Funded K05 Grants

The K05 NCI Established Investigator Award in Cancer Prevention and Control is for investigators with a Ph.D., M.D., or other research or professional degree who have an established record of independent, peer-reviewed Federal or private research support in the cancer prevention, control, or the behavioral or population sciences. In addition, candidates must demonstrate a need for K05 support to provide them with protected time for research and for mentoring junior investigators. The award provides support for up to five years of $50,000 annual salary for the recipient for levels of effort up to 3 calendar months (25% full-time professional effort). The award may be renewed one time. The actual salary provided under the award is based on the candidate's full-time, 12-month institutional salary and the level of effort requested, up to the maximum legislated salary rate in effect at the time of award. The award also provides up to $25,000 annually for research development support for mentees.
