The purpose of the NCI F32 award is to support promising postdoctoral applicants who have the potential to become productive and successful independent research investigators. The NCI F32 application has two components: 1) it must enhance the applicant's understanding of the health-related sciences; 2) the research conducted must be within the broad scope of the basic, clinical, and population science based research mission of the NCI.
NCI fellowships that are discussed will be assigned a priority score and a percentile indicating the application’s relative standing among applications reviewed in the same study section. Applications that are not discussed will not be assigned a priority score or a percentile. All applications will receive the reviewers comments or “summary statement” approximately one month after the study section meets.
For more complete information, reference the program announcement and/or contact the program staff.
