The Department of Dermatology at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center and Case Western Reserve University invites Early Career Investigators working at the level of Instructor through Associate Professor in the field of Hair Follicle Biology to apply for the Hair Follicle Inflammatory Disease Biology (HFIDB) Research Grant for up to $100,000 (over 2 years).
The individual selected for the HFIDB Award must have a strong career goal within the field of investigative dermatology. Responsive applications are anticipated to address research areas including:
- the interaction of hair follicle development and function with inflammation, or
- bulge area niche biology/disease as connected to microbiome, stem cells, innate and adaptive immunity, or
- metabolomic and inflammatory interactions between host epithelium, immunocytes, and microbes.
In addition, the research must focus on discoveries in the clinical or translational medical sciences designed to affect the understanding or treatment of skin disorders (e.g., acne, hidradenitis suppurativa, and rosacea).
