NIDDK Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01-No Independent Clinical Trials)
The purpose of the NIDDK Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide support and protected time (three, four, or five years) for an intensive, supervised career development experience in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence. The NIDDK invites K01 applications from experienced postdoctoral (two years minimum) and/or recently appointed junior faculty (usually with a Ph.D. degree) in biomedical or behavioral sciences who are pursuing careers in research areas supported by the NIDDK.
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is designed specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary study to a clinical trial that is itself comprised of a clinical trial intervention(s).

Applicants proposing a clinical trial or an ancillary study (that is itself a clinical trial) to an ongoing clinical trial as lead investigator, should apply to the companion FOA (PAR-DK-18-NNN).
