Funded K25 Grants

The K25-Mentored Quantitative Research Career Award is for research-oriented investigators, from the postdoctoral level (or equivalent) to senior faculty in a quantitative area of science or engineering outside of biology or medicine (mathematics, statistics, physics, etc.). Candidates should have little or no prior experience in applying their skills to biomedical research but have the potential to integrate their expertise with NIH-relevant research and develop into productive investigators. This award supports a mentored, cancer-focused career development experience in biomedical, behavioral, or bioengineering research. The award provides nonrenewable support for up to five years, with $100,000 annual salary and $40,000 annually for research support. The K25 requires a minimum of 75% effort commitment to the research and career development objectives of the award.
