NIBIB POLICIES ON THE K-SERIES CAREER DEVELOPMENT AWARDS
 
RELEASE DATE:  May 22, 2003 (see replacement NOT-EB-03-009)

NOTICE:  NOT-EB-03-007

National Institute for Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB)
 (http://www.nibib.nih.gov/) 

This notice provides guidance on the NIBIB policies for the K-series 
grant mechanisms.  A primary objective of the NIBIB interdisciplinary 
training program is to support the career development of clinicians and 
basic scientists in biomedical imaging and bioengineering.  The NIBIB 
supports a broad spectrum of K awards.  In doing so, our goal is to 
promote career development of scientists and clinician-scientists 
within the areas of the NIBIB mission by providing opportunities for 
additional mentored or independent research programs.  An additional 
objective is to attract individuals trained in the quantitative 
sciences into research careers focusing on questions relevant to 
biomedical science and health (K25). 

The mission of the NIBIB is to improve health by supporting and 
conducting interdisciplinary research and training in biomedical 
imaging and bioengineering.  This is achieved through supporting the 
development and translation of emerging technologies that enable 
fundamental biomedical discoveries and facilitate early disease 
detection and management.  More specifically, the NIBIB plans, conducts 
and supports an integrated and coordinated program of research and 
research training that can be applied to an individual or to a broad 
spectrum of biological processes, disorders, and diseases and across 
organ systems.  The research promoted and supported by the NIBIB is 
strongly synergistic with the other NIH Institutes and Centers as well 
as across government agencies, and has the potential for direct 
positive medical application.  Ultimately, the NIBIB seeks to translate 
research findings from the laboratory into practical solutions that 
will benefit the public health.  
 
The NIBIB currently accepts applications for the following K awards: 
K01, K02, K08, K23, and K25.  See our website for the full program 
announcements for these mechanisms: 
(http://www.nibib.nih.gov/training/students.htm) 

Allowable Costs:

Salary Support: Salary limits on career awards in the K series are not 
uniform throughout the NIH and are determined independently by each 
component of the NIH.  Currently, the NIBIB allows a maximum requested 
salary of $90,000 for K01, K02 and K25 applications.  A maximum 
requested salary of $105,000 is allowable for K08 and K23 applications. 

Research Development Support:  The NIBIB will also allow a request of 
up to $40,000 for research-related costs for K01, K08, K23, and K25 
applications.  See the individual program announcements for specifics 
on permissible costs under this category. 
(http://www.nibib.nih.gov/training/students.htm).  For the K02 
(Independent Scientist Award), it is expected that candidates applying 
would have other, independent, peer-reviewed research support at the 
time of award (see program announcement for full details, 
http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-00-020.html).  
Therefore, no additional research costs will be allowed except under 
special circumstances.
