The National Institute of Diabetes & Digestive & Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) is pleased to announce the release of a new funding announcement titled “The KUH Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Award (F99/K00 Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed)”. The application due dates are April 14, 2020; September 2, 2020; and March 2, 2021. Please be advised that, although not required, a letter of intent is strongly encouraged to be received by KUH 30 days prior to the application due date.
The purpose of the Kidney, Urology or Hematology (KUH) Predoctoral to Postdoctoral Fellow Transition Awards (F99/K00) is to recruit exceptional graduate students from diverse research fields to pursue postdoctoral training focused on Kidney, Urology or Hematology (K, U, or H) research. Talented graduate students from disciplines including, but not limited to, engineering, statistics, data science, imaging, biochemistry and genetics are invited to apply to this opportunity. Graduate students who are already involved in K, U, or H research are not eligible for the F99/K00 award and are instead encouraged to apply for the Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Award (NRSA) Individual Predoctoral Fellowship (Parent F31, PA-19-195). Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to contact the NIDDK Program Official prior to initiating plans for application submission.
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.
The NIDDK encourages individuals and organizations to promote and disseminate this RFA information in related newsletters, publications, or on organizational websites. To request additional information, please contact:
