Lymphatic Research Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards
January 10, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time (GMT-5)
The Lymphatic Research Foundation (LRF) is a 501(c)(3) not-for profit organization committed to promoting and supporting basic, translational and clinical research, and to fostering an interdisciplinary field of research that will result in improved understanding and/or advances in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of lymphatic diseases, lymphedema, and related disorders.
Lymphatic Research Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program
The LRF Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is designed to support postdoctoral scientists in academic, medical or research institutions throughout the world. The awards will support investigators who have recently received their doctorates, a critical point in career development when young scientists choose their lifelong research focus. The goal of the Fellowship Program is to expand and strengthen the pool of outstanding junior investigators in the field of lymphatic research.
Each applicant must be working under the supervision of an established investigator who is the designated Mentor. Two-year fellowships ranging from $82,000 to $95,000 will be awarded to fellows who have completed no more than three years of postdoctoral training by July 1st of the LRF funding cycle.
Examples of funding areas include but are not limited to basic, translational or clinical investigations into normal and aberrant lymphatic endothelial biology; mechanisms of normal and pathological lymphangiogenesis; imaging lymphatic function and structure; animal models of lymphatic system disorders; and the cross-talk between the lymphatic and the immune systems.
Projects in lymphocyte biology, leukemia, lymphoma and conditions secondary to lymphedema such as cutaneous infections are outside the scope of this program.
