Postdoctoral T32 and R01 Grant Outcomes

Based on 33,977 T32 post-doctoral participants who matriculated between 1995 and 2009, with relevant age, gender, and under-represented minority (URM) data, were followed for receipt as principal investigator (PI) of subsequent K and R01-equivalent awards – referred to collectively as R01s – through 2017.

Mike Lauer, NIH Deputy Director of Extramural Research, reports non-URM matriculants were supported as PI’s at a greater rate than URM matriculants.
