Executive Summary

The goal of this proposal is to enhance capability of currently-funded career development award recipients (“K” awardees) to conduct research as they complete their transition to fully independent investigator status. The opportunity would support limited scope projects that could include pilot and feasibility studies; secondary analyses of existing data; small, self-contained research projects; development of research methodology; and development of new research technology. This opportunity will provide K awardees support for short-term, limited scope projects that will strengthen their competitiveness for a subsequent R01, or equivalent, and may provide preliminary data to support subsequent applications.
