DESCRIPTION: The Sun Pharma/SID Mid Career Investigator Awards are intended to bridge funding gaps for outstanding investigative dermatologists who have submitted applications to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for R01 or R21 Awards that were well-scored, but not funded. The scientific review committee will attempt to distribute funding across several categories of research that include inflammatory skin diseases, skin cancer and photobiology.
ELIGIBILITY: Public or private institutions throughout the US such as universities, colleges, hospitals, laboratories, and non-profit organizations are eligible.
REQUIRED: Active SID Members who are an MD, DO, PhD, MD/PhD or equivalent, and full-time faculty position at a US Department or Division of Dermatology or equivalent.
