The NCI Transition Career Development Award (K22 - Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed)

Brief Description

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) represents the continuation of an NCI program to facilitate the transition of investigators in mentored, non-independent cancer research positions to independent faculty cancer research positions. This goal is achieved by providing protected time through salary and research support for the initial 3 years of the first independent tenure-track faculty position, or its equivalent, beginning at the time when the candidate starts a tenure-track faculty position.

This 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 study to a clinical trial. Applicants proposing a clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or an ancillary study to an ongoing clinical trial as lead investigator, should apply to the companion FOAs (PAR-21-111 or PAR-21-318).
