral and clinical sciences; and
  • foster a better understanding of biomedical, behavioral and clinical research and its implications.

NIMH Research Education Mentoring Program for HIV/AIDS Researchers

Specifically, the NIMH is interested in the development of research education programs that have a thematic concentration in behavioral and social science research priorities (e.g., HIV prevention and care continua; understanding and addressing HIV-related health disparities; dissemination and implementation science research), and/or HIV neuroscience research (e.g., HIV/CNS neuropathogenesis; genetics and therapeutics; HIV/CNS latency and cure strategies). To accomplish the stated over-arching goal, this FOA will support creative educational activities with a combined focus on:

  • Research Experiences: For example, for undergraduate students: to provide hands-on exposure to research, to reinforce their intent to graduate with a science degree, and/or to prepare them for graduate school admissions and/or careers in research; for graduate and medical, dental, nursing and other health professional students: to provide research experiences and related training not available through formal NIH training mechanisms; for postdoctorates, medical residents and faculty: to extend their skills, experiences, and knowledge base; for high school and college science teachers: to enhance their science teaching.     
  • Mentoring Activities: For example, dedicated efforts at providing not only technical expertise, but advice, insight, and professional career skills to college students, graduate students, postdoctorates and/or early-career faculty.
