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.
|Influence of ESI/NI Policy on Time to First R01|
|K Award Termination Year||2003-2007||2008-2011|
|K08 awardees: Time to first R01, years from start of K award; mean ± SEM (n)||6.3 ± 0.4 (46)||4.9 ± 0.2 (34)|
|K23 awardees: Time to first R01, years from start of K award; mean ± SEM (n)||6.5 ± 0.5 (22)||4.5 ± 0.3 (22)|
