Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01)
The Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) provides support for an intensive, supervised career development experience in one of the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence. Candidates for this award normally must have a research or health-professional doctorate and postdoctoral research experience at the time of application. In addition, the candidate must be able to demonstrate the need for a three, four, or five-year period of additional supervised research as well as the capacity and/or the potential for highly productive independent research. The proposed career development experience must be in a research area new to the applicant and/or one in which an additional supervised research experience will substantially add to the research capabilities of the applicant. The candidate must provide a plan for achieving independent research support by the end of the award period.

Although most of the NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) use this award to support career development experiences that lead to independence, the characteristics of the ideal candidate may vary. Some of the ICs reserve this award for individuals who propose to train in a completely new field or for individuals who have had a hiatus in their careers because of illness or pressing family circumstances. Other ICs reserve the K01 for faculty from underrepresented groups or faculty at minority serving institutions who may want to enhance their research skills and knowledge through a period of supervised training at a research center. Finally, some ICs use it to support a research experience that will substantially expand the knowledge and capabilities of a current postdoctoral scientist. Therefore, potential applicants are strongly advised to contact the appropriate NIH staff contact at the end of the complete announcement (see website) to discuss their particular situation before developing an application.

Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Program Award (K12)
The Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Program Award (MCSDPA) is an award to an educational institution to support career development experiences for clinicians leading to research independence. At present this mechanism is only supported by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research. Under this award, newly-trained clinicians are to be selected and appointed to this program award by the grantee institution. In other respects, the research experience of the candidates selected for support under this award should resemble those supported by the individual Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award.

Applications for this award should propose a research plan which has both intrinsic research importance and will also serve as a suitable vehicle for learning the methodology, theories, and conceptualizations necessary for a well trained independent researcher. The program should be designed to accommodate appointees with varying levels of experiences. For example, a prospective candidate with limited experience in a given field of research may find it appropriate to engage in a structured, phased developmental program, including a designated period of didactic training followed by a period of supervised research experience. The entire program should be comparable in scope and rigor to meeting the requirements for an advanced research degree.

Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award (K25)
Click Here
Research at the borders of disciplines and from fresh perspectives often produces surprising and exciting results. Increasingly, teams of scientists from diverse disciplines converge on a common research questions. Individuals who can independently bridge different disciplines, as well as those who are able to function as leading members of multi-disciplinary research teams are playing ever more valuable roles at the forefront of biomedicine. The purpose of the Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award (K25) is to engender and foster such activities by supporting the career development of investigators with quantitative scientific and engineering backgrounds outside of biology or medicine who have made a commitment to focus their research endeavors on behavioral and biomedical research (basic or clinical). This mechanism is aimed at research-oriented scientists with experience at the level of junior faculty (e.g., early to mid-levels of assistant professor or research assistant professor ranks). This award provides support for a period of supervised study and research for professionals with such backgrounds who have the potential to integrate their expertise with biomedicine and develop into productive investigators.

Examples of quantitative scientific and technical backgrounds outside of biology or medicine considered appropriate for this award include, but are not limited to: mathematics, statistics, computer science, informatics, physics, chemistry, and engineering.

Clinical Research Curriculum Award (CRCA) (K30)
Click Here
The CRCA is an award to institutions and addresses, in part, the NIH's initiative to improve the quality of training in clinical research. The NIH recognizes that highly trained clinical researchers are needed in order to capitalize on the many profound developments and discoveries in fundamental science and to translate them to clinical settings. This RFA is intended to stimulate the inclusion of high-quality, multidisciplinary didactic training as part of the career development of clinical investigators. The CRCA supports the development or improvement of core courses designed as in-depth instruction in the fundamental skills, methodology, theories, and conceptualizations necessary for the well-trained, independent, clinical researcher. While many NIH programs support research experiences for new clinicians, not all of these trainees have the opportunity to receive formal course work in the design of clinical research projects, hypothesis development, biostatistics, epidemiology, and the legal, ethical and regulatory issues related to clinical research.

This award is intended to support the development of new didactic programs in clinical research at institutions that do not currently offer such programs or, in institutions with existing didactic programs in clinical research, to support or expand their programs or to improve the quality of instruction. The goal of this program is to improve the training of the participants, so that upon completion of their training, they can more effectively compete for research funding.

For the purpose of this award, clinical research includes: patient-oriented research, epidemiologic and behavioral studies, and outcomes or health services research. The NIH defines patient-oriented research as research conducted with human subjects (or on material of human origin such as tissues, specimens, and cognitive phenomena) for which an investigator directly interacts with human subjects. This area of research includes the development of new technologies, mechanisms of human disease, therapeutic interventions and clinical trials.
