The Clinical Investigator Award (CIA) provides protected time (33%-50% effort) for midcareer clinician-scientists with specialty training relevant to the delivery of cancer care, including therapeutic intervention, early detection, and prevention to devote more time to augment their capabilities in clinical cancer research, particularly investigator-initiated clinical trials, and to provide mentoring to junior investigators in the conduct of clinical research.
