Special Institutional Statement Regarding Human Subjects Research Under K12 Support

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) Paul Calabresi Career Development Award for Clinical Oncology (K12) must be in compliance with all NIH/NCI policies pertaining to the use of human subjects. These policies apply to all research involving human subjects, not just clinical trials. The K12 is a training and career development grant in which candidate positions are filled at the discretion of the institution and assignment of candidate positions is generally not known at the time of application or at the time of an award. Due to this uncertainty, the word "Indefinite" should be placed in the box for IRB review date on the face page of the application and the applicant institution must provide in the submitted grant application a Special Statement on Human Subjects Research.
