NIAMS recently hosted its fifth annual career development forum for extramural researchers who are in the third year of a mentored clinical scientist development (K08) or patient-oriented research (K23) grant. In addition to the K awardees, the forum included physician-scientists who recently received R01 awards, established researchers and representatives of professional and voluntary organizations. The group discussed challenges junior investigators face when pursuing research independence.

The meeting included presentations on mentoring, the NIAMS intramural program and resources and opportunities for early stage researchers offered by professional and voluntary groups. The K awardees also had an opportunity to present their research and to interact with NIAMS leadership and program, review and grants management officials.
