The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS) has been invited by the Pew Scholars Program to nominate one candidate for support by the program. The aim of this program is to support assistant professors of outstanding promise in basic sciences relevant to the advancement of human health. This is an extremely prestigious award. Strong proposals will demonstrate particularly creative and innovative approaches. Previous recipients usually had an extensive publication list that includes at least one, and often more, first author publication(s) in either Science, Nature (or one of its specialty journals), Cell, and/or PNAS.
The award provides $240,000 in flexible support – $60,000 per year for a four-year period. The applicant is expected to spend no less than 80% of their time on the project described.
