We are elated to announce that a total of four postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded through the inaugural 2015 LE&RN/FDRS Fellowship Program. The recipients will include three LE&RN/FDRS Postdoctoral Fellowship Awardees and, due to the generosity of the new Lipedema Foundation, one Lipedema Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship Awardee.
Award recipients are Echoe Bouta, Ph.D., Rachelle Crescenzi, Ph.D., Javier Jaldin-Fincati, Ph.D., and Annalisa Zecchin, Ph.D.
The LE&RN/FDRS Lipedema Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program was developed to stimulate and expand lipedema research, establish its clinical definition, and to understand its pathogenesis. The Program supports postdoctoral fellows in clinical or basic science research. Fellows must have 3 years or less of full-time postdoctoral experience. Each applicant must be working under the supervision of an established scientist who is the designated mentor.
