K25

Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award

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.
 
The K25 award provides research support and career development for individuals without prior experience in biomedical research, but who hold a doctoral degree in one of the quantitative sciences.
 
K25s provide 3 to 5 year of support and are not renewable.

How to Apply

Applicants must be available to devote a minimum of 9 calendar months (75 percent of the year) worth of effort to this project.

Deadlines for Application

For new applications: February 12, June 12, and October 12
For resubmissions: March 12, July 12, and November 12 

The Grant at the NIDDK

The NIDDK does not issue a separate announcement for this program, but accepts applications submitted in response to the NIH K25 parent funding opportunity announcement.  We encourage K25 applications in all areas of research supported by the NIDDK.
 
A K25 applicant must identify a mentor in a discipline of interest to the NIDDK and develop an application that will incorporate both didactic coursework as well as a research project to take advantage of the applicant's background as well as the mentor's expertise.
 
The NIDDK gives preference to junior faculty members and will provide up to $90,000 per year for salary, the appropriate fringe benefits, and up to $40,000 per year for research support for K25 awards.
