The Scleroderma Foundation is seeking applications from promising new investigators who hold a faculty or equivalent position and who wish to pursue a career in research related to scleroderma for its New Investigator Grant program. The annual program is designed to facilitate the entry of promising new investigators into areas of research related to scleroderma.
To that end, grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of promising research likely to lead to individual research project grants.
Applications will be accepted from principal investigators at nonprofit organizations and public and private entities such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories. Applicants must have a doctoral degree in medicine, osteopathy, veterinary medicine, or one of the sciences; have completed a postdoctoral fellowship; and have been principal investigator on a grant from the Scleroderma Foundation or other national, private, or government agencies in the past.
