Mentored Career Development Awards

Plus Sign   Outcomes for K08 and K23 Awardees

In May of 2012, NINDS completed an examination of several outcome and demographic measurements for NINDS K08 and K23 awardees. The specific cohort of awardees used is cited on each table.

Three outcome measures were examined:

  1. Obtained an NIH R01 - the primary goal of the mentored K award is to develop a strong independent research program supported by NIH funding.
  2. Obtained significant independent funding from any source (e.g. NIH, other U.S. Gov't., private foundation, pharmaceutical/biotech, etc.).
  3. Published a peer reviewed original research paper (excludes reviews and case reports) between January 2010 and May 2012. This metric was used as an indicator of who was still involved in research two to seven years after the termination of his/her K award, regardless of funding activity.

In addition, we examined the impact of the NINDS K02 on R01 success among K08 and K23 awardees. The NINDS K02 is awarded to independent investigators who, following a period of successful mentored training, need additional skills, knowledge and preliminary data to compete successfully for an R01. 

Finally, in late 2007, NIH instituted a policy that required that a certain number of early stage investigators (ESI) and/or new investigators (NI) obtain R01s. The result of this mandate is that paylines have been higher for ESI/NI investigators than for established investigators. We looked at how this change in policy influenced "time to first R01" for NINDS K08 and K23 awardees.

Plus Sign   Outcomes for Pediatric Neurologist and Neurosurgeon K Awardees

In November of 2012, NINDS completed an examination of several outcome and demographic measurements for pediatric neurologist and neurosurgeon K02, K08, and K23 awardees. The specific cohort is cited in each table.

Three outcome measures were examined:

  1. Obtained an NIH R01 - the primary goal of the mentored K award is to develop a strong independent research program supported by NIH funding.
  2. Obtained significant independent funding from any source (e.g. NIH, other U.S. Gov't., private foundation, pharmaceutical/biotech, etc.).
  3. Published a peer reviewed original research paper (excludes reviews and case reports) between January 2010 and November 2012. This metric was used as an indicator of who was still involved in research after termination of his/her K award, regardless of funding activity.
