"We're looking for productive, creative, and innovative young scientists who are not afraid to think outside the box," said Susan Croll, Ph.D., a Regeneron scientist who directs the postdoctoral program at Regeneron. "The results of their research proposal should have the potential to drive biomedicine forward."
Ten finalists were invited to Regeneron in April to meet with scientists, give presentations about their proposals, and tour the Company's facilities. The two winning trainees will each receive $50,000, and the institutions nominating the two winners will each receive a $5,000 donation to support their seminar series. The remaining finalists will each be awarded $5,000, except for the two recipients of "Honorable Mentions," who will each receive $10,000.
"Regeneron is proud to support and encourage early career scientists as they forge their futures in biomedicine. To build the pipeline of promising new treatments for unmet medical needs, we must also develop the pipeline of talented new medical researchers," concluded Dr. Croll.
