Department Faculty Research Award

The Temple University Department of Medicine Faculty Development Research Awards will provide support for faculty working toward externally funded careers in medical research. It is intended that new grant(s) will be awarded in 2017 for qualified candidate(s). This award is targeted primarily for junior faculty and, in certain circumstances established faculty who wish to redirect their careers toward research, and will provide protected time, salary support, and some supplies for investigator career development in clinical, translational or basic science research. The intent of this award will be to provide significant protected time to carry out research projects that will make the candidate attractive for subsequent extramural research funding, such as NIH K23, K08, R21, and R01 grants and major societal career development awards. The application process is similar to that used for the NIH K23 young investigator awards. Academic course work is strongly encouraged as part of this developmental award. Educational programs include the Masters of Science in Clinical Research and Translational Medicine, and the Masters of Science Degree in Epidemiology offered in the School of Public Health.

The objective of the Faculty Development Research Award is to assist promising and aspiring faculty in the Department of Medicine to carry out research endeavors that will lead to externally-funded research careers.
