They must fall into three categories:

  1. Established investigators in skin diseases or related areas with a proposal for testing the feasibility of a new or innovative idea that is skin disease-related but represents a clear and distinct departure from the investigator's ongoing research interest;
  2. Established investigators with no previous work in skin disease or related areas who are willing to test the applicability of their expertise on a skin disease
  3. New investigators who have not been principal investigators in a past or current NIH research project grant (R01, R21, and P series). New investigators should be clearly independent and have a faculty appointment higher than that of postdoctoral fellow or research associate.

New this year: Translational Science trainees who are residents or fellows in research-track training programs may apply for a one-year award during their research year.
