The Paul B. Beeson Emerging Leaders Career Development Award in Aging (K76 Independent Clinical Trial Not Allowed) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) supports early-stage physicians and other health professional investigators with a commitment to aging and/or aging-related diseases. Unlike other mentored K awards, candidates for this award must have received competitively awarded research support as a PD/PI at the faculty level or have otherwise leveraged faculty-level research support to develop an independent line of research. They must show evidence of leadership in the clinical or research domain. This grant is specifically for applicants proposing research that does not involve leading an independent clinical trial, a clinical trial feasibility study, or a separate ancillary clinical trial. Candidates must also have a research or clinical doctoral degree, including but not limited to PhD, MD, DO, DDS, DMD, OD, DC, PharmD, Doctor of Naturopathy (ND), and DVM. The funding provides up to 225,000 USD in direct costs per year for up to 5 years.
