Title Summary Due Date
NIH NIEHS -
Innovative Basic Research on Adducts in Cancer Risk Identification and Prevention (R01)
PAR-15-308
Full announcement

Letter of intent due 06/10/2017; full proposal 07/11/2017. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages research projects focused on adducts to cellular macromolecules as indicators of exposures to cancer risk factors relevant to human populations. The priority is on projects that will focus on adductomic approaches, i.e., address some aspects of the totality of adducts. These projects should explore the basic aspects of adducts/adductomics that may have a potential utility in cancer detection, cancer prevention, and/or assessing cancer risks. The projects should be relevant to adducts in humans and human populations but may be conducted using various model systems (e.g., cultured cells, animals, etc.). The use of human biospecimens is encouraged and expected if appropriate but not required.

In well-justified cases, innovative studies using the adductomic approaches in the context of cancer etiology and/or gene-environment interaction research may also be appropriate. For projects intended for NIEHS support, the focus may be on innovative technology and method development.

Independent Scientist Award (Parent K02)
PA-16-192
Full announcement

FULL PROPOSAL:  The purpose of the NIH Independent Scientist Award (K02) is to foster the development of outstanding scientists and enable them to expand their potential to make significant contributions to their field of research. The K02 award provides three, four, or five years of salary support and “protected time” for newly independent (see IC provisions) scientists who can demonstrate the need for a period of intensive research focus as a means of enhancing their research careers. Each independent scientist career award program must be tailored to meet the individual needs of the candidate.

NIH Pathway to Independence Award (Parent K99/R00)
PA-16-193
Full announcement

FULL PROPOSAL:  The purpose of the NIH Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) program is to increase and maintain a strong cohort of new and talented, NIH-supported, independent investigators. This program is designed to facilitate a timely transition of outstanding postdoctoral researchers with a research and/or clinical doctorate degree from mentored, postdoctoral research positions to independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions. The program will provide independent NIH research support during this transition in order to help awardees to launch competitive, independent research careers.

Mentored Quantitative Research Development Award (Parent K25)
PA-16-194
Full announcement

FULL PROPOSAL: The purpose of the Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award (K25) is to attract to NIH-relevant research those investigators whose quantitative science and engineering research has thus far not been focused primarily on questions of health and disease.  The K25 award will provide support and “protected time” for a period of supervised study and research for productive professionals with quantitative (e.g., mathematics, statistics, economics, computer science, imaging science, informatics, physics, chemistry) and engineering backgrounds to integrate their expertise with NIH-relevant research.

NIH NLM -
NLM Career Development Award in Biomedical Informatics and Data Science (K01)
PAR-16-204
Full announcement

FULL PROPOSAL:  The purpose of the NLM Career Development Award (K01) in Biomedical Informatics and Data Science is to provide support and "protected time" (up to three years) for an intensive career development experience in biomedical informatics and data science leading to research independence. NLM invites K01 applications from junior investigators, who have either a health professional or research doctorate and who are in the first three years of their initial faculty positions. Candidates who received their training at one of NLM's university-based biomedical informatics training programs are encouraged to apply.

Transition to Independent Environmental Health Research (TIEHR) Career Transition Award (K01)
PAR-16-360
Full announcement

FULL PROPOSAL:  The overall goal of the NIH Research Career Development program is to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available in appropriate scientific disciplines to address the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs. In addition to this opportunity, NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) support a variety of other mentored career development programs designed to foster the transition of new investigators to research independence. These other programs may be more suitable for particular candidates.  NIH also supports non-mentored career development programs for independent investigators. More information about Career programs may be found at the NIH Extramural Training Mechanisms website. The objective of the Transitions to Independent Environmental Health Research (TIEHR) Career Award (K01) is to provide support to outstanding biomedical basic, behavioral or clinical investigators who are within the first 3 years of their first independent faculty appointment to develop their independent research skills through a 3-year bridge scholar development program for newly independent faculty.  This award is intended to provide junior faculty with pilot funding and salary support during this critical period of career development so that the candidate can further develop his/her independent research program and, subsequently, successfully compete for research funding in the environmental health sciences at the completion of the award.

NIAID Career Transition Award (K22)
PAR-16-434
Full announcement

These other programs may be more suitable for particular candidates.  NIH also supports non-mentored career development programs for independent investigators. More information about Career programs may be found at the NIH Extramural Training Mechanisms website. The NIAID K22 award will provide two years of support to conduct biomedical research as an independent scientist at an extramural sponsoring institution/organization to which the individual has been recruited, been offered and has accepted a tenure-track full-time assistant professor position (or equivalent). This support is to allow the individual to continue to work toward establishing his/her own independent research program and prepare an application for regular research grant support (R01).
