NIA Research and Entrepreneurial Development Immersion (REDI): Mentored Entrepreneurial Career Development Award (K01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Funding Agency:
National Institutes of Health

The purpose of the NIA Research and Entrepreneurial Development Immersion (REDI): Mentored Entrepreneurial Career Development Award is to provide support and protected time (three to five years) for an intensive, supervised career development experience in the biomedical, behavioral, or clinical sciences leading to research independence. This specific K01 Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) includes entrepreneurial training and career development opportunities for early-career academic scientists as part of its translational research and supervised career development activities. This program will provide support and protected time for a broad set of supervised career development activities to prepare awardees for a multitude of career options including research and teaching faculty, as well as entrepreneurial, industry, science policy, and research administration positions. Entrepreneurship training and the research activities proposed would both be considered major components of the award. NIA invites K01 applications from experienced postdoctoral (two years minimum) and/or recently appointed junior faculty (usually with a Ph.D. degree) in biomedical, social, or behavioral sciences who are interested in entrepreneurial training and are pursuing careers in research areas supported by NIA.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is designed specifically for candidates proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary clinical trial. Under this FOA, candidates are permitted to propose a research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor.
