What's new

K99/R00 NIH Pathway to Independence Award (Parent K99/R00) reissued

Multiple participating institutes
The NIH has just reissued this K99/R00 program announcement (replaced PAR 15-083) and changed the expiration date to May 8, 2016. Therefore, the remaining Standard K99 deadline is Feb. 12, 2016 and the remaining AIDS-related K99 deadline is May 7, 2016.
NOTE: Given the Feb. 12th deadline, if you don’t have an application that is already in process, please plan on submitting your application for a future standard K99 deadline (likely to be June 12 and Oct. 12) when the NIH reissues a future K99/R00. K award grantsgov computer lab sessions will be offered prior to those deadlines.

STEP 4: Call the NIH Scientific Program Officer

Once you find a program announcement and an institute you think might apply to your research:
You are strongly encouraged to call the NIH institute scientific program officer listed on the NIH program announcement to discuss your eligibility and your research before you begin your application. The NIH program officials will help you determine if you are considering the correct institute (i.e., NCI, NHLBI) and program announcement (K01, K08, etc.) If there are multiple participating institutes: see the NIH institute table of contacts for eligibility, institute-specific criteria, and contact persons.

STEP 5:
Sign up for one 3 hour NIH K Award Grantsgov Computer Lab Session
see below >> for sessions that are currently available.
A list of 3-hour computer lab grants.gov sessions are offered before each standard deadline. The lab is equipped with a PC for each student. Participants are able to download and work on their application forms, and learn about internal Stanford procedures and NIH policies. These courses are conducted by Research Process Managers (RPMs) from the Research Management Group (RMG) and are available for Stanford researchers and are RECOMMENDED for ALL K Award applicants.

STEP 6: Alert your institutional representative about your plans to submit a K award:
School of Medicine PIs:
Research Process Manager (RPM) Assignments:
you are encouraged to contact your Research Process Manager (RPM >>) asap (at least 3-4 weeks) prior to submitting a proposal so your RPM can begin to build your budget and help with other aspects of your applications.

K Award-Grants.gov Computer Lab Training Sessions 

Required training for all postdoctoral fellows and optional for Instructors and faculty who are submitting NIH K series applications.

How will this lab session help me?
We will be downloading your REAL NIH K Series application and completing some of the administrative sections in these hands-on lab sessions. This training is completely web based. We will also be downloading and completing required Stanford-specific internal documents. Research Process Managers (RPM) from the Research Management Group (RMG) will be on hand to assist each of you with your actual application.

Who can sign up for these sessions?
Grantsgov K Award computer lab sessions will be offered for those individuals who are submitting applications for the next standard K Career Development Award deadline and the next standard resubmission deadline.

How do I register?

Register via STARS in AXESS. Search using "grants", then select "DOR-1219")
Problems with registration? Please send an email to Catalina Verdu-Cano at cverduca@stanford.edu in the Office of the Vice Provost and Dean of Research


FAQ's
1. If I sign up for the computer lab session, am I commited to submit an application for the next standard deadline?

No, taking the class is not a commitment to submit. Often, attendees delay submitting their proposal until the next cycle. And, those same attendees who delay often choose to attend a second time closer to their deadline.


2. Can we bring our own iPad/laptop to the course to fill out electronic forms?

The lab is equipped with a PC for each student and we will upload the application to the Stanford eSUBMIT system before the end of the session. The eSUBMIT system is an online system which allows you to download your application from any location with an internet connection and a SuNET ID.

3. Will I need to bring my cell phone or tablet so I can acces the 2-step authentication code during the session?

Yes. Please bring your cell phone or tablet to the session so you can acess your two step authentication code.
Per this IRT webpage >>: This type of authentication is required to access Stanford systems that have higher than normal levels of security, such as critical business or infrastructure systems.

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to develop of a cadre of talented scientists prepared and willing to take an active leadership role in transformative change that will lead to improved health care outcomes.
Emerging leaders are clinically trained (primarily physician) early-stage investigators who have begun to establish research careers and have shown signs of leadership potential who will use this award to further develop the tools, skills and resources to have a significant impact in their field of expertise.
The National Institute on Aging is pursuing this initiative to recruit talented new investigators who have begun to establish research programs and through this award will be ready to assume leadership roles in their field of expertise and well poised to change theory, practice and health outcomes related to the health of older individuals. Unlike other mentored K awards candidates for this award must have received competitively awarded research support as a PD/PI at the faculty level and have had prior leadership responsibilities in the clinical or research domain.
Application receipt deadline: Feb. 19, 2016

NIH K99/R00

 


NIH Pathway to Independence Award (Parent K99/R00) PA-16-077 (reissued**)
Multiple participating institutes
This program is designed to facilitate a timely transition of outstanding postdoctoral researchers with a research and/or clinical doctorate degree from mentored, postdoctoral research positions to independent, tenure-track or equivalent faculty positions. The program will provide independent NIH research support during this transition in order to help awardees to launch competitive, independent research careers.
Individuals who need a longer period of mentored career development before they are prepared to begin the transition to research
independence should consider the K08 or K23 program
**PLEASE NOTE: new expiration date:
The NIH has just reissued this K99/R00 program announcement (replaced PAR 15-083) and changed the expiration date to May 8, 2016. Therefore, the remaining Standard K99 deadline is Feb. 12, 2016 and the remaining AIDS-related K99 deadline is May 7, 2016.
NOTE: Given the Feb. 12th deadline, if you don’t have an application that is already in process, please plan on submitting your application for a future standard K99 deadline (likely to be June 12 and Oct. 12) when the NIH reissues a future K99/R00.

K99/R00 Citizenship- eligibility

For most K awards U.S. citizenship or permanent residency is a requirement. However, the K99/R00 award is the only one that permits non-citizens/permanent residents to apply. For non-U.S. citizen/permanent residents, the applicant U.S. institution for each phase of the application (K99 or R00) is responsible for determining and documenting in the application that the applicant investigator’s visa will allow him or her to remain in this country long enough to: (a) transition to an independent research career in the U.S. during the proposed mentored (K99) phase and/or (b) be productive on the research project in the U.S. for the duration of the proposed independent research (R00) phase.

Visas: Per clarification from the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs, foreign registered postdoctoral fellows are here on J-1, H-1B/TN visas. Individuals with these J-1, H-1B/TN visas may be eligible to apply for the K99/R00 award as long as their departments document in their application, per the guidelines above, that their visas will allow them to remain in the country during the proposed mentored K99 mentored phase here at Stanford and be productive on the research project in the U.S. for the duration of the proposed independent research (R00) phase.

Candidates are strongly encouraged to consult with the scientific/research contact person listed in the announcement prior to the submission of an application to discuss eligibility.
