The Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) provides funds for K awardees interested in clinical and translational research. Some K Scholars may need additional support to be competitive for R01-grant awards. The K to R01 Transition to Independence program is designed to support faculty by providing mentorship, oversight, and pilot funds. This two-year program aims to place junior investigators, who have K awards, further on the path to be competitive for R01 awards. This RFA will be issued annually. Success of this program will be judged by the number of awardees who move forward to secure NIH R01 grants, and R01 equivalent funding for clinical and translational research.
Applications from underrepresented populations are strongly encouraged.
