LE&RN Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program -- 2016 grant cycle announced

LE&RN is pleased to announce the 2016 Grant Cycle of the LE&RN Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program. The goal of the Program is to expand and strengthen the pool of outstanding junior investigators in the field of lymphatic research. The awards will support investigators who have recently received their doctorates, a critical point in career development when young scientists choose their lifelong research focus. These awards are made possible through a generous bequest from Dorothea M. Weitzner and are designated the HENRY M. WEITZNER, EDNA K. WEITZNER, DOROTHEA M. WEITZNER AND MORTON L. WEITZNER RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS.
