Stimulating Access to Research in Residency (StARR) (R38)

The purpose of this program is to recruit and retain outstanding, postdoctoral-level health professionals who have demonstrated potential and interest in pursuing careers as clinician-investigators. To address the growing need for this critical component of the research workforce, this funding opportunity seeks applications from institutional programs that can provide outstanding mentored research opportunities for Resident-Investigators  and foster their ability to  transition to individual career development research awards. The program will support institutions to provide support for up to 2 years of research conducted by Resident-Investigators in structured programs for clinician-investigators with defined program milestones.   

Only one application per institution is allowed.  Anyone interested in submitting an application should send his or her NIH biosketch and a brief summary (one-two pages) of the proposed program to Dr. Michelle Broido, Associate Vice Chancellor for Biomedical Research, by September 15, 2017.  These should be sent to Dr. Broido c/o Ms. Selena Crawford,
