  1. Academic Careers in Lung Stem Cells/Cell Therapies/Bioengineering. Sara Lin, Ph.D. Program Director Developmental Biology and Pediatrics Division of Lung Diseases NHLBI September 9, 2013

  2. NIH Mission • Acquire new knowledge leading to better health • Support research • Train early career investigators • Communicate research results to the medical community and the public

  3. NHLBI Competing Research Project Grant Applications FY 2002 to 2012 Source NHLBI Fact Book FY2012

  4. Overview • Plan: Find Your Path • Focus: Scientific Area and Questions • Act: Submit Your Best Application • Resources

  5. Plan: Find Your Path TRAINING Pre-BAC Institutional Training Grant (T34) Institutional Training Grant (T32) GRAD/MED STUDENT Individual NRSA Fellowship (F30/31) Institutional Training Grant (T32) POST-DOCTORAL Individual NRSA Fellowship (F32) CAREER Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) Mentored Res. Sci. Dev. Award (K01) Mentored Clin. Sci. Dev. Award (K08) Mentored Patient-Oriented RCDA (K23) Early Development Ind. Researcher Res Grants: R01/ESI

  7. Pathways to Independence Award (K99/R00) • Five years of support in two phases: • 1-2 years of mentored postdoctoral research • 3 years of independent support (R00) contingent on securing an independent research position • 4 years limit (starting Feb. 12, 2014 ) • Open to MDs or PhDs in postdoctoral status • US citizenship is NOT required

  8. Transitioning from a K99 to R00 Award and Beyond – NIH Data 190 K99 grants were awarded by NIH in FY2007 NHLBI funded 39 K99 awards in FY 12 (30% success rate) 167 PhDs; 12 MD/PhDs; 10 MDs; 1 other 94.2% of K99 awardees transitioned to R00 78.9% applied for R01s, with 33.7% receiving R01 Median age at time of R01 award – 37 yrs of age

  9. Early Stage Investigator (ESI) http://grants.nih.gov/grants/new_investigators/index.htm#policies PI who first qualifies as a new investigator AND is within 10 years of completing the terminal research degree or is within 10 years of completing medical residency (or equivalent) For multiple PIs, all must meet requirements for ESI status As a subset of new investigators, ESIs are also eligible for the shortened review cycle option

  10. NHLBI-Early Stage Investigators FY2013 • Type 1 R01 applications (New) • Band I: 5% above Payline • Band II: 6% -10% above Payline (expedited rev) • # of years approved by IRG will not be reduced • Type 2 R01 applications (First renewal) • 5% above Payline

  11. Focus: Scientific Area and Questions Grant Awards in Lung Repair Regeneration New Continued Overall NHLBI Funding

  12. Scientific Programs Supported by NHLBI • Lung Repair and Regeneration Consortium (LRRC) • https://www.lungrepair.org/ • Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium (PCBC) • http://www.progenitorcells.org/ • Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network (CCTRN) • https://ccct.sph.uth.tmc.edu/cctrn/

  14. Progenitor Cell Biology Consortium • http://www.progenitorcells.org/

  15. Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network • https://ccct.sph.uth.tmc.edu/cctrn/

  16. Recent RFAs Supported by NHLBI • RFA-HL-11-025 New Strategies for Growing 3D Tissues (R01) • RFA-HL-11-006 Next Generation Genetic Association Studies (U01) • RFA-HL-14-007, -008, -009 Molecular Atlas of Lung Development (U01)

  17. Develop a Compelling Scientific Question • Why is your research IMPORTANT and TIMELY, and what is it going to ACCOMPLISH? • How will your research impact health, and make a real difference? • Does your research fill a gap? Is it innovative? • Clearly define your scientific objective and the fundamental advance your research will make • Focus • Be productive (publish!)

  18. Get your Application Funded • Be explicit in your application: don’t make assumptions about the peer review(ers). State feasibility. • Identify the Institute(s) best aligned with your scientific goals, and talk with a program officer before submitting an application. • Peer-review determines the merit of applications, not an Institute or program officer. • Get it right the first time: don’t rely on a revision • Be persistent

  19. Mentor/Mentoring • Science & Career Development • Track Record • Availability • Style and Philosophy • Not just ONE individual • Your mentor should read your proposal • You should give your mentor sufficient time to read your proposal (weeks, not days)
