Burroughs Wellcome Fund Invites Applications for Innovative Regulatory Science Awards

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund is an independent private foundation dedicated to advancing the biomedical sciences through support for research and other scientific and educational activities. Within this broad mission, BWF's primary goals are to help scientists early in their careers develop as independent investigators and to advance fields in the basic biomedical sciences that are undervalued or in need of particular encouragement.

As part of that mission, BWF is accepting applications for its 2017 Innovation in Regulatory Science Awards program.

Grants of up to $500,000 over five years will be awarded to academic investigators working to develop new methodologies or innovative approaches in the field of regulatory science that will ultimately inform the regulatory decisions made by the Food and Drug Administration and others.

The program is open to citizens or permanent of the United States and Canada who have a faculty or adjunct faculty appointment at a North American degree-granting institution. Awards are made to the degree-granting institution on behalf of the awardee.

See the BWF website for complete program guidelines, an FAQ, and application instructions.
