The purpose of the Mentored Patient-Oriented Research Career Development Award
(K23) is to support the career development of clinicians who intend to engage in
patient-oriented research that involves the application of the knowledge, tools,
technologies and approaches of genomics and proteomics to the study of diseases
in an effort to develop effective therapeutic interventions. This award will
provide support for three to five years of supervised study and research for
clinically trained professionals who plan to become independent, productive
clinical investigators focusing on patient-oriented research.

This K23 award has several important features: (1) it requires an integrated
clinical-laboratory research project that directly involves patients affected by
the disease being studied so that awardees can develop skills in both clinical
research and basic science, i.e. bench-to-bedside research; (2) it emphasizes
career development and a research program that focuses on developing effective
therapeutic interventions; projects that involve pre-therapeutic research will
also be considered if the applicant can make a strong case that the knowledge
gained from the study will provide a clear pathway toward the development of
therapeutic interventions; and (3) it requires significant utilization of
genomic and proteomic tools and technologies in the research project.

NHGRI: This initiative is consistent with the NHGRI's new vision for the future
of genomics research (http://www.genome.gov/11006873) which includes translating
the information and resources generated by the Human Genome Project into medical
value and is responsive to the recommendations of the NIH Director's panel on
Clinical Research (http://www.nih.gov/news/crp/97report/) and the Institute of
Medicine's Committee on Addressing Career paths for Clinical Research

ORD: Under the Rare Diseases Act of 2002, the office has a legislative mandate
to support training in clinical research in rare diseases.

NIDA: The institute is interested in the application of genomic and proteomic
tools and technologies in pursuit of therapeutic interventions in drug addiction
and drug abuse.

The NHGRI's Division of Intramural Research in Bethesda, MD, has a companion
program, Physician Scientist Development Program, for clinicians who wish to
conduct their research at the National Institutes of Health. To learn more
about this program, please visit this website:

Individuals with a clinical degree who are interested in further career
development in biomedical research that is not patient-oriented, should refer to
the NIH-wide Mentored Clinical Scientist Career Development (K08) Award (see
http://grants.nih.gov/training/careerdevelopmentawards.htm on the NIH website
for details). Individuals who are interested in patient-oriented research and
wish to 1) study the mechanisms of human disease, 2) conduct clinical trials,
3) develop new technologies, or 4) develop therapeutic interventions that do
not use genomic or proteomic technologies should refer to the Mentored Patient-
Oriented Research Career Development (K23) Award (see
