Opportunity to USA, Canada, and International early-career scientists with a PhD or MD to receive mentorship with the goal of becoming independent researchers in the field of Parkinson's disease. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to a full grant application. This is a two-stage program.
The Parkinson's Foundation identifies and supports talented postdoctoral fellows who have demonstrated a vision to help solve, treat, and end PD to ensure the PD community has the ideas and people necessary to address the causes, symptom progression, consequences, and treatments of this disease. The Foundation aims to help these young scientists transition and succeed in independent careers to maximize their impact in PD research.
The Launch Award will cultivate a strong cohort of new and talented independent investigators dedicated to PD research. The award will provide research support to outstanding postdoctoral researchers that will enable them to complete needed mentored training and transition promptly to independent research careers in the PD field. This award is a two-stage program consisting of a Mentored Stage (1-2 years) and an Independent Stage (up to 2 years). At the end of the funding period, it is expected that awardees will become independent research leaders with their own research space and research team.
Mentored Stage: An expected 75% of the applicant's time is to be dedicated to research. The remaining 25% effort is for additional training, postdoctoral projects, and publishing of results.
Independent Stage: Ideally, the applicant will be ready to submit an NIH R01 or equivalent grant by the conclusion of a Launch Award.
Applicants from groups that have been historically underrepresented or excluded in the scientific workforce, including but not limited to racial and ethnic groups, sexual orientation and gender identities, individuals with mental/physical disabilities, and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds, are especially encouraged.
