Smith Family Foundation for Biomedical Research
The mission of the Awards Program is to launch the careers of newly independent biomedical researchers with
the ultimate goal of achieving medical breakthroughs. The three‐year Award supports newly independent
faculty engaged in basic biomedical research. Investigators in the physical sciences (physics, chemistry and
engineering) whose projects focus on biomedical science are also encouraged to apply. Clinical research is
beyond the scope of this Program. In recognition of the importance of research collaboration by the scientific
community, collaboration is an additional, but not required, positive ancillary factor. These projects may
involve researchers within and/or outside MGH.
MGH is eligible to nominate two candidates. Preliminary Applications will be reviewed and assess by the ECOR
Subcommittee on Review of Research Proposals.
