Brief Description

The purpose of the Stimulating Access to Research in Residency Transition Scholar (StARRTS) K38 Career Development program is to retain and support clinician investigators who have successfully completed the Stimulating Access to Research in Residency (StARR) R38 Program (RFA-HL-18-023) as resident-investigators. Individuals who are awarded K38 grants described in this FOA will be referred to as Transition Scholars. The intent of this FOA is to provide Transition Scholars with opportunities for additional research and career development during subsequent clinical fellowship or early career faculty appointments (as defined in Section III. 3. Additional Information on Eligibility). It is anticipated that the StARRTS K38 program will provide a pathway to retain the newly-created pool of clinician-investigators generated through the StARR R38 program. Transition Scholar grantees will receive support for continued research and career development opportunities in basic, clinical and/or translational research thereby providing enhanced potential to accelerate the transition to independent research careers.
