The purpose of the Midcareer Investigator Award in Patient-Oriented Research is to
provide support for clinician investigators to allow them protected time to devote
to patient-oriented research (POR) and to act as research mentors primarily for
clinical residents, clinical fellows and/or junior clinical faculty. This award is
primarily intended for clinician investigators who are at the Associate Professor
level or are functioning at that rank in an academic setting or equivalent non-
academic setting, and who have an established record of independent, peer-reviewed
Federal or private research grant funding in POR. This award is intended to advance
both the research and the mentoring endeavors of outstanding patient-oriented
investigators. It is expected, for example, that investigators will obtain new or
additional independent peer-reviewed funding as the PI for POR and establish and
assume leadership roles in collaborative POR programs; and that there will be an
increased effort and commitment to mentor beginning clinician investigators in POR
to enhance the research productivity of the investigator and increase the pool of
well-trained clinical researchers of the future. With a view to achieving these
objectives, the maximum level of allowable Research Development Costs has been
increased in this announcement from $25,000 to $50,000 per year.

For the purposes of this award, and in agreement with the recommendations of the
NIH Directors Panel on Clinical Research,
(http://www.nih.gov/news/crp/97report/index.htm), patient-oriented research is
defined as research conducted with human subjects (or on material of human origin
such as tissues, specimens and cognitive phenomena)for which an investigator
directly interacts with human subjects. This area of research includes 1)
mechanisms of human disease; 2) therapeutic interventions; 3) clinical trials, and;
4) the development of new technologies. Studies falling under Exemption 4 for
human subjects research are not included in this definition.
