NYC-Based Research Alliance Offering $200,000 per Year for Young Investigators
THE PERSHING SQUARE SOHN CANCER RESEARCH ALLIANCE is taking applications for its Prize for Young Investigators in Cancer Research.
The prize of $200,000 per year for up to three years is awarded annually to five New York City-based scientists. Each prize winner is given a mentor in the pharmaceutical industry and the opportunity to present his or her work to scientific and business audiences.
In May 2014, the alliance awarded the inaugural prize to six winners: Emily Bernstein, of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; Adolfo Ferrando, of Columbia University Medical Center; Ross Levine, of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center; Agata Smogorzewska, of The Rockefeller University; Lloyd Trotman, of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory; and Sihong Wang, of CUNY City College.
Applicants must have between two to eight years of experience running their own laboratories and must have a PhD, MD or MD-PhD or equivalent. The deadline to submit a Letter of Intent is November 12. More details are available at www.psscra.org.
