This announcement supersedes all previously issued announcements for the

A new program announcement, describing changes to the Program, will soon 
be published accepting applications for the April 3, 2001 deadline.  

Effective with the April 3, 2001 deadline, applications will only be 
accepted from new investigators.

Development Awards, such as the Mentored Clinical Scientist Development 
Award (K08), Scholar Development and Faculty Transition Award (K22) and
