The NYSCF Fellowship program offers postdoctoral researchers funding to pursue research that explores the basic biology and therapeutic potential of stem cells. The program encourages the brightest junior scientists to pursue stem cell research, countering the chilling effect that Federal funding restrictions have had on the field. The fellows represent an elite group of postdoctoral investigators who are doing innovative and groundbreaking research in the field of regenerative medicine.
The program was created to ensure that a generation of researchers has the knowledge and expertise to lead this research as the field grows. In addition to an annual stipend, each Fellow has access to NYSCF's laboratory, and participates in our annual conference.
The Fellowship Program has been generously supported by Stanley and Fiona Druckenmiller. Additional support has been provided by an anonymous donor and by The Shelley & Donald Rubin Foundation.
The New York Stem Cell Foundation has now released it's 2013 Postdoctoral Fellowship RFA, which is open to postdoctoral candidates at institutions in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. The fellowship provides up to 2 years of funding with the possibility of a third year pending satisfactory progress. Applications are due January 18, 2013 at 5:00pm EST.
