It supports research in biochemistry, cell biology, genetics, immunology, neuroscience, and pharmacology, as well as related areas in chemistry, medicine, and the biological sciences. The program does not ordinarily support purely clinical research but has supported research programs that include both clinical and basic components. Applications are evaluated on the potential of the applicant to make innovative and high-impact contributions to research over an extended period of time. Awardees receive $100,000 per year for three years.
