The National Psoriasis Foundation (NPF) has long recognized the importance of research to improve the lives of those living with psoriatic disease. The first pillar of their new five-year strategic plan is to lead collaborative, transformational research in psoriatic disease to support this mission.
The Liver Scholar Award provides early career scientists with support for their research to bridge the gap between completion of research training and attainment of status as an independent research scientist. The additional research experience provided by this award is intended to enable early career scientists to successfully compete for research awards from national sources, particularly the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by supporting projects in two areas: (1) medical research and (2) science and engineering research.
The Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Career Development Award represents an effort to encourage and support junior faculty to conduct pancreatic cancer research and establish successful career paths in this field. The research proposed for funding may be basic, translational, clinical or epidemiological in nature and must have direct applicability and relevance to pancreatic cancer.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), in collaboration with longtime partner the Edmond J. Safra Foundation, introduced The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders.

American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation—Herbert Silverstein Otology/Neurotology Research Award
The purpose of the Herbert Silverstein Otology/Neurotology Research Award, which is jointly sponsored by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAOHNSF) and the American Neurotology Society (ANS), is to support a clinical or translational research project focused on diseases, disorders, or conditions of the peripheral or central auditory and/or vestibular system among new full-time academic surgeons.
The major goal of this program is to assist in the development of the careers of junior investigators committed to pursuing careers in the field of aging research. GMRF and AFAR support research projects concerned with understanding the basic mechanisms of aging rather than disease-specific research.
Sponsored by the Glenn Foundation for Medical Research, in collaboration with the American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR), the "Breakthroughs in Gerontology (BIG)" initiative provides timely support to a small number of research projects that are relatively high risk but which offer significant promise of yielding transforming discoveries in the fundamental biology of aging.
The Educational and Research Foundation for the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery—The Leslie Bernstein Grant
The purpose of this grant is to support and encourage original work of an AAFPRS member undertaking research that will advance facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. The grant is endowed by funds from Leslie Bernstein, MD, DDS, and may be used as seed money for larger research projects.
The Damon Runyon Clinical Investigator Award supports independent young physician-scientists conducting disease-oriented research that demonstrates a high level of innovation and creativity. The goal is to support the best young physician-scientists doing work aimed at improving the practice of cancer medicine.
