This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) encourages applications for short-term mentored career enhancement (K18) awards in dental, oral and craniofacial (DOC) research with a focus on behavioral and social sciences, and on genetics, genomics, bioinformatics and computational biology research. The intent of this program is to provide mid-career and senior investigators with short-term training in the theories, tools, methods or approaches of another scientific area, in order to enhance their existing research program. Two categories of candidates are targeted: (a) established DOC research investigators who seek training with investigators from another field, in order to enrich their existing DOC research program; and (b) established investigators in other fields who seek training with DOC research investigators in order to facilitate the introduction of DOC research into an existing research program.
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is designed specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary clinical trial. Applicants to this FOA are permitted to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a mentor or co-mentor.
