Additional comments: The objective of the NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide salary and research support for a sustained period of “protected time” (3 years) for intensive research career development under the guidance of an experienced mentor, or sponsor, in the biomedical, behavioral or clinical sciences that leads to research independence. The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Career Development Award in Biomedical Informatics (K01) is intended to provide support for promising junior investigators as they launch their research careers in biomedical informatics research. NLM supports research career development in clinical/public health informatics, bioinformatics, translational informatics and consumer health informatics. We define informatics as the intersection of computer, information and behavioral sciences with one or more application domains. Application domains of interest include health care delivery, basic biomedical research, clinical and translational research, public health and others. NIH will contribute up to $85,000 plus fringe benefits per year toward the salary of the career award recipient and $50,000 per year toward the research development costs of the award recipient. $405,000 max over three years.
