Summary

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is planning to publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) for Mentored Career Enhancement Awards. This opportunity aims to support mid-career investigators in acquiring cross-disciplinary knowledge and skills for comparative studies of human and nonhuman primate species with differing life spans. The FOA will provide funding for experienced investigators to augment or redirect their research program by acquiring expertise in other fields related to comparative primate research and aging. It also encourages the development of collaborations with research fields that investigators do not commonly interact with. The FOA is expected to be published in June 2024, with an anticipated application due date in November 2024. The estimated total program funding is $1,500,000, and four awards are expected to be granted. The FOA will utilize the K18 Career Enhancement Award activity code and will not allow clinical trials. Potential applicants are advised to identify potential mentors and prepare well-developed career enhancement plans. Additional details of the planned FOA will be provided in the future.

Description

This Notice informs that NIA intends to publish a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) inviting applications from mid-career investigators for mentored career enhancement awards focused on cross-disciplinary training to broaden and strengthen the investigator's capability to lead future comparative studies of the factors contributing to differences in life spans between human and nonhuman primate species. The NOFO is intended to provide support for experienced investigators with expertise in human and/or nonhuman primate (NHP) studies to do the following: 1) Augment or redirect their research program by acquiring expertise in other fields related to comparative primate research and aging 2) Develop collaborations with research fields with which they do not commonly interact This Notice is being provided to allow potential applicants sufficient time to identify potential mentors and prepare well-developed career enhancement plans. The NOFO is expected to be published in June 2024 with an anticipated application due date in November 2024. These are estimated time frames, and they may change. The NOFO is expected to utilize the K18 Career Enhancement Award activity code. It is expected that the NOFO will not allow clinical trials.� Additional details of the planned NOFO are provided below.

Mentored Career Development Program for Early Stage Investigators Using Nonhuman Primate Research Models (K01 Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
National Institutes of Health
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has posted a grant opportunity titled "Mentored Career Development Program for Early Stage Investigators Using Nonhuman Primate Research Models (K01 Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed)". This grant aims to provide support and protected time for early-stage investigators to engage in intensive research-focused career development activities using nonhuman primate (NHP) models. The program is designed to increase the number of highly skilled scientists using NHP models to address complex translational biomedical research and foster the translation of outcomes into clinical applications. The grant offers up to five years of funding and requires the guidance of an experienced mentorship team with expertise in both the preclinical application of NHP models and the translation of research results. The funding opportunity is specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary study to a clinical trial. Eligible applicants include various institutions and organizations, such as Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian Serving Institutions, Faith-based or Community-based Organizations, and Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The grant has a closing date of January 7, 2026, and an award ceiling of $75,000.
