Research Fellowships Support Study of Niemann-Pick Disease Type C

The NNPDF invites applications for the 2011 Peter G. Pentchev Postdoctoral Fellowships. These fellowships provide funding for research projects studying the biology of Niemann-Pick Type C (NPC) disease.

M.D., Ph.D., and D.V.M. postdoctoral fellows are eligible to apply for funding to improve understanding of the biology and pathogenesis of NPC. Preference will be given to research projects developing new therapies for NPC, and identifying biomarkers of disease activity for diagnosis and clinical trials.

The fellowships provide support of $50,000 per annum for two years and may be renewable based on performance. Applications are due May 1, 2011.
