9 Career Development Award “K” Awards

10 Mentored Research Scientist Development Award K01 http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-019.html

11 K01 Purpose is to develop outstanding scientists 3 – 5 yrs of supervised research experience 75 % effort Ineligible if prior R01, R29, K(01,07,23), P(01,50) Salary: Salary determined by I/C –NIAMS=$75,000)

12 K01 Research Dev. Support: i.e., tuition, fees & research support. Amount varies (NIAMS = $20,000) Facilities & Admin costs: Fixed at 8% Mentor should have independent research support (mentor is not salaried) Standard receipt dates

13 Mentored Clinician Scientist Development Award K08 http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-003.html

14 K08 Purpose is to develop clinical research scientists Similar format/regulations to K01 52.3% success rate

15 NIAMS Career Transition Award K22 http://www.niams.nih.gov/rtac/funding/grants/pa/par_02_056.pdf

16 K22 Provides training within a NIAMS intramural lab followed by support in an extramural institution Ineligible if prior R01, R29, SBIR/STTR, P01, P50, K08 Provides up to $150,000/YR for all years

17 K22 Intramural (Phase I): Salary based upon training &experience. Extramural (Phase II): Salary up to $75,000. Can be supplemented. 75% effort. Up to $75,000 for research supplies. F & A: 8% Standard receipt dates 40.2 % success rate

18 Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award K23 http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-004.html

19 K23 Purpose is to develop clinical researchers 3 – 5 yrs of support; 75% effort Same eligibility as the other K’s Salary : Varies by I/C. May be supplemented (NIAMS = $75,000) Res. Development Support: Up to $25,000 F & A: 8%

20 K23 Mentors should have independent research support Can not be salaried. Standard receipt dates 46.6 % success rate

21 Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award K25 http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-02-127.html

22 K25 Purpose is to foster interdisciplinary collaboration in biomedical research by supporting career development experiences for scientists with quantitative and engineering backgrounds 3-5 YRS of support 75% effort Similar format/regulations as other Ks

23 NIAMS Small Grant Award for New Investigators R03 http://www.niams.nih.gov/rtac/funding/grants/pa/par_04_002.pdf

25 Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant R21

26 Appropriate for early stages of research that are high risk because of possible failure, but if successful, may be of significant benefit 2 YRS of support; $275,000 split over the 2 yrs

27 R21 Program Announcements PA-03-058: Exploratory/Developmental (R21) Bioengineering Research Grant (EBRG) http://www.niams.nih.gov/rtac/funding/gr ants/pa/pa_03_058.pdf PA-03-107: NIH Exploratory/Developmental Research Grant Award (R21) http://www.niams.nih.gov/rtac/funding/gr ants/pa/pa_03_107.pdf

28 Shorter Duration R01 Prove feasibility, setting stage for what to follow in a competing continuation Suggest 3 years Avoids being “overly ambitious” in an R03, or if limited preliminary data, “high risk” for a longer duration R01

29 NIH Loan Repayment Program for Clinical Researchers Purpose: To recruit & retain clinical investigators Re-pays up to $35,000/YR of educational loan expenses for each YR of obligated service Also pays 39% of loan repayment to IRS Must agree to engage in clinical research a minimum of 2 years http://www.lrp.nih.gov
