Opportunity PAR-08-033: The goals of NIH-supported career development programs are to help ensure that diverse pools of highly trained scientists are available in adequate numbers and in appropriate research areas to address the Nation's biomedical, behavioral, and clinical research needs.The focus of this FOA is limited to health disparities related to aging.For purposes of this funding opportunity, eligible individuals are applicants who have been determined by the grantee institution to be committed to a career in health disparities research related to aging and who are members of or knowledgeable about health disparity population groups.Nationally, health disparity population groups include but are not limited to African Americans, Hispanic Americans, American Indians/Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, the medically underserved, low socioeconomic populations and rural populations.This FOA is related to the NIA Health Disparities Strategic Plan and will help to build capacity in aging and health disparity research.See: http://www.nia.nih.gov/AboutNIA/StrategicPlan/DirectorsMessageHD.htm. The plan is updated annually and makes it clear that health disparity populations are minority populations, low socioeconomic status (SES) population groups, and rural populations groups.Homeless, Medicaid, medically indigent, migrant and disabled population groups may also be included.The goals of the Strategic Plan are to reduce and eliminate health disparities, expand minority health and health disparity research education and training opportunities for underrepresented scientists (individuals from racial and ethnic groups, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds), and to provide information to these groups about treatment, prevention, and management of disease. The most striking disparities in the burden of disease in the United States are experienced by African Americans, Hispanics, American Indians, Alaska Natives, Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders, Asians, disabled individuals, and individuals from low socioeconomic and rural population groups.Scientists from these groups are strongly encouraged to apply as they are well positioned to conduct research aimed at redressing health disparities.Applications will be supported through the NIH Mentored Research Scientists Development Award Mechanism (K01): http://grants2.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PA-06-001.html.The K01 application may be submitted on behalf of the candidate (principal investigator) by any domestic for-profit or non-profit institution/organization, or public or private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals and laboratories. Foreign institutions are not eligible to apply. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or non-citizen nationals, or individuals lawfully admitted for permanent residence, who hold a research or health-professional doctoral degree or its equivalent and can commit a minimum of 75% of full-time professional effort conducting research and relevant career development activities specified in the application. Receipt of prior support may affect eligibility. The candidate must demonstrate and justify the need for a three, four, or five-year period of additional supervised research experience.Planning, direction, and execution of the proposed career development program and research project will be the responsibility of the candidate and his/her mentor.The proposed career development experience must be on health disparities and aging research and must be sufficiently new to the candidate and/or one in which an additional supervised research experience will substantially augment the candidates research capability. The National Institute on Aging intends to commit up to $500,000 in FY 2008 for awards in response to this FOA. An applicant may request a project period of 3-5 years and a budget for direct costs of up to $150,000 per year. The total amount to be awarded and the number of anticipated awards will depend upon the quality, duration, and costs of the applications received as determined by peer review process, available funds and program priorities.The candidate for this K01 award may not concurrently apply for or have an award pending for another NIH career development award.Up to two resubmissions of an application will be accepted. Renewals will not be allowed.
