Through this first-time collaboration, the program partners will augment and secure the pipeline of scientific talent. The Faculty Scholars program seeks to: 1. Provide financial support to faculty at an early career stage 2. Select awardees based on their vision and potential for unique contributions 3. Offer mentoring and career development Scholars will apply molecular, genetic, computational and theoretical approaches to fundamental problems in diverse areas of biology. Those conducting research at the interface of the biological and physical sciences are especially encouraged to apply as are physician scientists and others studying biological questions emerging from and applicable to global human health problems, including malaria, tuberculosis, HIV, and other diseases that disproportionately affect individuals living in low resource settings. Clinical trials and research on health education, health care delivery, or health services are not eligible fields. Women and minorities under-represented in the biomedical and biological sciences are strongly encouraged to apply.
