For many early-career investigators, the only limit to their high-potential research is the funding needed to support it. Imagine, then, what an unrestricted gift of $100,000 per year for three years could mean—to their laboratories, to medicine, and, potentially, to patient care.
That’s the idea behind the President’s Scholars Award (PSA) at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, created and philanthropically funded to support the careers of assistant or associate professors at the hospital who have made outstanding contributions to their chosen field of research and have exceptional potential.
For this inaugural year of the PSA, four Brigham honorees are working to disrupt their fields with new findings in immunology, pathology, neurology, and microbiology.
