Team-Based Design in Biomedical Engineering Education (R25)

*Update: There is a Letter of Intent due to the sponsor 30 days before the application due date. Although the LOI is not required, we want to avoid extra work for faculty and are pulling up the UW internal deadline to 4/10/13 in order to ensure enough time to review pre-proposals and to give the one application going forward enough time to send in an LOI*


This FOA, issued by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) and the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), encourages applications from institutions that propose to establish new or to enhance existing team-based design courses in undergraduate Biomedical Engineering departments or programs. This FOA targets undergraduate students at the senior level but may also include junior undergraduates and first-year graduate students. Courses that address innovative and/or ground-breaking development, multidisciplinary/interdisciplinary training and clinical immersion are especially encouraged.

Application Instructions

Please submit a two-page letter of intent with a list of all anticipated investigators, description of proposed aims and approach to by Thursday, April 25, 2013 Wednesday April 10, 2013.. Full applications are due to the sponsor on 5/13/13, so you will need to have your materials in to the Office of Sponsored Programs by 5/6/13 for processing if given the go ahead by the review committee.

Inquiries and Contact Information

Investigators who identify a grant, award or fellowship program that restricts the number of applications that can be submitted from an Institution should immediately contact their Chairperson, Associate Dean for Research (or Dean, if no ADR) and the Office of Research (see below) if they intend to prepare a response. Failure to do so, or to meet the deadlines for submission of pre-proposal, will preclude submission of the application through the Office of Sponsored Programs.

For general inquiries, or to request a listing of a limited submission opportunity that should be but is not already listed, please email us at
