Gaucher Generation Program - 2012
The Gaucher Generation Program distributes a limited number of annual awards to scientists and clinicians engaged in innovative Gaucher Disease research. The Program is intended to stimulate and support the advancement of medical knowledge and practice in Gaucher Disease through innovative investigator-initiated research. It represents Genzyme’s ongoing commitment to enhancing the care of Gaucher patients and supporting the Gaucher community. The ultimate goal of the program is to improve the lives of Gaucher patients.
For the 2012 application year, an independent, internationally-diverse committee of Gaucher disease experts assessed numerous research proposals. Submissions were considered on the basis of scientific merit, adequacy of the experimental design, and feasibility of the proposed study. Higher consideration was given to proposals that are clinically relevant with potential for improving patient outcomes.
We are pleased to announce that 3 projects will be receiving funding in the following categories:
- Two New Investigator Awards
These awards are intended for late postdoctoral investigators and/or new faculty, usually those at or below the rank of Assistant Professor. New Investigator Awards will be for a two-year annual award of up to $50,000 per year for a total amount of up to $100,000.
- One Established Investigator Award (EIA)
This award is intended for experienced and established clinicians and/or scientists in the area of the Gaucher Disease. Established Investigator Award will be for a two-year annual award of up to $75,000 per year for a total amount of up to $150,000.
