This highly competitive program provides talented, early-stage researchers the opportunity to carry out independent clinical and translational research for five to seven years at NIH. The researchers also have the possibility of additional years of financial support, at NIH or an NIH-funded research institution. 

“NINR is honored that Dr. Joseph has been recognized as a Lasker Clinical Research Scholar and I look forward to her continuing impressive biobehavioral nursing research in areas that span a myriad of some of the most significant health issues the public is currently faced with,” said NINR Acting Director and Scientific Director Dr. Ann Cashion. 

Lasker Clinical Research Scholars have access to the NIH Clinical Center, the largest hospital in the world devoted to clinical research. The Lasker Foundation provides additional developmental support by funding travel to scientific meetings and offering opportunities to participate in selected foundation activities.
