Summary

Last week, National Institutes of Health director Harold Varmus unveiled three new NIH grant programs designed specifically for clinical researchers: career development awards, which would go to M.D.s who have finished their specialty training and have committed to a research career; grants to "particularly talented early- and midcareer investigators doing clinical research" for training new investigators; and a new category of grants to help institutions develop curricula for clinical researchers.
