The NIH K22 mechanism has been around for some time. When I first discovered it I was amazed that the NIH had a genuine, Borroughs-Welcome style transition mech. This predated the K99/R00.

Trouble was, most (all?) ICs that used it were like NHLBI and reserve it for intramural postdocs.

What a crock.

Query for the day

Why are so many parents in such denial about their kids’ behavior? How can they have forgotten what they were like as kids and how their friends and neighbors behaved?

That’s the kid space. It hasn’t changed for the better. Your children occupy it. They are not magically angels just because they are yours.

So somewhere in your mind you should recognize it is possible that your kid would “do that”.
