Dana Foundation invites applications for human immunology scholars

Deadline: 5/12/2009

The Dana Foundation will support promising new investigators who are beginning careers in patient-based immunology research as Dana Scholars.

To be considered for a Dana Scholar award, a candidate should be a new faculty member carrying out independent research (e.g., postdoctoral fellow transitioning to a first faculty position) as instructor or assistant professor (with no more than one current R01 award). A scholar should be initiating or engaged in research in immunology that requires the study of patients or materials from patients. One of the areas of interest is the brain.

Each Dana Scholar will be eligible to receive up to $225,000 in support (which can include up to 10 percent for equipment; the foundation does not fund indirect costs), payable over a three-year period.
