Scholars in Translational Medicine (STM) Program

Fully funded by philanthropy, the STM Program supports the early stages of a physician-scientist’s academic tenure at UCLA by providing the essential resources for junior faculty to pursue careers in both basic and clinical research. The STM Program provides awards to support highly competitive applications from UCLA faculty within the first three years of their academic appointment. Applicants must demonstrate a clear connection to clinical translational research. The STM Program is intended to support the careers of those scientists who aim to accelerate the application of scientific discoveries to the clinic including and beyond the stem cell field. The STM Program award provides one year of support of $50,000 with a possible annual renewal for up to three years depending on the progress of the research and the availability of funds.
