The Natalie V. Zucker Research Center for Women Scholars will be accepting applications for its nineteenth annual grant awards. Established through the generosity of Mrs. Natalie V. Zucker, the Center is devoted to furthering the research careers of female basic and clinical scientists at Tufts University School of Medicine and Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. This is a request for applications for the Center’s grants.
Junior faculty at TUSM/Sackler or the major affiliated hospitals (up to and inclusive of the rank of Assistant Professor) and postgraduate fellows at TUSM/Sackler, or at major affiliated hospitals, who are engaged in basic or clinical research are eligible. Residents are eligible to apply. The applicant’s mentor or Department Chair must support her request. Previous awardees are ineligible. Faculty members who are already principal investigators on RO1 grants or who have financial start-up packages for their laboratory are also ineligible.
A total of $70,000 will be awarded by the Center this year, distributed in individual grants according to the Selection Committee’s judgment. This year we will be distributing money for two types of awards: (1) Research Project (Basic, Clinical, or Translational); and (2) Travel and Training Award.
The deadline for submission of applications is Monday, April 16, 2018.
