Patterson Trust Mentored Clinical Research Award

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 Awards of $90,000 ($45,000 per year) will be awarded to Applicants working in Connecticut, New Jersey and Rhode Island.

The Patterson Trust will support mentored clinical investigators in the early stages of their research careers across a wide range of disciplines, including clinical research, health services or policy research, health education, or epidemiological studies including comparative outcomes research. The Program also seeks to impact public health by supporting researchers with an interest in and commitment to population health issues. Pilot and preliminary studies are encouraged.

While the majority of funding comes from the Patterson Trust, support for cancer-related research will also be provided by the William O. Seery Foundation. The Seery Foundation was created in 2006 to support “research for the treatment and cure of cancer of all types.”
