MENTORED RESEARCH SCIENTIST DEVELOPMENT AWARD (K01) Release Date: December 2, 1999 (This PA has been reissued, see PA-06-001) (See update, NOT-MH-05-008) (See update, NOT-DA-05-005) (Expiration date extended, see NOT-OD-05-011) (see update NOT-DA-05-001 and addendum NOT-EB-03-003) PA NUMBER: PA-00-019 EXPIRATION DATE: October 4, 2005 National Institute on Aging National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases National Cancer Institute National Institute of Child Health and Human Development National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases National Institute on Drug Abuse National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences National Institute of Mental Health National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke National Institute of Nursing Research National Human Genome Research Institute National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine National Center for Research Resources Special Note: The NIH institutes and centers implement this award in different ways to accommodate the career needs of researchers working in fields related to their specific missions. In the early stages of application preparation, all candidates are strongly encouraged to contact the prospective NIH awarding component listed at the end of this announcement to discuss issues of eligibility and the specific provisions of this award. PURPOSE The Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) provides support for an intensive, supervised career development experience in one of the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence. Candidates for this award normally must have a research or health-professional doctorate and postdoctoral research experience at the time of application. In addition, the candidate must be able to demonstrate the need for a three, four, or five-year period of additional supervised research as well as the capacity and/or the potential for highly productive independent research. The proposed career development experience must be in a research area new to the applicant and/or one in which an additional supervised research experience will substantially add to the research capabilities of the applicant. The candidate must provide a plan for achieving independent research support by the end of the award period. Although most of the NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs) use this award to support career development experiences which lead to independence, the characteristics of the ideal candidate may vary. Some of the ICs reserve this award for individuals who propose to train in a completely new field or for individuals who have had a hiatus in their careers because of illness or pressing family circumstances. Other ICs reserve the K01 for faculty from underrepresented groups or faculty at minority serving institutions who may want to enhance their research skills and knowledge through a period of supervised training at a research center. Finally, some ICs use it to support a research experience that will substantially expand the knowledge and capabilities of a current postdoctoral scientist. Therefore, potential applicants are strongly advised to contact the appropriate NIH staff contact at the end of this announcement to discuss their particular situation before developing an application. HEALTHY PEOPLE 2000 The Public Health Service (PHS) is committed to achieving the health promotion and disease prevention objectives of "Healthy People 2000," a PHS led national activity for setting priority areas. This Program Announcement (PA), Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01), is related to one or more of the priority areas. Potential applicants may obtain a copy of "Healthy People 2000" at http://odphp.osophs.dhhs.gov/pubs/hp2000. ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS In general, the candidate must have a research or a health-professional doctorate or its equivalent, and must have demonstrated the capacity or potential for highly productive independent research in the period after the doctorate. The candidate must identify a mentor with extensive research experience. The candidate must be willing to spend a minimum of 75 percent of full-time professional effort conducting research and research career development during the entire award period. The candidate must clearly describe the need for intensive research supervision for a period lasting three, four, or five years leading to research independence. All potential applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the prospective NIH awarding component regarding their eligibility for the K01. Candidates for the K01, under some circumstances, may have been principal investigators on NIH research or career development awards, provided the research experience proposed in this application is in a fundamentally new field of study or there has been a significant hiatus in their research career because of family or other personal obligations. Also, under some circumstances, current principal investigators on NIH research grants may be eligible if the proposed research experience is in a fundamentally new field of study. Current principal investigators on NIH career awards are not eligible. A candidate for the K01 award may not have pending nor concurrently apply for any other career development award. K01 recipients are encouraged to apply for independent research grant support during the period of this award. Applications may be submitted, on behalf of candidates, by domestic, non- Federal organizations, public or private, such as medical, dental, or nursing schools or other institutions of