The Osher Center for Integrative Medicine invites applicants to apply for seed grants to support collaborative projects consistent within the Osher Center thematic areas of musculoskeletal health, healthy aging, and mind-body exercise. The purpose of this program is to provide early funding for innovative projects in the field of integrative medicine including basic, translational, and clinical research.
Funds will be awarded on a competitive basis, as pilot grants of between $25,000 and $50,000, with up to four grants available in FY 2017. Applications will undergo a formal peer-review process and ranked for funding priority based on strategic and scientific merit, with oversight by the Osher Advisory Committee.
Osher Center Pre-Doctoral Fellowship in Integrative Medicine
Beginning in the Spring semester of 2016, the Osher Center started funding pre-doctoral fellowships in Integrative Medicine research. The fellowship program will be open to HILS graduate students and will provide $10,000/year to cover part of the student’s costs (to include stipend and/or supplies), as well as a $2,000 travel stipend; the fellowship is renewable for 2 years.
HMS Research Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Integrative Medicine (NIH Funded)
A key element of the education agenda for the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine is a research fellowship training program, which has been funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM) since 1999. Under the direction of Dr. Gloria Yeh, Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School and a clinician investigator in the Division of General Medicine and Primary Care at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC), the program allows participants to complete a Master of Public Health degree from the Harvard School of Public Health, followed by a year of protected time to complete innovative research projects. This highly successful program has graduated 20 post-doctoral (predominantly MD) fellows, most of whom have gone on to positions in academic medicine. The training program touches all of the major HMS-affiliated hospitals, with fellows past and present conducting research studies at different institutions based on their areas of interest. More information about the Integrative Medicine fellowship at HMS can be found here.
