This proposed information collection was previously published in the Federal Register on February 22, 2005, pages 8594–8595 and allowed 60 days for public comment. No public comments were received. The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional 30 days for public comment. The National Institutes of Health may not conduct or sponsor, and the respondent is not required to respond to, an information collection that has been extended, revised, or implemented on or after October 1, 1995, unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Proposed Collection: Title: Survey of NIGMS Minority Opportunities in Research (MORE) Division Institutional Program Directors. Type of Information Collection Request: NEW. Need and Use of Information Collection: NIGMS provides research and research training PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 support in the basic biomedical sciences through a variety of programs and grant mechanisms. Several of these programs are targeted toward support of underrepresented minority students at various educational levels and research faculty at minority-serving institutions. Although significant resources are dedicated to funding these programs, there is a lack of quantitative information on program outcomes. This proposed one-time survey is part of a larger study that will provide NIGMS with the high-quality data needed to evaluate the educational outcomes and research activity of students and faculty who are supported by NIGMS training and research support programs. Data on student enrollment and highest degree received will be collected from institutional program directors in the following programs: Minority Access to Research Careers Undergraduate Student Training in Academic Research (U*STAR), Minority Biomedical Research Support Initiative for Minority Student Development (IMSD), and Minority Biomedical Research Support Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (RISE). Other data will be collected from existing sources, including grant records and Medline databases. Taken together, the data will be used as a baseline for future assessments, as well to further develop current programs and in the creation of proposals for new initiatives in minority recruitment and training. These results will be reported to the National Advisory General Medical Sciences Council (NAGMSC) and shared with the community of NIGMS grantees. Frequency of Response: Once.

Medical Sciences (NIGMS), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has 
submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for

in Research (MORE) Division Institutional Program Directors. Type of 
Information Collection Request: NEW. Need and Use of Information 
Collection: NIGMS provides research and research training support in 
the basic biomedical sciences through a variety of programs and grant 
mechanisms. Several of these programs are targeted toward support of 
underrepresented minority students at various educational levels and

resources are dedicated to funding these programs, there is a lack of 
quantitative information on program outcomes. This proposed one-time 
survey is part of a larger study that will provide NIGMS with the high-
