Description: Purpose: The purpose of the NLM Independent Career Development Award for Biomedical Informatics (K22) program is to facilitate the transition of investigators from the mentored to the independent stage of their careers by providing "protected time" for newly independent investigators to develop and receive support for their initial research programs. The award applies to biomedical informaticians who are pursuing research in clinical informatics, public health informatics or translational informatics. Preference will be given to candidates who received their informatics training at one of NLMs university-based training programs in biomedical informatics. Mechanism of Support: This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will utilize the NIH Career Transition Award (K22) mechanism. Funds Available and Anticipated Number of Awards: The total amount to be awarded by the NLM and the number of awards will depend upon the quality and merit of applications received and the availability of funds.
