K99/R00 Sample Applications

An NIA Investigator has graciously agreed to share their exceptional applications and summary statements as samples to help the research community. The resources below represent the initial submission and subsequent resubmission of a K99/R00 application from a single applicant, who received an excellent score and was funded upon resubmission. This is only one example of a successful K99/R00 application and is not meant to be a template for future applicants. Please make sure that your application is tailored to your specific research and career development plan, and seek individual advice from mentors and peers as you prepare your application.