higher education. Minorities, women, and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or non-citizen nationals, or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence by the time of award. Individuals admitted for permanent residence must be able to produce documentation of their immigration status such as an Alien Registration Receipt Card (I-551) or some other verification of legal admission as a permanent resident. Non-citizen nationals, although not U.S. citizens, owe permanent allegiance to the U.S. They are usually born in lands that are not states but are under U.S. sovereignty, jurisdiction, or administration. Individuals on temporary or student visas are not eligible for this award. MECHANISM OF SUPPORT Awards in response to this PA will use the K01 mechanism. Planning, direction, and execution of the program will be the responsibility of the candidate and her/his mentor on behalf of the applicant institution. The project period may be for three, four, or five years and will depend upon the number of years of prior research experience, the need for additional experiences to achieve independence, and the policy of each particular institute or center. Awards are not renewable. RESEARCH OBJECTIVES A. Environment: The institution must have a well-established research and clinical career development program and qualified faculty in clinical or basic research to serve as mentors. The institution must be able to demonstrate a commitment to the development of the candidate as a productive, independent investigator. B. Program: The award provides up to five consecutive 12-month awards. At least 75 percent of the recipient's full-time professional effort must be devoted to the goals of this award. The remainder may be devoted to clinical, teaching, or other research pursuits consistent with the objectives of the award. Both the didactic and the research phases of an award period must be designed to develop the necessary knowledge and research skills in scientific areas relevant to the career goals of the candidate. Because of the focus on progression to independence as a researcher, candidates for the K01 should propose a period of study and career development consistent with her or his previous research experience. For example, a candidate with limited experience in the proposed field of research may find a phased developmental program lasting five years that includes a designated period of didactic training followed by a period of closely supervised research experience the most efficient means of attaining independence. A candidate with previous research experience in a related field may not require extensive additional didactic preparation and a program that focuses on an intensive, supervised research experience may be appropriate. All programs must be tailored to meet the individual needs of the candidate ensuring that he/she will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out high quality health-related research. The candidate and the mentor are jointly responsible for the preparation of the plan for this program. The sponsor may form an advisory committee to assist with the development of a program of study or to monitor the candidate's progress through the career development program. C. Mentor(s): Candidates must name a primary sponsor (or mentor), who together with the applicant is responsible for the planning, direction, and execution of the program. The mentor should be recognized as an accomplished investigator in the proposed research area and have a track record of success in training independent investigators. The mentor should have sufficient independent research support to cover the costs of the proposed research project in excess of the allowable costs of this award. Candidates may also nominate co-mentors as appropriate to the goals of the program. Where feasible, women, minority individuals and individuals with disabilities should be involved as mentors to serve as role models. D. Allowable Costs: 1. Salary: The NIH will provide salary and fringe benefits for the career award recipient. The total salary requested is normally based on a full-time, 12-month staff appointment. It must be consistent both with the established salary structure at the institution and with salaries actually provided by the institution from its own funds to other staff members of equivalent qualifications, rank, and responsibilities in the department concerned. If full-time, 12-month salaries are not currently paid to comparable staff members, the salary proposed must be appropriately related to the existing salary structure. Salary limits on career awards are not uniform throughout the NIH and are determined independently by each component of the NIH. Therefore, prospective candidates should contact the NIH institute or center to which the application is targeted to ascertain the maximum contribution to the candidate's salary. In no case will the award provide salary in excess of the current legislated maximum salary (in fiscal year 1999 the maximum salary provided by a federal grant is $125,900). The institution may supplement the NIH salary contribution up to a level that is consistent with the institution's salary scale; however, supplementation may not be from Federal funds unless specifically authorized by the Federal program from which such funds are derived. Because the salary amount provided by this award is based on the full-time institutional salary, no other NIH funds may be used for salary supplementation. Institutional supplementation of salary must not require extra duties or responsibilities that would interfere with the purpose of the K01. Under expanded authorities, however, institutions may rebudget funds within the total costs awarded to cover salaries consistent with the institution's salary scale up to the current legislated maximum salary. 