Are you preparing a grant application for the NIH Maximizing Opportunities for Scientific and Academic Independent Careers (MOSAIC) K99/R00 or UE5 programs? If so, please join our webinar to learn more about the programs and application components and to ask questions:
MOSAIC is an NIH-wide initiative to enhance faculty diversity in the biomedical research workforce. It has two components: a postdoctoral career transition award (K99/R00) and a cohort-based mentoring and career development program that supports the MOSAIC scholars (UE5 research education cooperative agreement).
During the webinar, we’ll provide a detailed overview of the programs and our application expectations for the upcoming receipt dates: October 12 (K99/R00) and November 15 (UE5). We’ll also describe recent changes to the MOSAIC UE5 program that expand eligibility of organizations and principal investigators to include higher education institutions and full-time faculty members, and that increase the maximum budget. You’ll also learn more about areas of program priority for the MOSAIC UE5 program this year, including neuroscience, physiology, and population health.
You can send questions before the webinar to us or post them in the chat box during the event. You don’t need to register in advance to attend. Participants requiring sign language interpretation and/or other reasonable accommodations should submit a request using our contact form at least 5 days prior to the webinar.
