Mandl Connective Tissue Research Fellowship

The Mandl Connective Tissue Research Fellowship, made possible through a generous endowment from Dr. Ines Mandl, are made annually to early career scientists conducting promising work focused on connective tissue. This includes but is not limited to, bone, cartilage and skin related research. A special focus on the genetic risk factors, as they relate to this field of work, will be of interest to the committee. The research fellowship funds up to two scientists at $30,000 per year for a period of two years ($60,000 total per selected Fellow). 


Any VP&S early career scientist who has been in their current field for less than seven years and is pre-tenure or job equivalent. Post-doctoral students are eligible to apply and there are no citizenship requirements.