2. Research Development Support: The amount of research development support is not uniform across the NIH and is determined independently by each awarding component of the NIH. Therefore, prospective candidates should contact the appropriate NIH component listed at the end of this announcement to ascertain the maximum contribution to the candidate's research and development costs. These funds may be used for the following expenses: (a) tuition, fees, and books related to career development; (b) research expenses, such as supplies, equipment and technical personnel; (c) travel to research meetings or training; (d) statistical and computational services including personnel and computer time. All expenses must be directly related to the proposed research career development program. 3. Ancillary Personnel Support: Salary for mentors, secretarial and administrative assistance, etc., is not allowed. 4. Facilities and Administrative Costs: These costs will be reimbursed at 8 percent of modified total direct costs. E. Evaluation: In carrying out its stewardship of human resource related programs, the NIH may begin requesting information essential to an assessment of the effectiveness of this program. Accordingly, recipients are hereby notified that they may be contacted after the completion of this award for periodic updates on various aspects of their employment history, publications, support from research grants or contracts, honors and awards, professional activities, and other information helpful in evaluating the impact of the program. F. Other Income: Fees resulting from clinical practice, professional consultation, or other comparable activities required by the research and research-related activities of this award may not be retained by the career award recipient. Such fees must be assigned to the grantee institution for disposition by any of the following methods: o The funds may be expended by the grantee institution in accordance with the NIH policy on supplementation of career award salaries and to provide fringe benefits in proportion to such supplementation. Such salary supplementation and fringe benefit payments must be within the established policies of the grantee institution. o The funds may be used for health-related research purposes. o The funds may be paid to miscellaneous receipts of the U.S. Treasury. Checks should be made payable to the Department of Health and Human Services, NIH and forwarded to the Director, Office of Financial Management, NIH, Bethesda, Maryland 20892. Checks must identify the relevant award account and reason for the payment. o Awardees may retain royalties and fees for activities such as scholarly writing, service on advisory groups, or honoraria from other institutions for lectures or seminars, provided these activities remain incidental and provided that the retention of such pay is consistent with the policies and practices of the grantee institution. Usually, funds budgeted in an NIH supported research or research training grant for the salaries or fringe benefits of individuals, but freed as a result of a career award, may not be rebudgeted. The awarding component will give consideration to approval for the use of released funds only under unusual circumstances. Any proposed retention of funds released as a result of a career award must receive prior written approval of the NIH awarding component. G. Special Leave: Leave to another institution, including a foreign laboratory may be permitted if the proposed experience is directly related to the purpose of the award. Only local, institutional approval is required if such leave does not exceed 3 months. For longer periods, prior written approval of the NIH funding component is required. To obtain prior approval, the award recipient must submit a letter to the NIH funding component describing the plan, countersigned by his or her department head and the appropriate institutional official. A copy of a letter or other evidence from the institution where the leave is to be taken must be submitted to assure that satisfactory arrangements have been made. Support from the career award will continue during such leave. Leave without award support may not exceed 12 months. Such leave requires the prior written approval of the NIH funding component and will be granted only in unusual situations. Support from other sources is permissible during the period of leave. Such leave does not reduce the total number of months of program support for which an individual is eligible. Under unusual and pressing circumstances, an awardee may submit a written request to the awarding component requesting a reduction in professional effort below 75 percent. Such requests will be considered on a case-by-case basis during the award period. In no case, will it be permissible to work at a rate of less than 50 percent effort. The nature of the circumstances requiring reduced effort might include medical conditions, disability, or pressing personal or family situations such as child or elder care. Permission to reduce the level of effort will not be approved to accommodate other sources of funding, job opportunities, clinical practice, or clinical training. In each situation, the grantee institution must submit documentation supporting the need for reduced effort along with assurance of a continuing commitment to the scientific development of the awardee. Further, the awardee must submit assurance of his