The Scleroderma Foundation is seeking applications to its New Investigator Grant program from promising investigators with a faculty or equivalent position who wish to pursue a career in research related to scleroderma.
Grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded to support promising research by new investigators 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 doctorate degree in medicine, osteopathy, veterinary medicine, or one of the sciences; have completed a postdoctoral fellowship; and have been a principal investigator on grants from the Scleroderma Foundation or other national, private, or government agencies in the past.
