Overview of a Typical Career Pathway
As the largest funder of medical research, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has an established grant pathway to support investigators during training and fellowship (T and F series), early career (K series), independent investigator (R series), and senior investigator (P series). This pathway serves as template applicable to other funding organizations.
