Biomedical/Behavioral Research Administrator Development (BRAD) Program (formerly the Extramural Associates Program)

BRAD, (formerly the Extramural Associates Program) is designed to facilitate the development of institutional capacity at non-research intensive institutions that play prominent roles in educating the next generation of biomedical and behavioral scientists.

Administrative Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health-Related Research (Diversity Supplement)

Administrative Supplements To Promote Re-entry Into Biomedical And Behavioral Research Careers (Re-entry Supplements)

  • Purpose: Support individuals with high potential to re-enter an active research career after an interruption for family responsibilities or other qualifying circumstances, and encourage individuals to re-enter research careers within the missions of all the program areas of NIH.
  • The program will support full-time or part-time research by these individuals to update their existing research skills and knowledge.
  • The requested salary and fringe benefits for a re-entry candidate must be in accordance with the salary structure of the grantee institution, consistent with the level of effort. An additional amount up to $10,000 may be requested for supplies, domestic travel, and publication costs relevant to the proposed research.
