I have served as a board member of the A.P. Giannini Foundation for several years. I want to encourage everyone at UC Davis to apply for the 2015 Postdoctoral Research Fellowship Program.

Since 1951, the Foundation has awarded over 750 fellowships to postdoctoral biomedical researchers sponsored by California’s accredited medical schools. The Foundation awards new fellowships each year on a competitive, peer-review basis and fund the fellowship for a maximum of three years based on satisfactory performance. The program supports innovative research in the basic sciences and applied fields and trains fellows to become established investigators. The research should advance the translation of biomedical science into treatments, preventions and cures for human diseases.
