Virtual Meeting for Advancing Research Careers (ARC) Predoc to Postdoc Transition Program (F99/K00) Applicants


We’re pleased to announce a virtual “office hour” on May 1 for potential applicants to our new Advancing Research Careers (ARC) predoctoral to postdoctoral transition award (F99/K00).

The ARC program is part of the National Institutes of Health’s efforts to promote broad participation within the biomedical research workforce. It has two components: an individual predoctoral to postdoctoral career transition award (F99/K00) and an institutional research education cooperative agreement (UE5) to provide these scholars with additional mentoring, networking, and professional development activities. The office hour will focus on the F99/K00 portion.

During the meeting, we’ll provide a brief overview of the ARC F99/K00 funding opportunity and answer your programmatic, budget, and scientific review questions. Those interested in joining the office hour are strongly encouraged to review the 2023 ARC prospective applicant webinar and companion slide deck [PDF] beforehand.
