This supplement is meant to facilitate a partnership between a clinician-scientist and a quantitative researcher to conduct a translational science research project. The project is expected to be jointly conceived and require significant contribution from both candidates. The quantitative research should have an expressed interest or history of conducting translational science and currently hold the position of tenure or research track assistant professor a similar faculty position. The partnering clinician-scientist should hold an M.D. or M.D./Ph.D or equivalent degree and should also have a demonstrated interest or history in conducting translational research. The supplement will provide salary and research support to the NIBIB Translational Research Scholar who is expected to devote a minimum of 9 person-months (75% of full-time professional effort) to this project. The clinician-scientist is expected to be appointed to the parent KL2 at the time of application or have plans to be appointed to the program if the supplement is funded.
A new funding opportunity will be released in the near future.
