2017 Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program

Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Positions Available
A Unique Bridge for Early Stage Clinical Investigators

The National Institutes of Health, in partnership with the Lasker Foundation, is pleased to announce the 2017 Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program. This is an opportunity for 10 to 12 years of funding for clinical researchers.


This unique program provides Scholars with 5 to 7 years of support as an independent principal investigator in the NIH Intramural Research Program, followed by three years of continued financial support, either at the NIH or at an outside medical center/research institution. 

Qualifications/eligibility:

Candidates must have a clinical doctoral degree (MD, MD/PhD, DO, DDS, DMD, RN/PhD or equivalent) and a professional license to practice in the United States. The program is intended for investigators at the early stages of their independent careers, and at the time of application, candidates must be no more than 10 years from completion of their core residency training. Candidates generally will have completed or will be completing a post-residency clinical fellowship and will have demonstrated significant patient-oriented research experience to qualify for a tenure-track level appointment.

To apply: Learn more at http://www.nih.gov/science/laskerscholar/
The application deadline is August 25, 2017

Of Special Note for Vascular Biologists:

The new Translational Vascular Medicine Branch (TVMB) at National Heart Lung and Blood Institute is seeking a new faculty member through the Lasker Clinical Research Scholar program (more information attached). We are looking for Physician -Scientist to join our team at NIH, Bethesda, MD, USA. The ideal candidate would have been trained in vascular medicine or vascular surgery with a strong scientific background in genetics, inflammation and vascular biology.  

The TVMB engages in research focused on the understanding of vascular diseases in human and model organism. The core principle of the TVMB is to study vascular disease mechanisms to develop novel treatment strategies to better serve our patients with vascular diseases. TVMB investigators employ genomic and molecular high throughput approaches to elucidate our understanding of the diseases mechanism with focus on atherosclerosis, inflammation, vascular calcification / occlusion and connective tissue changes in common and rare inherited disease populations. TVMB is a leader in vascular precision medicine translating discovery into treatment for patients with vascular diseases.

If interested, please contact Dr. Manfred Boehm MD, (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) and go to http://www.nih.gov/science/laskerscholar/ to apply.