or her intention to return to full-time professional effort (at least 75 percent) as soon as possible. During the period of reduced effort, the salary and other costs supported by the award will be reduced accordingly. H. Termination or Change of Institution: When a grantee institution plans to terminate an award, the NIH funding component must be notified in writing at the earliest possible time so that appropriate instructions can be given for termination. The Director of the NIH may discontinue an award upon determination that the purpose or terms of the award are not being fulfilled. In the event an award is terminated, the Director of the NIH shall notify the grantee institution and career award recipient in writing of this determination, the reasons, the effective date, and the right to appeal the decision. Awardees planning a change of institution, must submit to the funding NIH component in advance of the change a written request for transfer, countersigned by the appropriate institutional business official, describing the reasons for the change and including the new sponsor's name and biosketch. The awardee must establish in this request that the specific aims of the research program to be conducted at the new institution are within the scope of the original peer reviewed research program. Additionally, the new sponsor must have the appropriate research expertise to supervise the program and sufficient research support to ensure continuation of the research program to the end of the award. Staff within the NIH funding component will review this request and may require a review by an initial review group and/or the appropriate National Advisory Council or Board. Upon approval of this request, a new career award application must be submitted by the new institution far enough in advance of the requested effective date to permit review. The period of support requested in the new application must be no more than the time remaining within the existing award period. When a mentor at the grantee institution is to be replaced, the institution must submit a letter from the proposed mentor documenting the need for substitution, the new mentor's qualifications for supervising the program, and the level of support for the candidate's career development. The letter must also document that the specific aims of the research program will remain within the scope of the original peer reviewed research program. Staff within the NIH funding component will evaluate the request, and will notify the grantee institution of the results of the evaluation. A final progress report, invention statement, and Financial Status Report are required upon either termination of an award or relinquishment of an award in a change of institution situation. INCLUSION OF WOMEN AND MINORITIES IN RESEARCH INVOLVING HUMAN SUBJECTS It is the policy of the NIH that women and members of minority groups and their subpopulations must be included in all NIH supported biomedical and behavioral research projects involving human subjects, unless a clear and compelling rationale and justification is provided that inclusion is inappropriate with respect to the health of the subjects or the purpose of the research. This policy results from the NIH Revitalization Act of 1993 (Section 492B of Public Law 103-43). All investigators proposing research involving human subjects should read the "NIH Guidelines For Inclusion of Women and Minorities as Subjects in Clinical Research," which have been published in the Federal Register of March 28, 1994 (FR 59 14508-14513) and in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts, Vol. 23, No. 11, March 18, 1994 available on the web at the following URL address: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not94-100.html INCLUSION OF CHILDREN AS PARTICIPANTS IN RESEARCH INVOLVING HUMAN SUBJECTS It is the policy of NIH that children (i.e., individuals under the age of 21) must be included in all human subjects research, conducted or supported by the NIH, unless there are scientific and ethical reasons not to include them. This policy applies to all initial (Type 1) applications submitted for receipt dates after October 1, 1998. All investigators proposing research involving human subjects should read the "NIH Policy and Guidelines on the Inclusion of Children as Participants in Research Involving Human Subjects" that was published in the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts, March 6, 1998, and is available at the following URL address: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/not98-024.html Investigators also may obtain copies of these policies from the program staff listed under INQUIRIES. Program staff may also provide additional relevant information concerning the policy.

The Code of Federal Regulations, Title 42 Part 52, and Title 45 part 74, are applicable to this program. This program is described in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance No. 93.121. This program is not subject to the intergovernmental review requirements of Executive Order 12372 or Health Systems Agency review. The PHS strongly encourages all grant and contract recipients to provide a smoke-free workplace and promote the non-use of all tobacco products. In addition, Public Law 103-227, the Pro-Children Act of 1994, prohibits smoking in certain facilities (or in some cases, any portion of a facility) in which regular or routing education, library, day care, health care or early childhood development services are provided to children. This is consistent with the PHS mission to protect and advance the physical and mental health of the American people.
