The Francis S. Collins Scholars Program in Neurofibromatosis Clinical and Translational Research is now accepting applications for its 2017 class of scholars. Sponsored by the Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program at Johns Hopkins University, the Program works to create a community of promising clinician scientists who will become leaders in neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) research and clinical care.

Collins Scholars will receive full salary support, stipends for research costs, tuition for relevant coursework, travel costs for scientific meetings, mentor stipends, a curriculum for translational science expertise, and a research community for clinical translational NF1 research.

Applicants must be in the last stages of their post-doctoral training or in the first seven years of a faculty appointment to be considered. The deadline to submit applications is April 10, 2017. For more details on eligibility and other requirements, check out the Collins Scholar Application Guideline and Instructions page.
