Doris Duke Charitable Foundation: Fund to Retain Clinical Scientists, 2016-2020
The Doris Duke Charitable Foundation launched the Fund
to Retain Clinical Scientists (FRCS) to build upon a growing momentum in
the medical research field toward supporting young physician scientists through
phases of intense, extraprofessional career obstacles. Grant money received by the CU School of Medicine will work to retain junior faculty physician
scientists who face a window of vulnerability that threatens existing progress. Dr. Judy Regensteiner, Director of the Center for Women's Health Research, is PI/PD of this grant.
The Art of Growing Grants
We believe knowledge is the first, best way to make a difference when it comes to heart disease and diabetes in women. Through grants, collaboration, and deliberate mentoring, we support scientists whose work promises to contribute to our collective knowledge regarding women’s health.
Our development grants are awarded in order to help scientists test, refine, and expand research projects. In our model, smaller grants help create work that attracts major federal and other research grant funding.
Every private, philanthropic dollar we raise eventually yields more than $10 in research grants. Since the inception of the CWHR in 2004, $1.2 million has been awarded to 52 junior faculty who have gone on to receive a total of $50 million in external funding.
