2005 NIH Director's Pioneer Award program opens

The National Institutes of Health announces the 2005 NIH Director's Pioneer Award, a key component of the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research.

The program is open to scientists at all career levels. The scientists may currently be engaged in any field of research provided they are interested in exploring biomedically relevant topics and willing to commit the major portion of their effort to Pioneer Award research. Awardees must be U.S. citizens, non-citizen nationals, or permanent residents.

In September 2005, NIH expects to make five to ten new Pioneer Awards of up to $500,000 in direct costs per year for five years. The first nine Pioneer Awards were made in September 2004 and support scientists working on a variety of challenging scientific problems.
