CU for Colorado

The Boettcher Foundation Webb-Waring Biomedical Research
Awards Program
supports early-career investigators engaged in translational research.

The University of Colorado and the Boettcher Foundation are pleased to announce the 2014 Boettcher Foundation Webb-Waring Biomedical Research Awards Program. The program supports early career investigators whose research has a direct impact on human health. The grants are intended to fund translational research that advances a discovery closer to clinical applications and that will improve the understanding, treatment and prevention of human disease. Awardees will carry the prestigious title of Boettcher Investigator.

For 2014, four Boettcher Foundation Investigators will be named and each will receive an award of $225,000 for research conducted over a one to three year period. These grants are designated for faculty who are within four years of their first appointment in a career-track academic position and who have not previously received a major independent award.
