The K99/R00 grant, also called the Pathway to independence Award, provides funding for the last 1-2 years of your postdoctoral research training, followed by transitional funding for up to 3 years once you obtain an independent research position. While this training award is similar in many ways to other K awards, some distinct characteristics make it a different beast. In this session Keith Yamamoto, PhD, the Vice Chancellor for Science Policy and Strategy for the UCSF School of Medicine, will outline specific tips for preparing all components of a K99/R00 application. Additionally, a panel of postdocs who were recently awarded K99s and an assistant professor with an R00 will share advice from their own experiences.
