-The National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NIAMS), the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD), the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and the NIH Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) are interested in supporting additional training fellowship opportunities in muscle disease research.

- The number of awards and the total amount of funding that the NIAMS, NICHD, NINDS and ODS expect to award through this announcement will depend on the number of applications and the quality of the applications.
- This announcement uses the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) for Individual Postdoctoral Fellows (F32) (see http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-03-067.html).
- Eligible organizations include for-profit and non-profit organizations, public or private institutions such as universities, colleges, hospitals and laboratories, units of State and local governments, eligible agencies and labs of the Federal government including NIH intramural labs, domestic or foreign institutions/organizations.
- Trainees must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States, or have been lawfully admitted to the United States for permanent residence and have in their possession an Alien Registration Receipt Card (I-151 or I-551) at the time of award.
- An individual may not have two or more competing NIH fellowship applications pending review concurrently. In addition, CSR will not accept for review any application that is essentially the same as one already reviewed. This does not preclude the submission of a substantial revision of an application already reviewed, but such application must include an Introduction addressing the previous critique.
