Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs -- Kidney Cancer Research Program -- Physician Research Award
The Physician Research Award supports a mentored research experience to prepare physician scientists for productive careers in kidney cancer research. The mentored physician is considered the Principal Investigator (PI) of the application. This award emphasizes equally the quality of the proposed research project and the career development of the PI, which should prepare physicians for careers in basic, population science, translational, or clinical kidney cancer research. All applications for the Physician Research Award are to be written by the PI, with appropriate direction from the Mentor(s).
