The Young Clinician Scientist Awards are targeted towards clinician scientists in glaucoma in the early stages of their careers. The goal is to encourage the development of young clinician scientists in glaucoma by providing funding for research projects within the first 5 years after graduation. This time period is critical for developing the skills necessary for a research career and establishing a track record of productivity. This is particular important for individuals with no other significant source of research funding.

The Mid-Career Physician Scientist Awards exists to provide research funding for investigators between 5 and 20 years out of fellowship. These grants are meant to allow mid-career investigators to initiate new research or continue ongoing research if no other sources of funding are available. Clinicians who do not have existing research support are encouraged to apply. The number of awards will be based on the available funding from granting organizations and preference will be given to applicants without current NIH grants.
