Mentored Research Scientist Career Development Award in Tobacco Regulatory Research (K01 - Independent Clinical Trial Required)

Grants to USA and territories principal investigators affiliated with nonprofits, IHEs, for-profits, local, state, and Tribal governments, school districts, and organizations for research projects on tobacco regulations. Required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to support researchers involved in a clinical trial feasibility study, an independent clinical trial, or a separate ancillary study to an existing trial, as part of their research and career development.
The objective of the NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide salary and research support for a sustained period of “protected time” (3-5 years) for intensive research career development, under the guidance of an experienced mentor, or sponsor in the biomedical, behavioral or clinical sciences leading to research independence. The expectation is that, through this sustained period of research career development and training, awardees will launch independent research careers and become competitive for new research project grant (e.g., R01) funding.Investigators who have the quality and breadth of training necessary to conduct cutting-edge research related to the regulation, manufacture, distribution and marketing of tobacco products are needed. All applicants responding to this FOA are expected to propose research that responds to the priorities of the FDA Center for Tobacco Products as outlined in the Program Scope and Research Objectives.Program Scope and Research ObjectivesScience will inform the FDA in regulation of the manufacture, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products to reduce the public health toll from tobacco product use in the United States. This FOA is focused on the following eight FDA CTP scientific interest areas. Only applications proposing research relevant to one or more of these eight areas will be considered responsive to this FOA. FDA encourages research studies to include, where appropriate to the research question, populations of special relevance, including (but not limited to): youth, socioeconomically disadvantaged populations, racial/ethnic minorities, underserved rural populations, people with co-morbid mental health conditions and/or substance use disorders, military/veteran populations, pregnant women or women of reproductive age, and sexual and gender minorities.Applicants will be expected to identify how the specific population(s) of interest is important to the research question, considering the impact on overall population health. Health disparity considerations can be incorporated into all the topics below.Scientific Interest Areas:Chemistry and EngineeringToxicityAddictionHealth EffectsBehaviorCommunicationsMarketing InfluencesImpact AnalysisFor more information on these interest areas and a list of special considerations, see the RFP on the URL For Full Text link below.
