Announcement: The National Institutes of Health announces the Lasker Clinical Research Scholars program

January 25, 2011

The National Institutes of Health is pleased to announce the Lasker Clinical Research Scholars program, a joint partnership that involves the NIH intramural and extramural communities, as well as the Lasker Foundation.

The program will support a small number of exceptional clinical researchers in the early stages of their careers to promote their development to fully independent positions. The program combines a period of research as a tenure-track investigator in the NIH Intramural Research Program (IRP) with an opportunity for additional years of independent financial support, either within the IRP or at an extramural research institution. Scholars will also participate in activities with the Lasker Foundation.

The Notice announcing the program is available athttp://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-11-030.html, and application details will be released within the next several weeks in a Request for Applications. Additional information can be obtained athttp://www.nih.gov/science/laskerscholar, or contact Charles Dearolf, Asst. Director for Intramural Research, at LaskerScholar@nih.gov.
