“I am honored and excited to receive the PhRMA Foundation Research Starter Grant in Health Outcomes. This award will be fundamental to my success as a young scientist. It will allow me to independently pursue research projects I am passionate about and recruit talented collaborators to my lab, improve my scientific reputation, and increase my probability for future funding to sustain my research program. The award will also allow me to develop other skills and gain the experience needed to be a successful independent researcher. In the long-term, I anticipate that this award will accelerate accomplishment of my career objectives. Thank you, PhRMA Foundation!”

University of Michigan
“The PhRMA Foundation gave me a fellowship in informatics that allowed me to get started on my post-doc in 2002. I am now a professor in the Department of Systems Biology at Harvard Medical School. I wanted to thank the Foundation for the fellowship because I’m not sure what would have happened otherwise. The lab I went to didn’t have any spare money to support me and the other fellowship opportunities didn’t fit the project I proposed.”
