THE YFS FOUNDATION BASIC TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH AWARD (BTRA)
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. The YFS Basic Translational Award seeks to stimulate increased research within each Basic Science Department leading to innovations for improving healthcare. It is anticipated that any scientific discoveries will be translated into therapeutic interventions for a wide range of diseases.
