Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program

The NIH has launched a new program in conjunction with the Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation that will provide medical doctors with funding for patient-focused, clinical research projects. The goal is to bridge the widening gap between cutting-edge research and improved patient care. The initiative enables exceptional clinical researchers in the early stages of their careers to first spend 5-7 years at the NIH Clinical Center. Upon successful completion of this first stage, the scholars would be offered the opportunity to remain at the NIH as senior clinical research scientists or to apply for up to 4 years of independent financial support at a university or other external research institution.
