Gilead Research Scholars, an initiative of Gilead Sciences, welcomes proposals for research on liver disease.
Through the program, grants of up to $65,000 per year for two years will be awarded in support of basic and clinical research in the field of liver disease. Areas of research may include but are not limited to chronic viral hepatitis; end-stage liver disease and its complications; non-viral chronic liver diseases; basic, clinical, and translational research related to liver disease; and health economics outcomes research related to liver disease.
Awards are intended for junior faculty in the early stages of their careers; more specifically, applicants may be the recipient of a career development (K) award or other mentored research award but not an R01 grant or equivalent. Proposals in clinical research are strongly encouraged.
To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, DO, PhD, or equivalent degree at the time of the award and be within seven years of a faculty appointment in association with an academic research institution in Canada, Mexico, South America, or the United States at the time of application. Applicants also must have a research mentor with extensive experience in the field of liver disease.
