A 2-year structured pilot program providing physician scientists with intensive mentorship and opportunities to apply for their first independent, federally funded awards (K08, K23) or other equivalent external career development awards. This program is supported by the Provost’s and Executive Vice Chancellor’s Research Growth Fund initiative, and is administered by the SOM Research Development Unit (RDU) with oversight by the SOM Associate Dean of Research Development and the Vice Deans of Clinical and Basic Research. Interested parties should contact the Associate Dean for Research or Dr Daniela Bota.

The SOM Office of Research invites faculty to submit applications for a new pilot program, the NIH Resubmission Program (NIHRP). Designed in part in response to a recent report from NIH on funded resubmission applications, and loosely patterned after the highly successful UCI NIH Boot Camp, this opportunity provides in-depth and organized support for proposal writing and revisions, pre-review and other resources within a small team structure to facilitate the preparation of competitive –A1 or restructured –A0 applications.
