The NIH national Rehabilitation Research Resource to Enhance Clinical Trials (REACT), based at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), invites letters of intent for pilot studies that address novel scientific questions related to medical rehabilitation and that will lead to more definitive clinical trials.
This opportunity will support 3 PCOR K-Scholars for a period of two years to build capacity for the conduct of PCOR to enhance patient-centered care. The mission of the K-Scholars program is to prepare independent investigators to pursue careers focused on translating research evidence into practice and to evaluate the benefits and harms of different strategies and interventions on patient outcomes. For the two years of support, the K12 will provide up to $90,000 towards salary annually. Selected candidates must commit a minimum of 75% of time to research and career development.
The intent of this pilot program is to attract both international and U.S.-based early-stage investigators from outside the field of HIV research to help address key scientific questions in HIV research, including emerging issues of long-term survival with HIV infection, prevention of HIV transmission, and research toward a cure. This program is targeting those who would be new to the field.
NIH-funded training grant fellowships are available for research training in the areas broadly related to kidney diseases. Trainees will pursue a one to two-year research program in the laboratory of an established basic or clinical research scientist, supplemented with training in advanced biostatistics and bioethics courses.
