BWF awards $11.2 million to support physician-scientists
Date:5/19/2008

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C.The Burroughs Wellcome Fund has announced the 2008 recipients of the Career Awards for Medical Scientists.

The Career Awards for Medical Scientists program is the result of the reformulation of the Career Awards in the Biomedical Sciences, which was instituted by BWF in 1995 and ran through the 2006 award year. In response to the NIHs K99/R00 Pathway to Independence program, which was modeled after the CABS award, BWF has shifted the focus of the program to address the on-going problem of increasing the number of physician scientists and keeping them in research. BWF believes that this five-year $700,000 bridging award, supporting the last years of a mentored position in addition to supporting the beginning years of an independent position, will facilitate the transition to a career in research and buy research time from service commitments.

Physician scientists are essential to translating the fruits of basic research into applications that have the potential to improve health, BWF President Enriqueta C. Bond, Ph.D. said. This program provides essential support during a critical transition period.

Awards are offered to the individual investigator on behalf of the research institutions in the United States or Canada. The next deadline for applications is October 1, 2008.

The 2009 Career Awards for Medical Scientists are:

Antonios O. Aliprantis, M.D., Ph.D.
Harvard School of Public Health
Novel regulators of the osteoclast differentiation program

Kathleen H. Burns, M.D., Ph.D.
