Notice of Intent to Publish a Request for Applications for Career Development Program in Omics of Lung Diseases (K12)

Notice Number: NOT-HL-12-143

Key Dates

Release Date: May 24, 2012

Issued by

National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)


The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) intends to  publish a Career Development Programs Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) to help ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists is available in the area of genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, bioinformatics, computational modeling, and systems approaches  to lung diseases.

This notice is being provided to allow interested investigators sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects. 

The FOA is expected to be published in July 2012 with an expected receipt date in October 2012.

This FOA will utilize the K-12 activity code. The K12 Mentored Career Development program provides mentoring and support to highly-qualified junior investigators and new faculty to conduct research in a specific area of science with the purpose of accelerating their development into independent research investigators. The PD(s)/PI(s) and the faculty, who are in charge of the program, select the scholars who will get $75,000 in salary support for up to 3 years. After this period of training the scholars can apply for an individual K or for any other investigator initiated grant support.

Research Initiative Details

This Notice encourages PD(s)/PI(s) with expertise and insights into this area of genomic, proteomic metabolomic to begin to consider applying for this new FOA.

NHLBI encourages the study of pan-omics and integrated approaches to elucidate genomic and molecular bases of lung disease heterogeneity, key gene regulatory networks, and relevant disease biomarkers with the goal of advancing understanding of lung disease pathobiology and lung disease personalized medicine. Given the multidisciplinary nature of the research training, institutions/organizations proposing multiple PD(s)/PI(s) are encouraged.
