Coulter Post Doctoral Scholars
The Coulter Center Post-Doctoral Scholars grants support innovative translational research projects that are conceived of by postdocs.
The Post-Doctoral Scholar Research Grant supports up to $25,000 a project, for initiating and advancing innovative translational research projects that are conceived of by postdocs within the department of BME. While also providing an impactful translational research training experience for postdocs. This grant is intended to support trainee-led research that will enhance their postdoctoral training experience and make them competitive for the next steps in their career. It will also help them generate strong preliminary data to be used in publications, secure external funding, and/or help them prepare for their independent careers.
In line with the philosophy of the Wallace H. Coulter Center for Translational Research of promoting “Science serving humanity”, applications for the Post-Doctorial Scholar Research Grant must lay out a direct path for how the proposed work has the potential to improve patient wellness.
