Taubman Institute to appoint six new scholars in 2014

Six new Taubman Scholars -- clinician-scientists selected from among the University of Michigan Medical School faculty -- will be appointed in 2014 by the A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute.

Taubman Scholar grants provide $150,000 per year for three years for these select physician researchers, who combine an active clinical practice with basic laboratory science seeking new treatments and cures for the diseases they treat.  The grants are intended to fund the "high risk, high reward" research that often is overlooked by traditional sources of financial support.  In the five years since the institute's inception, the research of Taubman Scholars and Taubman Emerging Scholars  has led to nearly three dozen human clinical trials of new drugs and therapies for diseases ranging from cancer to muscular dystrophy to ALS.

Prospective scholars must hold an M.D. degree and  have until Dec. 1 to complete the application form, which will be vetted by the institute's scientific advisory board, a panel comprised of eminent medical scientsists from outside the university.  Click here for complete details and the application form.
