The Fogarty International Center (FIC), the National Institute of Nursing
Research (NINR), the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS), and the National
Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) solicit proposals for the
International Research Scientist Development Award (IRSDA). This program
supports U.S. postdoctoral biomedical, social, and behavioral scientists in
the formative stages of their careers to conduct research in, or extend their
research into, developing countries. It provides the successful candidate
with a period of mentored research as part of an established collaboration
between a U.S. sponsor and a leading developing country scientist at an
internationally recognized research institution in a developing country. It
is expected that this experience will prepare scientists to pursue an
international research career involving on-going collaboration with developing
country scientists on global health challenges.

The IRSDA is part of the FIC strategy to encourage research collaborations in
developing countries in order to build research capacity to address global
health research priorities. The role of the IRSDA is to:

o Attract new research talent to global health research and enhance multi-
disciplinary synergy among the research collaborators at the U.S. and foreign

o Advance the career paths of exceptional junior U.S. scientists with
mentored training in health issues of developing country populations;

o Extend the impact and reach of existing research and training support for
developing country scientists and U.S. scientists committed to international

o Provide opportunities for developing country institutions with significant
potential to advance to higher levels of research excellence; and

o Stimulate a more effective translation of the results of research on global
health problems into practical public health actions.

With IRSDA support, the investigator will have the opportunity to work closely
with both an established foreign scientist in the developing world and a U.S.
investigator who are involved in collaborative research. The applicant will
conduct research and receive training at both the developed and developing
country institutions. It is expected that these awards will serve to forge
collaborative relationships between established, developing country
researchers and outstanding U.S. junior scientists, who are potential future
heads of basic, clinical and behavioral/social health research programs in the
U.S. Collaborations are expected to lead to advances that will reduce the
impact of global health problems and narrow the gap in health disparities
between developed and developing countries.
