Wound Healing Foundation 3M Fellowship Award
3M Award Announcement:
The Wound Healing Society Foundation, through the support of 3M Health Care, is pleased to announce the Wound Healing Society Foundation’s 3M Fellowship for the year 2013.
The purpose of this one-year, $15,000 Fellowship is to stimulate scientific research and career development of young investigators or junior faculty who are pursuing an academic career in wound healing research.
The award will be given as a gift to the institution accepting responsibility for the research environment of the successful applicant. It must be expended solely for the purpose of the sponsored research. The award shall be used only for salary support or direct cost expenditures of the funded research project conducted in the laboratory of the Fellow or the Fellow’s Sponsor. No part of the award may be used for indirect costs or the support of routine clinical duties. Under exceptional circumstances, a Fellow may apply for one additional year of support.
The Fellow is expected to present his/her research results at the WHS Annual Meeting and is encouraged to submit the completed research for publication in Wound Repair and Regeneration. The Fellow is also expected to acknowledge support provided from the Wound Healing Society Foundation 3M Fellowship.
Fellowship applications must be received by February 4, 2013. The Awards Committee of the Foundation will review applications and the successful applicant will be notified on or around February 25, 2013. The award will be announced at the Wound Healing Society Silver Anniversary Meeting at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver May 1 - 4, 2013.
