Health Related Research Research Supplements to Promote Diversity in Health Related Research Early Career Development Awards Goal: To transition junior faculty into successful R01 investigators by: Providing training needed for a research career Supporting career development activities Protecting time and effort for persons in early stages of research career (usually instructor or assistant professor)
Establishing an independent laboratory Early Career Development Awards: Eligibility Doctorate degree: For clinical research, MD, DO, DDS, doctorally-prepared nurse, or PhD in clinically related sciences (e.g. behavioral science, nutrition, exercise physiology, etc.) U.S. citizen or permanent resident Should not have received prior NIH research grant (R01). R21 or RO3 are okay. Willing and able to commit 75% effort Call NIH Institute contact person for clarification of eligibility Career Development Support Available from a K Award Stipend (Salary Plus Fringe) usually up to
$75,000 per year, for up to 5 years Requirement for 75% protected time for research or career development Research and training expenses Amount varies by institute (usually $25,000 per year) Tuition Travel Consultant fees (statistical consultation) Research assistants Career Development Support Available from a K Award
for highly technical specialties Availability differs by Institute Requirement for protected time for research or career development reduced to 50% for specialties (usually surgical) which entail levels of practice to maintain technical skills Needs to be justified in application Involve chair in cost-sharing Career Development Awards For Underrepresented* Scientists Mentored Career Award for Faculty at Minority Institutions (K01): Postdoctoral Individuals/New Independent Researchers.

For purposes of K23 award Research conducted with human subjects (or on material of human origin such as tissues, specimens) for which an investigator directly interacts with human subjects. This includes: mechanisms of human disease therapeutic and behavioral interventions clinical trials
development of new technologies What Doesnt Count as PatientOriented Research? Analysis of existing databases. Brief interaction with human subjects (such as one blood draw).
