A list of information on NCI-supported training, fellowships, and research career development awards for postdoctoral candidates or mentored new faculty who are pursuing careers in: basic science; clinical science; cancer prevention, control, behavioral, and population sciences; transdisciplinary sciences; or translational research.

F32 - Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) for Individual Postdoctoral Fellows
This program offer grants to individuals with doctoral degrees for training in any aspect of cancer research, including annual NRSA stipends for awardees and institutional allowances to defray awardees' expenses.
Discipline(s): All Cancer Research

K07 - Cancer Prevention, Control, Behavioral and Population Sciences Career Development Award
This program is for individuals with a Ph.D., M.D., or other research or professional doctoral degree who are committed to careers in the fields of cancer prevention, control, or behavioral or population sciences. The award includes salary and research development support for the awardee's career.
Discipline(s): Cancer Prevention, Control, Behavioral and Population Sciences

K08 - Mentored Clinical Scientist Development Award
This program is for individuals with a clinical doctoral degree (e.g., M.D., N.D. or D.V.M.) who are committed to a career in laboratory-based biomedical or behavioral research or translational research with a laboratory focus. The award includes salary and research development support during the mentored phase of the awardee's career.
Discipline(s): Basic Sciences, Translational Research

K12 - Paul Calabresi Award for Clinical Oncology
This program provides grants to eligible institutions to support the research career development of clinicians, or clinicians and Ph.D. basic science postdocs to perform clinical oncology therapeutic research, design and test clinical oncology therapeutic protocols, administer all phases of cancer clinical trials, and conduct cancer therapeutic research in team research settings. The award includes salary and research development support for the trainees and partial salary support for the PI.
Discipline(s): Clinical Science: Patient-Oriented Research, Translational Research

K22 - Transition Career Development Award
This program is for doctoral clinicians or scientists involved in cancer research who are currently receiving support in a mentored postdoctoral appointment. Candidates must be ready to transition into their first independent research position. A unique feature of this award is that applicants do not need an institutional sponsor at the time of application. The award includes salary and research development support for the awardee's career. The award includes salary and support for career development costs.
Discipline(s): All Cancer Research

This program is for clinically trained professionals including nurses and individuals with clinical Ph.Ds., who can perform clinical duties and are committed to careers focused on patient-oriented or translational research. The award includes salary and support for career development costs.
Discipline(s): Clinical Science: Patient-Oriented Research

K25 - Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award
This program is for investigators, from the postdoctoral level (or equivalent) to senior faculty, whose quantitative science (e.g., mathematics, statistics, physics) and engineering research has thus far not been focused primarily on questions of health and disease but who have the potential and commitment to integrate their expertise with NIH-relevant research and develop into productive investigators. The award includes salary and research development support during the mentored phase of the awardee's career.
Discipline(s): Any Quantitative Science, Transdisciplinary Sciences

K99/R00 - The Pathway to Independence Award in Cancer Research
This is a two-phase program (Phase I: Mentored; Phase II: Independent) for new scientists (Ph.D., postdocs, M.D.'s in a mentored position) in laboratory-based cancer research who are committed to developing research programs in understanding human biology and human disease as they relate to the etiology, pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human cancer.
