NHLBI September 2018 Notification
NHLBI has extended the combined number of years of K training support from six to eight years for the K08 and K23 grants. This means that for clinician scientists with K08 or K23 awards they can stay on a K12 or KL2 program for up to three years and then request a five year individual K award. This is geared for clinicians who received institutional K training, and it is to help support transition from training to independent investigators.
