K 38 Scholar Award Opportunity

Utah StARR encourages all scholars to consider applying for the NIH K38 award "Stimulating Access to Research in Residency Transition Scholar" (StARRTS) after graduating from our program. This Career Development program's main purpose is to "provide Transition Scholars with opportunities for additional research and career development during subsequent clinical fellowship or early career faculty appointments... It is anticipated that the StARRTS K38 program will provide a pathway to retain the newly-created pool of clinician-investigators generated through the StARR R38 program. Transition Scholar grantees will receive support for continued research and career development opportunities in basic, clinical and/or translational research thereby providing enhanced potential to accelerate the transition to independent research careers."
