The Mentored Quantitative Career Development Award (K25) supports the career development of investigators with quantitative scientific and engineering backgrounds outside of biology or medicine who have made a commitment to focus their research endeavors on behavioral or biomedical research (basic or clinical). The target candidates are research-oriented scientists with experience at the junior faculty (early to mid level of assistant professor or research assistant professor ranks). This award provides up to five years of support for a plan of supervised study and research with a mentor with extensive behavioral or biomedical research experience in order to integrate their quantitative expertise with biomedicine and develop into productive investigators.
