Brief Description

Background and Purpose

To promote the research career development of young faculty clinician investigators, the Passano Foundation and the School of Medicine (UMSOM) have, together, created a mechanism to provide partial salary and fringe benefits for clinician-investigators in the early stages of their faculty appointments. This initiative is intended to address the increasing pressures on young faculty clinician-investigators to spend substantial clinical time and effort in order to generate sufficient funds to support their salaries. The purpose of these Passano Clinician-Investigator Awards is to help protect the research time, and thereby further the acquisition of experience and preliminary results for qualified young UMSOM faculty clinician-investigators during the time that they are applying for external research career development and other research grant support. Allocations from this fund will be based on a competitive application process that is tied closely to their concurrent efforts to obtain external research support.
