The A.P. Giannini Foundation invites physician-scientists and junior researchers with six to 36 months of postdoctoral research experience to apply to the 2017 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program. The fellowship program supports innovative research in the basic sciences and applied fields, and trains fellows to become established investigators. The research project should advance the translation of biomedical science into treatments, preventions, and cures for human diseases. The current fellowship stipends are $50,000 in Year 1, $50,000 in Year 2 and $52,000 in Year 3.
A. P. was a carrier of hemophilia and committed to promoting the discovery and treatment of human disease. On his 75th birthday, May 6, 1945, he created and endowed the A. P.
