About the NCI Research Specialist Award (R50)

The NCI R50 Award encourages the development of stable research career opportunities for exceptional scientists who want to pursue research within the context of an existing NCI-funded cancer research program, but not serve as independent investigators. 

Applicants must have an advanced degree (e.g., Masters, Ph.D., D.V.M., D.D.S., M.D.) in an area of biomedical science or biomedical engineering and have demonstrated cancer research accomplishments in their primary discipline. Additional eligibility requirements can be found in the funding opportunity announcements.
