The inaugural Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Symposium, which kicks off a new partnership between the NIH and the Lasker Foundation, will highlight the work of Dr. Charles Sawyers from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Dr. Christine Seidman from Harvard Medical School and Drs. Daniel Kastner and W. Marston Linehan from the NIH. Other symposium speakers will include Drs. Francis Collins, Harold Varmus and Michael Gottesman from the NIH, and Drs. Maria Freire and Alfred Sommer from the Lasker Foundation.
Recognizing barriers to clinical research, the NIH and the Lasker Foundation have partnered to create the Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program. The program will support a small number of exceptional clinical researchers in the early stages of their careers to promote their development to fully independent scientists.
The program combines a period of research experience as a tenure-track Principal Investigator in the NIH Intramural Research Program with an opportunity for additional years of independent financial support, either within the intramural program or at a medical center/research institute setting. Scholars will have the opportunity to participate in selected activities provided by the Lasker Foundation.
The Lasker Scholars program honors the contributions of Mary and Albert Lasker to the National Institutes of Health and to the overall biomedical community.
