Rising Star in Urology Research Awards
The 2014 Urology Care Foundation/Astellas Rising Stars in Urology Research Awards program is now accepting applications!
To encourage young urologists to enter and remain in research careers, the American Urological Association and the Urology Care Foundation, in partnership with Astellas US LLC, developed this innovative award. This program provides supplemental salary support to career development awardees to ensure that their research salary compensation is competitive with that of other urology faculty. These salary supplements will be awarded for a period of up to five years, with an escalating payment each year. The participants are required to apply for independent, R01-type funding before the end of their award period.
