2015 NYSCF Fellowship Brochure

NYSCF is supporting and training the next generation of scientists, both at the postdoctoral level as fellows, and as investigators pursuing innovative work that translates research into cures.

The NYSCF Fellowship Program encourages the brightest junior scientists from preeminent institutions to pursue research in stem cell research. Their projects range from growing bone tissue to developing ways to produce neurons for therapeutic treatment of Parkinson’s disease. In addition to an annual stipend, each NYSCF Fellow has access to NYSCF’s laboratory and presents at our annual conference.

Since its inception, the NYSCF Fellowship Program has created a community of more than 40 of the brightest researchers in the field. Formal and informal meetings with colleagues and mentors provide opportunities for the Fellows not only to share progress and information, but also to collaborate on projects. The NYSCF Fellowship Program ensures that the next generation of researchers has the knowledge and expertise that will be required to lead their field as it grows. Principal support for the program is provided by Fiona and Stan Druckenmiller with additional support provided by The Richard J. Massey Foundation for Arts and Sciences and other generous donors.

2015 NYSCF Investigators Brochure

The NYSCF Investigator Program builds on the success of the NYSCF Fellowship Program and provides five years of critical seed funding to outstanding early career scientists, supporting them as they move beyond their postdoctoral training to establish their own, independent research. NYSCF's Investigator Program includes two separate programs:

The NYSCF Stem Cell Investigator Program supports scientists engaged in cutting edge translational stem cell research with the potential to accelerate the path from bench to bedside.

The NYSCF Neuroscience Investigator Program supports truly innovative neuroscience with the potential to transform our fundamental understanding of the brain and how it functions.

Each investigator will receive up to $1.5 million in funding to cultivate their independent research and support a laboratory. By providing resources and support to exceptional early career researchers, NYSCF seeks to encourage a new generation of energetic, innovative scientists to pursue these fields of research and to build a community of exceptional scientists. Initial support for the NYSCF Investigator Program was provided by the The Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust. The program has been significantly expanded through the generosity of a Robertson Foundation grant.
