Senior Investigators will have well-established research programs and an international reputation for their research. They will usually hold a full-time academic appointment as Professor, Associate Professor, or the equivalent. Senior Investigators will receive US$250,000 per year for three years.

In supporting basic research, the Program seeks to break new ground. To this end, it is particularly interested in attracting investigators from outside the field to apply their expertise to the study of asthma. Prior research in asthma is not required. Investigators from within the field are eligible for awards, but they must demonstrate that their proposed work represents a departure from their current and past research. Because the Program seeks to develop new paths in asthma research, innovation and risk are strongly encouraged.

Application Details:

The proposed work should be directed towards uncovering basic mechanisms in the pathogenesis of asthma. The ultimate goal is to find new approaches to prevent, treat and cure asthma.

Applications must be received at the Program office no later than 5:00 PM, Pacific Standard Time on the deadline date in order to be considered. The next deadline is February 9, 2011.
