There is an urgent need for more research to establish best practices in the pain management field, however, there is a limited workforce pipeline of pain researchers to meet NIH’s long-term goals of providing effective non-opioid options for the treatment of pain conditions and better pain management overall. We are excited to announce the HEAL Initiative: National K12 Clinical Pain Career Development Program and HEAL Initiative: Coordinating Center for National Pain Scientists Career Development funding opportunities to promote career development of pain scientists.
If you are interested in learning more about these funding opportunities, please join our webinars (full details in the notice) on February 14th from 12:00 to 1:00pm ET (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-NS-22-045.html) and February 15th from 12:00 to 1:00pm ET (https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/rfa-files/RFA-NS-22-046.html).
Please refer to the RFA IC contacts for specific questions.
