The Hartwell Foundation Individual Biomedical Research Awards – Information Sessions for BU Faculty

The Office of Foundation Relations is offering two informational workshops for faculty on The Hartwell Foundation Individual Biomedical Research Awards.

BUMC: Tuesday, May 13, 2:30-4 pm, BUSM Dean’s Conference Room (L-112) – coffee/cookies

CRC: Thursday, May 15, 12-1:30 pm, Development Office Alumni Board Room, 1 Silber Way, 7th Floor – lunch provided

These awards provide $300,000 over three years to pursue otherwise unfunded, innovative, early-stage, cutting-edge biomedical research that has the potential to advance the health of children in the US. The foundation has invited Boston University to nominate two investigators to the 2014 competition; nominees will be selected through an internal competition process, previously announced here, by the office of the Associate Provost, BUMC.

Interested BU investigators are encouraged to attend either workshop to learn about this family foundation and what makes a competitive proposal, including advice from BU’s current Hartwell Investigators.
