Influence of ESI/NI Policy on Time to First R01


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.
