New Award Supports Kidney Research Scholar from Historically Disadvantaged Background

ASN recently announced the society is partnering with the Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program (AMFDP) of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to support the career development of a kidney research scholar from a historically disadvantaged background.

The AMFPD awards 4-year post-residency grants to support the research and career development of physicians and dentists from disadvantaged backgrounds. The program, a long-running initiative of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is designed to increase the number of faculty who achieve senior rank in academic medicine and dentistry and to foster the development of succeeding classes of such physicians and dentists.
