This award assists individuals beginning independent research careers in translational medicine and therapeutics at the faculty level.
Eligibility: Those holding the academic rank of Assistant Professor (or Research Assistant Professor) within a tenure track (or Research track) appointment, or Instructor, if eligible to apply for independent research funding by their institution, are eligible to apply for these research starter grants, providing their proposed research is neither directly nor indirectly already being subsidized to any significant degree by an extramural support mechanism. Individuals receiving only intramural funding or start-up funding from their institution are eligible to apply for RSG awards. Applicants will be judged on the scientific merits of the proposed research, and on the degree of need and fit within the scope and goals of the program. The program is not intended for those in postdoctoral training programs. However, individuals in postdoctoral training scheduled to conclude and who will hold an academic appointment by January 1, 2018, or the start of the grant period, may apply. All applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
