The Fondation Leducq, a French non-profit organization dedicated to promoting international research in cardiovascular and neurovascular disease, has launched a career development initiative for individual junior or senior European or North American investigators who wish to perform cardiovascular or neurovascular research on the opposite side of the Atlantic.
New this year: the funding, $100,000 to $150,000 per year for six to 24 months, can be used in any academic host laboratory. To be eligible, applicants must have already completed their MD and/or PhD degree and have demonstrated a commitment to, and a talent for, cardiovascular or neurovascular research. Applications are due September 12, 2011.
