The Office of Naval Research (ONR) Young Investigator Program (YIP) seeks to identify and support academic scientists and engineers who are in their first or second full-time tenure-track appointment, have begun their first appointment on or after 01 Nov 2010, and who show exceptional promise for doing creative research. The competition for YIP awards continues to be intense. In 2015, over 380 proposals were received resulting in 36 Young Investigator awards.

New NIH Program for New and Early Career Researchers

Jul 22nd, 2015 -- dmbsrs

The National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) has just expanded the pilot of its experiment in funding science. The new model, called the Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award, or MIRA, supports investigators’ overall research programs through a single, unified grant rather than individual project grants.  The MIRA is a grant to provide support for all of the research in an investigator's laboratory that falls within the mission of NIGMS.  The goal of MIRA is to increase the efficiency and efficacy of NIGMS funding.  It is anticipated that the new mechanism will:

NIH Implements New Biosketch Format
