Grants awarded by NCI under this announcement will be funded as Howard Temin Pathway to Independence Awards in Cancer Research.

This announcement will replace PAR-03-104 upon its expiration on July 2, 2006.

The candidate's research proposal must include research on the etiology, pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis, control and treatment of HUMAN cancer. The proposed research may involve model systems, including animal models. However, at some point during the grant period, the proposed research must include work on human cancer (includes human cancer cells or tissues).

Candidates must be able to identify an individual with extensive experience in human cancer research who can serve as a mentor for the initial mentored phase of this award.

In the mentored phase, NCI will support salaries up to $75,000, plus applicable fringe benefits, and up to $30,000 for research support costs for a 12-month budget period.

The NIDCR welcomes applications from postdoctoral scientists seeking to establish an independent research career in social, behavioral, biomedical, and biological science fields relevant to the NIDCR Strategic Plan. Applicants must demonstrate a commitment to a career in oral health research, and funding priority will be given to applicants holding a dental degree.

In addition, although previous K awardees are not generally eligible to apply for a second K award, the NIDCR will accept K99/R00 applications from dentist scientists who have used a previous NIDCR-funded K08 or K23 award to earn the PhD degree. Such applicants must have completed the PhD before applying. All other eligibility requirements and conditions of the K99/R00 mechanism apply.

Research projects proposed should have a defined focus in the environmental health sciences, and be responsive to the mission of the NIEHS, which is distinguished from that of other Institutes by its support of research programs seeking to understand how environmental exposures alter biologic processes and affect the risk of either disease development or the distribution of disease in populations. Examples of environmental exposures relevant to the mission of the NIEHS include industrial chemicals or manufacturing by-products, metals, pesticides, herbicides, air pollutants and other inhaled toxicants, particulates or fibers, fungal or bacterially derived toxins due to ambient exposures. Agents considered to belong to the mission area of other NIH Institutes include: alcohol, chemotherapeutic agents, ionizing radiation, drugs of abuse, pharmaceuticals, smoking (except second-hand smoke), and infectious or parasitic agents, except when these are disease co-factors with an environmental toxicant exposure to produce the biological effect. Projects focusing on ecology, ecologic or microbial biotransformation, ecologic biodegradation and remediation, ecological monitoring, wildlife and fisheries biology or studies of sentinel species, geochemistry and other ecologically based environmental studies are not considered responsive to this Program Announcement. Research in veterinary medicine where the endpoint is animal health or in food science is also not responsive. Proposals for research in exposure assessment should concentrate on exposure biology, which is at the interface of exposures and human health, and research centered on biomarkers as indicators of body burden, pathophysiological changes, or inception/progression of disease, rather than environmental measurement of ambient contact or point of exposure.

NLM supports research career development in biomedical informatics and bioinformatics. We define informatics as the intersection of computer, information and behavioral sciences with one or more application domains. Application domains of interest include health care delivery, basic biomedical research, clinical and translational research, public health and others. Whatever the application domain, the research career focus must be informatics. Preference will be given to applicants who received their informatics training at one of NLM's university-based training programs in Biomedical Informatics.

The Fogarty International Center (FIC), the international component of the NIH, addresses global health challenges through innovative and collaborative research and training programs and supports and advances the NIH mission through international partnerships.  In this regard, the FIC will give strong preference to applications for the NIH Pathway to Independence Award Program from U.S. scientists who show evidence of and a long-term commitment to a career in global health through collaborations with scientists from low- and middle-income countries.  Any application accepted by FIC from foreign scientists would have to involve research considered to be of high priority to global health and also involve collaborations with scientists from low- and middle-income countries.
