Limited Competition: NIDCR Supplements to NCATS CTSA Programs for Scholars Pursing Dental, Oral and Craniofacial Clinical and Translational Research Career Development (Admin Supp)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

This FOA is to be used to request administrative supplements for awards made to PAR-15-304 and RFA-TR-14-009 KL2 Institutional Career Development Core.

The goal of this NIDCR KL2 administrative supplement program is to enhance and to foster the participation of scholars pursuing clinical and translational research training to improve dental, oral and craniofacial health.  This program is in response to the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director’s Physician-Scientist Workforce (PSW) Working Group recommendation #9: Leverage the Existing Resources of the CTSA Program to Obtain Maximum Benefit for Training and Career Development, which questions whether this resource is being optimally utilized, encourages testing of innovative pilot programs, and encourages extending the resources to non-MD aspects of the PSW. For the full report of the Advisory Committee to the NIH Director’s PSW Working Group, see PSW Working Group Report June 2014.
