Faculty members wishing to pursue nomination for a Hartwell Individual Biomedical Research Award are encouraged to submit a letter of intent by 5 p.m., March 24, to Stephanie Endy, associate vice president for research, at email@example.com. The message may be up to 250 words.
Since 2011, five Case Western Reserve University faculty members have been selected for Hartwell Individual Biomedical Research awards.
The foundation funds 12 Hartwell Investigators annually for their innovative, early-stage, cutting-edge biomedical research that has the potential to benefit children in the United States. These awards provide funding to individual researchers nationally for three years at $100,000 direct cost per year.
Projects should represent early-stage biomedical research that has not yet qualified for significant outside funding, including those not yet submitted for funding consideration.
In selecting awardees, The Hartwell Foundation considers the transformative nature of the proposed innovation, the extent to which a strategic or translational approach might accelerate the clinical application of research results to benefit children, the extent of collaboration in the proposed research, the institutional commitment to provide encouragement and technical support to the investigator and the extent to which funding the investigator will make a difference.
