Funding: Human Skin Disease Resource Center Grant Program
The Human Skin Disease Resource Center (HSDRC) at Brigham & Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School provides access to human tissues and cutting edge human analytic techniques to investigators at any institution who wish to carry out research on human skin disease.
We seek proposals for two grant programs, listed below, which have the goal of encouraging new research in human skin disease. All investigators proposing human-based skin disease studies are encouraged to apply. Priority will be given to young investigators, to those seeking to confirm mouse studies in humans, and investigators new to human skin disease research.
Visiting Scholar Grants: These $15,000 grants bring investigators physically into the Center at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School, for a stay of one-six months for the purposes of hands-on training in human skin disease research. Three $15,000 grants will be offered each year and funds can be used for Center services and supplies. Awardees salary during their stay will be paid by their home institution.
Translation Accelerator Grants: These $30,000 grants will be awarded to individuals at any institution with the purpose of supporting human skin disease research. Proposed research would be carried out at least in part using Center services and will address an important question in human skin disease research. Two $30,000 grants will be offered each year and funds can be used for Center services, supplies or salary support.
