It is expected that these investigators will continue to provide leadership in their research area. Up to 2 awards are made annually for a 5-year term that can be renewed once. The award of up to $80,000 per year (direct costs only) may be used for salary or research project support.
Interested individuals should submit their curriculum vitae with a complete bibliography and a letter of intent that briefly describes their seminal contributions to research.
