Our Health Outcomes
program offers pre- and post-doctoral fellowships and research starter grants. Health Outcomes Research spans a broad spectrum of issues from studies evaluating the effectiveness of a particular pharmaceutical intervention to the impact of reimbursement policies on the outcomes of care. It also ranges from the development and use of tools to perform patient-based assessments to analyses of the best way to disseminate the results of outcomes research to providers or consumers to encourage behavior change.
Our Translational Medicine and Therapeutics
program offers post-doctoral fellowships and research starter grants. The goal of the program is to promote the development and use of experimental and computational methods in an integrative approach towards clinical needs in diagnosis, treatment and prevention. Translational Medicine and Therapeutics awards advance training and support career development of scientists engaged in research that significantly integrates cutting-edge technologies with advanced biological, chemical, and pharmacological sciences and engineering methodologies. Emphasis will be placed on the identification of unmet clinical needs and the development of new experimental and computational approaches and technologies that facilitate the translation of research data into an elucidation and understanding of human biological and disease processes to directly support their solution.
Our Faculty Development Award in Clinical and Translational Pharmacology
supports clinical and basic scientists committed to pursuing a career in clinical-translational pharmacology involving both research and training. Award recipients will receive two years of support at $120,000 per year. Ideal physician candidates will have at least two years of training at the residency level and two years of clinical experience in a research training program related to clinical pharmacology and translational medicine. Non-physician candidates must show experience and opportunity for highly collaborative work with clinicians and patient populations.
Our Paul Calabresi Medical Student Fellowship in Clinical and Translational Pharmacology
enables medical or dental students who have substantial interests in research and teaching careers in pharmacology/clinical pharmacology to pursue a specific research effort within a pharmacology or clinical pharmacology unit.
