1 Resources for Researchers Ralph Nitkin, Ph.D. National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR) Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR) National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) Human Development (NICHD) National Institutes of Health (NIH)

2 Diversity Supplements to already-funded NIH grants To add qualified individuals at any level (high school through investigator) who: –are from under-represented minorities –come from disadvantaged backgrounds –have disabilities –re-entering research after family obligations Contact NIH program director of funded grant

3 NICHD use of the Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) Clinical trained in targeted area* Clinical trained in targeted area* and have advanced degree (e.g., PhD) *NICHD is currently targeting: Medical Rehabilitation Population research Child abuse and neglect NICHD-specific info at:

4 NICHD uses K12 to support national network of career development Physiatrists (physical medicine and rehab) Phase 1: Mentored support outside of traditional PM&R departments Phase 2: Transition to junior faculty position Coming soon, K12s for: Allied Health researchers Rehabilitation engineers Neurological rehabilitation

5 NICHD use of Small Grants mechanisms: R03 and R21 Pilot studies (feasibility); innovative research; high-risk; new methodology or technology New investigators especially encouraged Budgets $100,000/$275,000, respectively, (direct costs) over two years Not renewable; may not to be used to supplement already-funded projects Not renewable; may not to be used to supplement already-funded projects

6 National Network of Medical Rehabilitation Research Infrastructure Cores Centralized research infrastructure for young faculty at the formative stage of their careers Six centers across the country State-of-the-art research facilities, mentorship, pilot grants, and other opportunities
