Limited Submission Announcement

The Dermatology Foundation Research Awards Program is accepting applications for the Dermatologist Investigator Research Fellowship. This fellowship supports dermatologists who desire research training and have a commitment to an academic career in medical and surgical dermatology. Consideration will also be given to individuals with substantial training in other areas who are entering into skin research.

Applications will be accepted from individuals holding M.D., M.D./Ph.D., or D.O. degrees who have completed training in a three-year United States dermatology residency program or completed one year of a four-year United States dermatology residency program and will be in a lab or research year during the award period. Individuals with an academic appointment at the level of assistant professor or above are not eligible for this award. Research must be conducted in the United States, and the applicant must designate a mentor who has an academic appointment in dermatology or another program at the sponsoring institution that is approved by the dermatology chair. Individuals may only receive simultaneous salary support from department funds, an NIH training grant, mentor’s R01/P01 grant, and other granting agencies providing support equivalent to a training grant.

Because MU is limited to two applications annually for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, August 21, 2009. Letters of intent should be limited to a 1-page summary of the research questions and aims of the proposed project and a 2-page biographical sketch.
