NCCIH Specific Information:

NCCIH uses the K99/R00 program to support outstanding postdoctoral investigators who are seeking to establish an independent career and have the potential to become a future leader in an area of research supported by the Center.

  • The K99 phase may ONLY include observational, basic or mechanistic research projects in areas of NCCIH’s interest and priorities. A mechanistic study is defined as one designed to understand the mechanism of action of an intervention, a biological process, or the pathophysiology of a disease. NCCIH will accept applications that propose a study in the K99 phase with human participants when the primary outcome/endpoint is explicitly mechanistic, rather than a clinical outcome, even if the mechanistic study meets the NIH definition of a clinical trial.
  • NCCIH will not fund applications proposing a clinical trial to test efficacy or effectiveness in either the K99 or R00 phase. Applicants are encouraged to discuss their proposed scope of work with an NCCIH program officer, and to review resources available at NCCIH’s Clinical Research Toolbox.
  • Before the application receipt date, investigators are strongly encouraged to discuss their proposed research interest with an NCCIH Program Officer in the specific scientific area and/or intervention that is closely-related to the proposed project to confirm its relevance to NCCIH's mission and research priorities. A list of NCCIH program officials can be found at http://NCCIH.nih.gov/grants/contact#area.
  • The K99/R00 is appropriate for applicants who are prepared for an accelerated career path, who will be ready to compete for R01 and R01-like grant funding in the next three years. Individuals interested in a longer time frame of mentored research support should consider the K01, K08, or K23.
  • Applications proposing the use of natural products or devices in an interventional research project should explicitly describe the status of the Investigational New Drug (IND) or Investigational Device Exemption (IDE). Applicants interested in natural products research are encouraged to review NCCIH's Natural Product Integrity Policy.
    Applications should include explicit statements from the institution and the mentor(s) addressing the following:
    • Detailed information about who will provide the necessary resources;
    • Funding source and amount of additional funding (as needed);
    • Support staff available and committed to the project;
    • Availability of biostatistical support for the duration of the study - including the planning period; and
    • A contingency plan (for the institution and mentor) for completion of the study in the event the awardee leaves the institution earlier than the end date of the award.

 
Salary Support: Commensurate with the applicant institution's salary structure for persons of equivalent qualifications, experience, and rank.

Research Support: Up to $20,000 per year in the K99 phase.

NHLBI Specific Information:

 

Please refer to https://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/grants-and-training/training-and-career-development/postdoctoral for specific information on NHLBI programs and career development policies. 

NHLBI encourages career development award applications that propose mentored training in data science disciplines, including but not limited to Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Deep Learning, Healthcare Data Analytics, Public Health Data Analytics, Imaging Analytics, Predictive Analytics, and Bioinformatics, for the creation, management, analysis, and integration of complex, large data sets in support of data-driven discovery in heart, lung, blood, and sleep health and disease. Proposals must meet all other requirements specified in the parent announcement.

Eligibility:  If an individual has a faculty appointment and is eligible to apply for an independent research funding as the PD/PI of an NIH research grant, he/she is no longer eligible for the K99/R00 mechanism. Additionally, individuals holding certain Career Development Awards that require a faculty appointment (such as the American Heart Association CDA) are not eligible to apply for the K99/R00 mechanism. K99 awardees cannot hold a faculty appointment. If a K99 awardee is allowed to apply to an independent NIH research grant (or equivalent) funding during the K99 phase, they will be considered independent and will need to relinquish the K99 award and will not be eligible for transition to the R00 phase. To maintain R00 eligibility, awardees in the K99 mentored phase should discuss any potential changes to their academic appointment with an NHLBI Scientific Program Contact. Physician scientists with a clinical faculty appointment, distinct from their research/academic appointment, may still be eligible and should approach an NHLBI Scientific Program Contact for guidance.

Salary Support: Up to $100,000 plus fringe benefits per year.
Research Support: Up to $25,000 per year.

Within these areas, approaches that are comprehensive across the genome or are generalizable across variants, tissues, diseases, or functions may be in scope for NHGRI.

NHGRI recognizes the importance of diversity in the genomic workforce, without which the promise of genomics cannot be fully achieved.

Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the Scientific Program Contact to discuss their concept for this initiative during the development stages of the application.

Salary Support: NHGRI will provide K99 salary support commensurate with the applicant institution's salary structure for persons of equivalent qualifications, experience, and rank.
Research Support: Up to $30,000 per year for K99 phase.

In addition to Research Support, which may be used to travel to scientific conferences, applicants can request additional travel costs of up to $1500 per year to attend the NHGRI Research Training and Career Development Annual Meeting while supported on the K01. These additional travel funds cannot be re-budgeted to attend another meeting.

NIBIB Specific Information:

NIBIB welcomes applications from postdoctoral scientists seeking to establish an independent research career in scientific program areas relevant to NIBIB. In general, NIBIB interests include the development and integration of advanced bioengineering, sensing, imaging, and computational technologies for the improvement of human health and medical care. An application is not within the NIBIB mission if its principal focus is the development of a technology with the goal of understanding basic biological function or pathological mechanisms.

Additionally, NIBIB only supports projects developing platform technologies that are applicable to a broad spectrum of disorders and diseases. However, applicants may propose research that utilizes only a single tissue, organ, or physiological condition as a model system to facilitate the development of what is expected to be a more broadly applicable enabling technology.
 

Before preparing an application, prospective applicants are encouraged to fill out the NIBIB K99/R00 Eligibility Inquiry Form and forward it along with the requested attachments to the Scientific Program Contact in order to verify eligibility, determine if the application is appropriate for a K99 award through NIBIB, and ensure that the application is submitted to the appropriate NOFO.
