Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award (K25) : NIDDK

Mentored Quantitative Research Career Development Award (K25)

  • The K25 award is intended to provide engineers, mathematicians, computer scientists, physicists, and others with an advanced degree in a 'quantitative' discipline the opportunity to develop into cross-cutting investigators in the biomedical sciences. Such individuals are encouraged to identify a mentor in a discipline of interest to the NIDDK and develop an application that will incorporate both didactic coursework as well as a research project to take advantage of the applicant's background as well as the mentor's expertise.
  • The NIDDK will provide up to $90,000 for salary, the appropriate fringe benefits, and up to $40,000 for research support for each of the five years of a K25 award.
  • NIDDK does not issue a separate announcement for this program.
