Call for Applications: Alpha-1 Foundation Gordon L. Snider Scholar Award
Full Application Due Date: March 28, 2014
The Alpha-1 Foundation is proud to announce its latest funding opportunity, the Gordon L. Snider Scholar Award. This award is named after Gordon L. Snider, MD, one of the most influential researchers in Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD). Snider not only made seminal scientific contributions which have clarified the pathogenesis of AATD related lung disease, but also laid the groundwork for the Foundation’s research program. In particular, he stressed the importance of encouraging young investigators to pursue a career in AATD research.
The objective of this award is to provide additional career development support for outstanding young investigators who have continued to conduct research (basic or clinical) in AATD related lung or liver disease after completion of their postdoctoral fellowship. It is expected that the award will provide an incentive for a career in AATD research.
The Alpha-1 Foundation intends to commit up to $225,000 ($75,000/year) over three years to fund one award.
