Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program

Several NIH Institutes, including NIA, NIAID, NIDDK and NINR, are participating in the Lasker Clinical Research Scholars program.  This program supports the research activities during the early stage careers of independent clinical researchers.  It is a unique bridge between the NIH intramural and extramural research communities and contains two phases.  In the first phase, Lasker scholars will receive appointments for up to 5-7 years as tenure-track investigators within the NIH Intramural Research Program with independent research budgets.  In the second phase, successful scholars will receive up to 3 years of NIH support for their research at an extramural research facility; or, the scholar can be considered to remain as an investigator within the intramural program.  Interested parties should refer to the announcement to see the research areas of interest within their institute.

Applications are due:  August 30, 2019, by 5:00 PM local time.
