Patterson Trust Awards Program in Clinical Research
The Robert E. Leet and Clara Guthrie Patterson Trust was established in 1980 for the advancement of medical science, particularly research "relating to human diseases, their causes and relief." Up to four one-year $100,000 grants will be awarded to NIH-funded K23 or K08 Award Recipients working in Connecticut or New Jersey.
The Patterson Trust will provide support to mentored investigators conducting clinical research across a range of research disciplines, broadly defined to include patient-oriented research and translational laboratory research. The primary goal of the Program is to accelerate clinical research by offering K23 and K08 Award Recipients the resources to explore research activities not supported by the NIH K Awards. Pilot and preliminary studies are encouraged.
