National Hemophilia Foundation Judith Graham Pool Postdoctoral Research Fellowships
NHF’s premier research fellowship program is named in honor of Dr. Judith Graham Pool. Established by NHF in 1972, the Judith Graham Pool (JGP) Postdoctoral Research Fellowships have provided a long legacy of support for basic science and pre-clinical research in bleeding disorders. In 1965, Dr. Pool discovered a method of extracting clotting factor from human plasma to formulate cryoprecipitate. This breakthrough opened the door to a series of research developments that would revolutionize treatment for hemophilia and ultimately lead to its management through recombinant replacement factor and current extended half-life therapies.
Candidates for the JGP Postdoctoral Research Fellowship must have completed doctoral training and apply for the JGP fellowship award from a doctoral, postdoctoral, internship or residency training program. Individuals with more than six years of experience since completing doctoral training are not eligible to apply. Established investigators or faculty members are also not eligible.
U.S. citizenship is not required, but prospective candidates must be affiliated with a U.S.-based organization (such as a university, college, hospital, government agency and/or lab). Only investigators associated with a non-commercial institution will be eligible for NHF grant funding.
NHF encourages all interested and eligible candidates to submit a ‘JGP Letter of Intent’ by no later than 5:00 pm Eastern time, Tuesday, February 9, 2016. All letters will be evaluated by members of NHF’s Research Review Committee.
