Funding News Flashes

Updated Definition of "New Investigator" for Grant Applications:

Check "Yes" in the "New Investigator" box only if the principal investigator has not previously competed successfully as such on any NIH-supported research project other than a small grant (R03), an Academic Research Enhancement Award (R15), an exploratory/developmental grant (R21), a Shannon Award (R55), an NIH High Priority, Short-Term Project Award (R56), or mentored career development awards for persons at the beginning of their research career (K01, K08, K22, K23, K25, K99/R00). If the principal investigator/program director is not a new investigator, check "No." Current or past recipients of Independent Scientist and other non-mentored career awards (K02, K05, K24, and K26) are not considered new investigators. When Multiple Principal Investigators are proposed, all PIs must meet the definition of New Investigator for this box to be checked.
