The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), in conjunction with the National Center of Research Resources, announces a request for applications (RFA) focusing on "Educational Workshops in Interdisciplinary Research." The goal of this RFA is to foster the development of cross-disciplinary communication and research collaboration among various behavioral and social sciences or between behavioral/social sciences and biomedical sciences. To achieve this, short-term (1­2 week) education programs in interdisciplinary research aimed at social/behavioral and biomedical researchers during their formative stages of their careers will be funded.

The RFA was announced in the winter of 1996, in NIH's weekly Guide for Grants and Contracts. The guide may be found on the NIH home page (http://www.nih.gov) and an announcement is on the OBSSR page (http://www1.od.NIH.gov/obssr/obssr.htm).
