Sun Pharma/SID Innovation Research Fellowships
Congratulations to the 2019 Fellows!
2019 SUN Pharma-SID Fellowships
The Review Committee awarded a second year of funding to the four SUN Fellows from 2018. They all made significant progress in their research, and it was felt that providing support for an additional year would continue that progress:
Rafik Boudra, PhD, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Institute of Medicine, Boston, MA
Erin Brettmann, PhD, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO
Sanjana P. Devi Kangabam, PhD, Weill Cornell Medicine, New York, NY
Robert Dorschner, MD, University of California, San Diego, San Diego, CA
DESCRIPTION: The goals of of the Sun Pharma/SID Innovation Research Fellowships are to provide support for meritorious research, to strengthen the research environment of schools, and to expose available young investigators in such environments to meritorious research. Sun Pharma-SID Fellowships will enable qualified scientists to receive support for small-scale research projects-an important step in establishing their independence as an investigator.
ELIGIBILITY: Fellows from institutions in the United States may apply.
Eligibility requirements are as follows:
AWARDS: Fellowship program award funding will be paid to the institution. Two Fellowship awardees will receive a maximum of $50,000 each for two years to support their fellowship stipend. Institutions are to certify that funds will be applied toward stipend, salary and fringe benefits only, and not to be used for any indirect costs. Funds are non-renewable but consecutive applications to support the same fellow for multiple years are allowed.
REVIEW: A committee composed of SID Leaders-experts in Dermatology-will review applications. Fellowship award recipients will be selected based on the strengths of the program, project, mentor, and fellow.
