The McCabe awards were established in 1969 by a generous gift from Mr. and Mrs. 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 through three years on the faculty at the Perelman School of Medicine or the School of Veterinary Medicine at Penn. Guidelines and instructions are also available to determine eligibility.
