Lymphatic Education & Research Network Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program

The Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN) is a 501(c)(3) not-for profit organization whose mission is to fight lymphatic disease and lymphedema through education, research and advocacy.  LE&RN seeks to accelerate the prevention, treatment and cure of the disease while bringing patients and medical professionals together to address the unmet needs surrounding lymphatic disorders. 

Lymphatic Education & Research Network Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards Program
The LE&RN Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is designed to support postdoctoral scientists in academic, medical or research institutions throughout the world. The awards will support investigators who have recently received their doctorates, a critical point in career development when young scientists choose their lifelong research focus. The goal of the Fellowship Program is to expand and strengthen the pool of outstanding junior investigators in the field of lymphatic research.

Each applicant must be working under the supervision of an established investigator who is the designated Mentor. Two-year fellowships ranging from $82,000 to $95,000 will be awarded to fellows who have completed no more than three years of postdoctoral training by July 1st of the LE&RN funding cycle.

Examples of funding areas include but are not limited to basic, translational or clinical investigations into normal and aberrant lymphatic biology; mechanisms of normal and pathological lymphangiogenesis; imaging and understanding the mechanisms that regulate lymphatic structure and function; animal models of lymphatic system disorders; and the cross-talk between the lymphatic and the immune systems. 

Projects in lymphocyte biology, leukemia, lymphoma and conditions secondary to lymphedema such as cutaneous infections are outside the scope of this program.
