The Advanced Technology Partnerships Initiative centers on a unique R&D collaboration concept, where Frederick National Lab facilities, space, and expertise are available for cooperative R&D projects with academia, government, and life sciences industry partners to accelerate cancer and AIDS translational research. Many of the topics in this article involve using information technology. Usually, qualitative studies aim to study impact at a given site, rather than generalize findings to other similar sites. If technology is to be viewed as having a clear and essential role to play in education, it must have a clearly articulated research agenda and high quality studies that both document and shape its impact.

This section features well-documented articles on the practical aspects of research as well as applied theory in educational practice and provides a comprehensive source of current research information in instructional technology. The application should explain the potential impact of the technology in the context of biomedical research.

This FOA invites projects in Stage II of the Technology Development process. The Research Section assigns highest priority in reviewing manuscripts to rigorous original quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methods studies on topics relating to applications of technology or instructional design in educational settings.

Technology has moved at a fast pace over the last decade. A study by NIGMS staff in 2015, which included substantial, detailed input from the biomedical research community in response to a Request for Information (NOT-GM-15-118), concluded that there is a significant unmet need for explicit support of early stage technology development, prior to the application of nascent tools to actual biomedical research problems.

This section features well documented articles on the practical aspects of research as well as applied theory in educational practice and provides a comprehensive source of current research information in instructional technology. There are indications that the field of educational technology is gearing up to begin foundation work of the kind Burkhardt and Schoenfeld say is so essential.

Applications of the technology should be limited to test systems chosen to facilitate development of the technology. The Development Section publishes research on planning, implementation, evaluation and management of a variety of instructional technologies and learning environments.
