Financial Support

Postdoctoral fellowships provide $60,000 per year for 12, 18 or 24 months.

This award is intended solely as a stipend and may not be used otherwise. Funds may not be used for tuition, fringe benefits, or indirect costs.

I am deeply honored to receive a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Drug Discovery from the PhRMA Foundation at this crucial stage in my career. This opportunity will provide me with the support, training, and mentorship necessary to become a leading independent investigator in the coming years.
