Gary S. Gilkeson Career Development Award

About the Gary S. Gilkeson Career Development Award

Dr. Gary GilkesonThe Lupus Foundation of America created the Gary S. Gilkeson Career Development Award in 2013 to support early career scientists who are committed to lupus research. The award aids the professional growth of fellows (any year) and clinicians for up to two years of post-fellowship work in nephrology, rheumatology, or dermatology, or a postdoctoral researcher. The award is given annually, providing up to $70,000 in funds to each awardee per year.

This award uniquely prepares a scientist at the very beginning of his or her research career and unites them with a mentor who is an established investigator in the field of lupus research. The mentorship requirement provides valuable connections and often leads to identifying future opportunities. Many of the mentors have established cohorts of their own and are well recognized in the field.
