McCabe Fund Awards 2001-2002: Call for Applications
The McCabe Fund Advisory Committee is calling for applications for the Thomas B. and Jeannette E. Laws McCabe Fund Fellow and Pilot awards for 2001-2002. The McCabe awards were established in 1969 by a generous gift from Mr. Thomas B. McCabe to the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine to support junior faculty who initiate fresh and innovative biomedical and surgical research projects and who have received no or limited external research funding while in their first or second year at the School of Medicine or the School of Veterinary Medicine at Penn.
Junior faculty members who are interested in applying for an award this year, can contact the chair of their department or call Dana J. Napier, School of Medicine Administration, at (215) 573-3221. The deadline for submission is Monday, May 14. The McCabe Fund Advisory Committee will announce the winners at its June annual meeting.
Last year, Dr. Joseph H. Gorman, III, Department of Surgery, Dr. Mitchell J. Weiss, Division of Hematology, and Dr. Ming H. Yuk, Department of Microbiology each won a $50,000 McCabe Fellow Award.
