Purpose: 

The purpose of the KUH/NIDDK Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00) is to recruit exceptional graduate students who are recognized by their institutions for their high potential and to incentivize them to pursue a Kidney, Urologic or Hematologic (K, U, or H) postdoctoral position that ultimately positions them to become independent K, U, or H researchers. This two-phase award will facilitate completion of the doctoral dissertation and stablize the transition of highly talented Ph.D candidates from a variety of fields, including, but not limited to, engineering, statistics, data science, imaging, biochemistry and genetics into strong postdoctoral appointments that are focused on K, U or H research. It is anticipated that successful completion of this phased award will make the individual highly competitive for a subsequent NIDDK award (e.g., K99/R00, R01). Opportunities for career development activities relevant to their long-term career goals of becoming independent researchers will be provided. Graduate students who are already involved in K, U, or H research are encouraged to apply for the NIDDK F31 (PA-18-671).
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) does not allow applicants to propose to lead an independent clinical trial, but does allow applicants to propose research experience in a clinical trial led by a sponsor or co-sponsor
