Program Overview

The Chronic, Noncommunicable Diseases and Disorders Across the Lifespan: Fogarty International Research Training Award program supports collaborative research training between institutions in the U.S. and low-and middle-income countries (LMICs), defined by the World Bank classification system. This institutional research training program aims to sustainably strengthen the research capacity of the LMIC institutions, and to train in-country experts to conduct research on chronic, noncommunicable diseases and disorders, with the ultimate goal of implementing evidence-based interventions relevant to their countries.

Examples of the noncommunicable diseases and disorders across the lifespan addressed by the program include, but are not limited to: mental health/ illness, neurological, alcohol and drug addiction and abuse, dental, craniofacial and developmental disorders, cancer, cardio- and cerebrovascular disease and stroke, chronic lung disease and diabetes. Research training is encouraged that emphasizes lifecycle studies and early life determinants of chronic diseases (including genetic, epigenetic, environmental and lifestyle factors), co-morbid conditions, implementation science and common risk factors and interventions relevant to multiple conditions and their prevention.

The NCD-Lifespan program consolidates the Noncommunicable Chronic Diseases Research Training Program (see the link to the expired announcement in the Archives below), International Clinical, Operational and Health Services Research and Training Award (ICOHRTA) and Global Research Training in Population Health (POP).
