The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute offer support for promising investigators in hematology research and its clinical applications.
The NIH institutes offer postdoctoral fellowships, with stipends ranging from $18,600 to $32,300 per year for three years, to younger scientists who wish to receive training that will enable them to pursue hematologic research. More experienced investigators may apply for senior fellowships, with financial support not exceeding $32,000 per year. Areas of interest include the normal and pathological function of blood cells, iron metabolism, the role of growth factors in blood cell formation, transplant biology, and gene therapy.
Application deadlines are September 10, January 10, and May 10. For more information, contact Walter Stolz, Director, Division of Extramural Activities, NIDDK, or Ronald Geller, Director, Division of Extramural Affairs, NHLBI, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Md. 20892.
