The National Institutes for Health recently launch its Next Generation Researchers Initiative to support the development of research programs for early stage and mid-career investigators.
NIH has increased the number of R01 equivalent awards awarded to these investigators. A large portion of the grants scored at the 25th percentile will be funded.
We encourage all early stage and mid-career investigators with relevant research to check out upcoming R01 funding opportunities. Here are a couple of additional resources about the initiave that may be of interest to you:
