This award recognizes a junior research scientist for the best
basic science research that seeks to solve a clinical
The Harold Brody/Medical Emeritus Faculty Society Award supports the discovery of new knowledge that is critical for the continued advancement of the medical profession and improvement of health care.
To advance human health, scientific discoveries must be translated into practical applications. Such discoveries typically begin at “the bench” with basic research — in which scientists study disease at a molecular or cellular level — then progress to the clinical level, or the patient's “bedside.”
When such information is applied to the problems of health maintenance and cures for diseases, it could well provide new tools for developing innovative and effective therapies.

research with alumni, faculty and guests.
You must be either a:
You may hold an MD, PhD or both, with your most recent degree
awarded no more than 10 years ago.
Your research must involve a basic science project specifically directed toward solving a clinical problem. The application must indicate the nature of the clinical problem to be addressed and how the research results might be applied to the problem, with the possibility of developing therapeutic interventions or clinical trials in people.
You will need to prepare a single PDF including these materials:
For all supporting documentation, use Times New Roman font in 12-point type with single line spacing and one-inch margins.
