The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS) is now using one application for both of the following fellowship awards for the 2023 cycle:
Established through the generosity of Stanley and Susan Plotkin and Sanofi Pasteur, the Stanley and Susan Plotkin and Sanofi Pasteur Fellowship Award supports outstanding basic, translational, or clinical research in Pediatric Infectious Diseases. The two-year grants ($50,000 per year) are available for Pediatric Infectious Diseases fellows-in-training enrolled in certified US and Canadian programs. Two awards will be available for 2023.
Funded by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and jointly sponsored by PIDS and St. Jude, the goal of the St. Jude-PIDS Fellowship Award in Basic and Translational Science is to develop an enhanced cadre of physician-scientists who are trained to conduct rigorous, high-quality, basic or translational research studies in the field of Pediatric Infectious Diseases. This award provides support for 3 years to maximize research time.
Applicants are encouraged to consider mentors outside their Division of Infectious Diseases. A one-month rotation on the Infectious Diseases service at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is offered to provide an intensive experience in care of patients with compromised immunity. Collaboration with St. Jude investigators is encouraged but not mandatory. Award recipients will present their research each year at the St. Jude/PIDS Pediatric Infectious Diseases Research Conference.
Established through the generosity of Sanofi Pasteur, the PIDS Foundation is now offering a new Health Disparities in Pediatric ID Fellowship Award focused on addressing and eliminating health disparities in pediatric infectious diseases through education and training. The award will provide $50,000 each year of the 2-year period, enabling fellows to conduct research.
Research proposals must be related to understanding the causes of or testing interventions intended to eliminate disparities.
