The Path to a Cure – Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Award from the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation provides funding for recent MD, PhD, and MD/PhD graduates to conduct basic research on cystic fibrosis in the USA. The research proposed must have the potential to inform or ultimately translate into novel therapies to restore CFTR protein function or fix/replace the defective CFTR gene. The Fellowship provides salary support starting at 75,000 USD / year for up to 2 years, including fringe benefits and travel expenses, but does not cover indirect costs. Applications are open to US citizens, permanent residents and non-residents working in US-based laboratories. There are two assessment rounds per year, closing in May and December.
The next applications close on May 11, 2023.
