NIH's Next Generation Researchers Initiative

Dear Investigators,

The National Institutes for Health recently launch its Next Generation Researchers Initiative to support the development of research programs for early stage and mid-career investigators.

We encourage all early stage and mid-career investigators with relevant research to check out upcoming R01 funding opportunities. Here are a couple of additional resources about the initiave that may be of interest to you:
