The Neurofibromatosis Research Program (NFRP) utilizes the New Investigator Award (NIA) to introduce the next generation of investigators and their ideas to the NF research community. Since the first NFRP NIA in 1999, there have been 323 NIA applications received, and of those, 65 have been recommended for funding. The goal of this award mechanism is to support the continued development of promising new independent investigators or established investigators transitioning from other career fields who can bring new techniques or expertise into the field of NF research. In fiscal year 2016, there were two NIAs awarded. The research planned by these investigators addresses different NF research topic areas of interest, but both NIA researchers are bringing novel concepts to the NF research community.
