Wellcome Welcomes Visiting Professors
Universities interested in hosting leading research scientists can tap the Burroughs Wellcome Fund. Each year, Wellcome Visiting Professorships in the Basic Medical Sciences are presented to 21 scientists - three each in physiology, biochemistry/molecular biology, pharmacology, pathology, nutrition, immunology, and cell biology - for visits of two to five days at U.S. institutions.
The Wellcome Visiting Professors teach, confer with students and faculty, and deliver a Wellcome Lecture. The program is administered by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. Applications must be submitted by the institution hosting the visit. The fund provides $1,500 to the visiting scientist, $350 to the host institution and air fare reimbursement for the awardee and his or her spouse. The deadline is May 1.
