Pathway to scientific independence by the NIH K99 award

In it to win it

The postdoctoral training period is nearly essential for all research scientists who aspire to lead a research laboratory in a university or non-profit research center. To characterize the transition of scientists from postdoc to established PI, we previously conducted an analysis of how many postdocs with a NIH-sponsored F32 fellowship went on to become PIs of a R-esearch grant. In 2006, NIH int...

Odds of success
Survival analysis of NIH grant applicants at top institutions

Odds of success

Previously, we calculated the fraction of the R01 grant pool that each institution has obtained in 2013, and how this fraction has changed over time. We now wanted to perform a complementary analysis, determining institutional variability in the length of time that individual PIs are able to maintain NIH grant funding. This analysis would be of interest to university administrators who want to rec...

The Perfect Blueprint
Abstract similarities across many grants

The Perfect Blueprint

In our database, for any grant we report "Related Projects" that are renewals of ongoing projects from individual investigators. We wanted to improve this by identifying "Related Projects" more generally in which we group different grants based on the text in the abstract. We analyzed the similarities of 2013 NIH grant abstracts with lengths of at least 100 words (disregarding the public health r...
