Patterson Trust Fellowship 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." Two-year fellowships of $90,000 ($45,000 per year) will be awarded to Applicants working in Connecticut or New Jersey. 

The Patterson Trust will provide support to early-stage mentored investigators conducting clinical research with a focus on patient-oriented or translational laboratory research. The Program will help the Trust to pursue its mission by providing Applicants with the opportunity to demonstrate creativity and explore opportunities that may promote careers in clinical research.  Pilot and preliminary studies are encouraged.

Funding for cancer-related research will also be provided by the William O. Seery Foundation.
