New Investigator

An individual that has not previously served as a principal investigator on any Public Health Service-supported research project other than a small grant (R03), and Academic Research Enhancement Award (R15), and exploratory development grant (R21), or certain research career awards directed principally to physicians, dentists, or veterinarians at the beginning of their research careers (K01, K08, and K12). Current or past recipients of Independent Scientist and other non-mentored career awards (K02 and K04) are not considered ‘new investigators.’ (NIH)
