Edward Mallinckrodt Jr. Foundation

The mission of the Foundation is to support early stage investigators engaged in basic biomedical research that has the potential to significantly advance the understanding, diagnosis or treatment of disease. As an institution we may submit only two applications total for this competition.

The funds are designed to provide faculty members who hold M.D. and/or Ph.D. degrees, and who are in the first to fourth year of a tenure-track position, with support to move the project forward to the point where R01 or other independent funding can be obtained. Applicants with current R01 funding should not apply.

The regular grants provide $60,000 per year for a period of up to three years. The grants are not renewable. Institutions may submit a maximum of two proposals annually.
