Edward Mallinckrodt, Jr. Scholar Award for early career scientists, Nov. 21

The Edward Mallinckrodt, Jr. Foundation’s Scholar Award program is designed to support early-stage investigators engaged in any area of biomedical research that has the potential to significantly advance the understanding, diagnosis, or treatment of disease. The award provides up to $100,000 per year for four years to faculty members who hold a M.D. and/or Ph.D. degree, and who are in their fifth to eighth year of a tenure-track position, with the aim of moving the project forward to the point where R01 or other independent funding can be obtained.
