Gary S. Gilkeson Career Development Award
The purpose of the Lupus Foundation of America's Career Development Award is to facilitate the professional development of second or third year rheumatology, nephrology and dermatology fellows in the U.S. and Canada, interested in lupus research towards a career as an independent, clinician-scientist at an academic, medical, or research institution, with a research program having considerable focus on the investigation of basic, clinical, translational, behavioral or epidemiological lupus research.
The CDA Award amount will be up to $70,000. A total of two (2) awards will be provided in 2018. One (1) award will be granted for a study focused on pediatric lupus research and a second award will be granted for a study focused on adult lupus research. The fellowship funding may be renewable for a second year of up to an additional $70,000 depending upon progress.
