Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced a new program, called the Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program, in conjunction with the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation to provide funding for patient-focused, clinical research projects.
Exceptional clinical researchers in the early stages of their careers would spend 5 to 7 years at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Md. The scholars would then be offered the opportunity to remain at the NIH as senior clinical research scientists or to apply for up to four years of independent financial support at a university or other external research institution.
