Burroughs Wellcome fund awards $8.25 million in grants to physician-scientists

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C. BWF has named 11 physician-scientists as the 2007 recipients of its Clinical Scientist Awards in Translational Research. These $750,000 awards are intended to support established, independent physician-scientists who are dedicated to translational researchthe two-way transfer between laboratory research and patient treatmentand mentoring physician-scientist trainees.

This year, BWF has awarded a total of $8.25 million to foster the development and productivity of these investigators. The awards give them the freedom and flexibility to explore scientific questions, apply the resulting knowledge at the bedside and bring insights from the clinical setting back to the laboratory for further study.

Translational Research Awards provide $150,000 per year over five years. Candidates must have an M.D. or M.D.-Ph.D. degree and hold an appointment or joint appointment in a subspecialty of clinical medicine. They must also be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. and Canada and hold a current license to practice medicine.

We hope these awards will lead to better understanding of the mechanisms of disease as well as new methods of diagnosing, treating and preventing disease, said BWF President Enriqueta C. Bond, Ph.D. BWF is particularly interested in supporting physician-scientists who bring novel ideas and new approaches to translational research.

BWF launched the Translational Awards program in 1997 and has made a total of 80 awardsan investment of more than $58 million in the careers of physicians who bridge the gap between the bench and the bedside.
