Call for Applications: Alpha-1 Foundation Gordon L. Snider Scholar Award
The Alpha-1 Foundation is accepting applications for a new research grant, the Gordon L. Snider Scholar Award.
The award is named after Gordon L. Snider, MD, one of the most influential researchers in Alpha-1. Snider not only made seminal scientific contributions clarifiying Alpha-1-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 Alpha-1 research.
The award’s objective is to provide additional career development support for outstanding young investigators who have continued to conduct research in Alpha-1-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 Alpha-1 research.
The Alpha-1 Foundation intends to commit up to $225,000 ($75,000/year) over three years to fund one award.
Deadline to apply is July 25, 2014.
