NLM Career Development Award in Biomedical Informatics and Data Science (K01)
National Library of Medicine
Application Receipt/Submission Date(s): Standard dates apply, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization. All types of non-AIDS applications allowed for this funding opportunity announcement are due on these dates.
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Career Development Award in Biomedical Informatics (K01) is intended to provide support for promising junior investigators as they launch their research careers in biomedical informatics research and data science. NLM supports research career development in healthcare/clinical informatics, translational bioinformatics, clinical research informatics and public health informatics. We define informatics as the intersection of computer science, information science, data science and social/behavioral sciences with one or more biomedical application domains. Application domains of interest include health care delivery and consumer health, translation of basic biological research to health outcomes, population medicine and public health, and the organization, analysis and use of biomedical big data. Regardless of the application domain, the research career focus should be informatics. The award is intended to promote the career development of informatics researchers who intend to make a long term commitment to biomedical informatics research. http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/pa-files/PAR-16-204.html
