NIDCD K23 awards are intended to facilitate the research independence of individuals:

  • seeking to integrate both clinical practice and research trajectories in their careers;
  • having an aggregate of two or more years of prior research experience;
  • holding or having secured positions of junior academic rank, or the equivalent in non-academic employment setting; individuals promoted to the rank of associate professor, or its equivalent, within the last two years may apply.

The NIDCD encourages beginning clinician-scientists to consider applying for one year of support through an NIDCD R03 award ( PAR-07-287 ), if needed, to demonstrate the feasibility of the research to be proposed in their K23 applications.

The NIDCD has the following special requirements for its K23 applicants:

  • To facilitate regular face-to-face contact within the mentoring relationship, the primary sponsor of the K23 shall be based at the applicant's home institution or at an institution within a reasonable distance (i.e., approximately 100 miles) of the applicant's institution.
  • The career development plan must include a graduate-level didactic course in biostatistics and research design, to be completed during the first year of the award, or provide evidence that such training was previously completed by the applicant.
  • An external advisory committee of two scientists with records of Federal research funding and of mentoring new investigators in the field of the proposed research career development, but are not mentors or collaborators of the applicant or the applicant's sponsor, shall be configured.  The purpose of the external advisory committee is to: 1) advise the awardee in attaining the goals of the career development program; and 2) to help ensure that the institution's commitment's to the terms of the award are being met.  These committee members shall commit to be available to the candidate for consultation on an as-needed basis and to site visit the awardee during Years Two and Four of the K23 award.   A report of the external advisory committee shall be incorporated into the Application for Continuation Grant (PHS Form 2590) for Years Three and Five of the award.
