Funding Opportunity Description: The purpose of this NIH Mentored Research Scientist Development Award (K01) is to provide salary and research support to investigators who are within ten years of completing their degree or residency training. Research and mentorship must be in the field of HIV/AIDS vaccine development, using nonhuman primates (NHPs) as pre-clinical models. These awards will provide 3 years of support for intensive research career development under the guidance of an experienced mentorship team, with expertise in both development of NHP vaccine models and in translation of the results of investigations performed in NHPs to work in humans. The expectation is through this sustained period of research career development and training, awardees will launch independent research careers and become competitive for new research project grant (e.g., R01) funding. This funding initiative addresses two objectives of the FY 2016 National Institutes of Health Trans-NIH Plan for HIV-Related Research: 1) To explore new HIV vaccine approaches, and 2) To develop opportunities for new investigators in the HIV vaccine field, enabling them to translate promising preclinical vaccine studies in NHPs into human clinical trials.
