2011 Pfizer/Urology Care Foundation OAB LUTS Research Training Award Program
In 2004, a competitive grants program was initiated at Pfizer with a focus on improving the understanding of overactive bladder (OAB) and voiding dysfunction.
Pfizer's ongoing commitment to supporting research training and research exploration continues in 2011 as a collaborative effort with the Urology Care Foundation and SUFU. This year's program will be US-based in scope and offers support for two separate tracks: research training and research exploration.
The research training track is described in this Program Announcement and consists of the Pfizer/Urology Care Foundation Female Urology and Voiding Dysfunction Research Training Awards. For this track, mentors with research programs in female urology and voiding dysfunction will submit proposals for established or to-be-named physicians enrolled in accredited female urology fellowship programs to participate in 2-year continuous mentored research traineeships in female urology or bladder dysfunction. Up to $75,000 will be provided over the continuous 2-year period, and a commitment of 40% effort per year is required of all trainees.
For more information on the research exploration track, please refer to the Pfizer/Urology Care Foundation Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms (LUTS) and Bladder Dysfunction Research Exploration Award.
