The YFS Foundation in collaboration with Academic organizations will offer awards to recognize excellence in Basic translational research by a post PhD level junior investigator (within 5 years of completion of PhD) from any of the Basic Science Departments in the field of medicine. One such award will be presented annually.

NOTE: to promote “Team Science” applications can be made by more than one individual and if successful, the award will be shared equally.
