The National Institutes of Health recognizes that fusion of information,
research practices, and technologies from multiple disciplines can foster
creative approaches to previously intractable problems. The purpose of this
RFA is to promote training in multiple disciplines so that this type of
creative problem solving and fusion of disciplines into novel
interdisciplines is more likely to occur. One example of an interdiscipline
is bioengineering, in which individuals need to understand principles and
methodologies of biology and engineering in order to pursue their research.
Recognizing that interdisciplinary approaches are more likely to evolve if
scientists are formally trained in multiple disciplines and that short,
intensive training programs can be very effective at providing students with
the fundamental aspects of a given discipline, this RFA seeks to promote the
development of new short interdisciplinary training programs for scientists
at all levels of their careers. These programs can involve varying ratios of
didactic and research training, but should include both. The goal of all of
the programs should be for the students to emerge with sufficient
understanding of a new discipline(s) that they can meld it with their
previous training to generate new interdisciplines with novel research
