Postdoctoral Fellowship grants
June 17, 2016
PDF Grants seek to attract and support promising scientists embarking on careers dedicated to breast cancer research and who have no more than 3 years post-completion of their most recent clinical fellowship, 5 years post-completion of their most recent residency (for physicians), or 5 years post-completion of their most recent Ph.D. By providing funding to outstanding postdoctoral/postgraduate fellows under the guidance of a mentor, Komen seeks to ensure that a diverse pool of highly trained scientists will emerge as the next generation of leaders in the field of breast cancer research. PDF Grants provide support for research projects that have significant potential to advance our understanding of breast cancer, lead to reductions in breast cancer incidence and/or mortality, and move us toward the goal of a world without breast cancer.
Duration of funding: 2-3 years
