With Dr. Tammy Collins

Postdocs often seek awards providing independent funding and financial support to facilitate the transition to faculty. The Pathway to Independence Award (K99/R00) from NIH is a competitive award that supports exceptional postdoctoral researchers in completing the final years of their postdoctoral work and transitioning to a role as an independent scientist. Career Awards at the Scientific Interface (CASI) offered by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund (BWF; headquartered in Durham) presents an alternative path to securing an award that will facilitate this transition. CASI provides $500,000 over five years to bridge advanced postdoctoral training and the first three years of faculty service. Both awards are open to non-US citizens. In this webinar, Dr. Collins will give an overview of the K99/R00 and CASI programs and provide some tips for thinking about when to apply, which center to apply to, broad tips on specific aims & other aspects, as well as comparing and contrasting the K99/R00 and the CASI award, showcasing reviewer comments on each.
