The LE&RN/FDRS Lipedema Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program has been established to advance our understanding of lipedema pathogenesis. Lipedemais generally characterized by bilateral, symmetrical fatty tissue excess in lower and upper limbs.
The Program supports postdoctoral fellows in clinical or basic science research. Areas of research include adipose tissue biology, lymphatic biology, and areas relevant to lipedema including physiology, genomics, immunology and endocrinology.
In February 2016, a total of four postdoctoral fellowships were announced 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.Learn More >
