Length: 90 minutes
Early-stage and New Investigators often start their research careers applying for a mentored NIH Career (K) Award. While writing the K award has NIH-defined criteria, investigators don’t often think long term about their career direction and what they should be considering in their research. The transition from a mentored career to independent investigator can best be illustrated by the review criteria by which the NIH judges the K award and then the R grant. In these criteria are several keys to success to reaching independence and how investigators should think about their research.
This webinar examines the key review criteria that NIH uses to judge a K award and tie them to the K application, which is then tied to the R grant and a different set of review criteria. Understanding each of these will provide early investigators with tools to writing their K and R grants and information about how they should be thinking about their careers long term.
