The CARLA SPARKLER RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIP, with support from the Medical Dermatology Society, is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the inaugural year of the 2020 Research Grant, a new funding initiative as part of our Research Awards Program, the first program of its kind dedicated exclusively to funding medical dermatology research.
The Carla Sparker Research Scholarship will support young investigators traveling to the MDS Annual Meeting to present their scientific work. This scholarship supports small research grants for emerging investigators intended to explore new research concepts, pilot a new experiment or undertake a novel or secondary data analysis.
This is a great opportunity for a resident or medical student selected for an oral presentation at the MDS Annual Meeting. The selected abstracts for oral presentations will be ranked by the MDS Education and Program Committee Members to determine the awardee. The awardee must be the presenting resident or medical student, identified as an author on the abstract.
