The Hartwell Foundation

 

2014 Top Ten Centers of Biomedical Research

  • Cornell University

  • Duke University

  • St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

  • The Johns Hopkins University

  • The University of Michigan

  • University of California, Davis

  • University of California, San Diego

  • University of Virginia

  • University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center

  • University of Wisconsin-Madison

The Hartwell Foundation invites each Top Ten Center to nominate up to four individuals for a Hartwell Individual Biomedical Research Award. In addition, Yale University, Case Western Reserve University, Northwestern University, Boston University and the University of Pennsylvania will participate at-large, and may nominate up to two individuals for the same competition. Based upon submitted Nominees, the Foundation will select ten investigators to receive a Hartwell Individual Biomedical Research Award, to be announced in April of 2015.

For each Nominee selected for funding, the sponsoring participating institution will also receive a Hartwell Fellowship to fund one postdoctoral candidate of their choice who exemplifies the values of the Foundation. The Fellowships offer support for two years at $50,000 direct cost per year to support researchers in the early stage of their career by enabling them to pursue further specialized training in biomedical sciences as part of their professional development.

In selecting each research center of excellence, The Hartwell Foundation takes into account the shared values the institution has with the Foundation relating to children's health, the presence of an associated medical school and biomedical engineering program, and the quality and scope of ongoing biomedical research. The Foundation also considers the institutional commitment to support collaboration, provide encouragement, and extend technical support to the investigator, especially as related to translational approaches and technology transfer that could promote rapid clinical application of research results.
