Description

The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK) aims to improve people’s health and quality of life by conducting and supporting medical research and research training on the diseases and conditions under its purview, including kidney diseases. This poster describes NIDDK programs that support the training of medical and graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and early stage and early established investigators. These include individual and institutional Ruth L. Kirschstein National Research Service Awards, loan repayment programs, career development awards, pathway to independence awards, and training mechanisms to promote diversity in research. Additionally, this poster will highlight methods for moving beyond training programs to independent research, including details on leveraging the early stage investigator status.
