Lasker Clinical Research Scholars
The Lasker Clinical Research Scholars Program aims to grow the diminishing pool of talented physician-scientists by providing the necessary financial support to establish their careers. It combines a five to seven-year period of independent research as an NIH Principal Investigator with the opportunity to then either remain at the NIH as a tenured Senior Investigator or apply for up to five years of extramural financial support ($500,000 per year plus overhead) at a university or other external research institution.
