The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) intends to issue a Request for Applications (RFA) to solicit applications for the Innovators in Hemoglobinopathies Career Development Award (K07). The goal of this initiative will be to foster the research career development of clinical scientists who have developed and implemented innovative programs for patients with sickle cell disease and/or the thalassemias.  The purpose of this K07 Program is to develop clinical research capacity in hemoglobinopathies by enabling new and early stage investigators to participate in the design and conduct of high-quality, multicenter and multidisciplinary studies that address important questions about patient management and the translation of research results into practice.  Candidates for this award would not be eligible for one of the other NHLBI mentored career development awards, i.e., K23, K01, or K08

This notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to develop meaningful collaborations and responsive projects.  The RFA is expected to be published in Fall 2009 with an expected receipt date in January 2010.

This RFA will utilize the K07 grant mechanism.
