Funding Announcement

The MIT-Philips Research Awards for Clinicians Program is designed to recruit frontline clinicians - physicians, pharmacists, nurses, respiratory and other therapists - to engage in collaborative research with MIT and Philips investigators. The program will provide an opportunity for clinical professionals to conduct original research in collaboration with experienced MIT and Philips Research investigators in the selected focus areas. It is intended to further engage the clinical community with the MIT-Philips collaboration and to accelerate the discovery of new ideas with high translational potential.

The program will provide to clinicians:

  1. An opportunity to build collaborative relationships with MIT faculty and Philips Research investigators.
  2. Salary support of $50,000 (plus associated MIT indirect costs) to cover 50% of the clinician’s time for research.
  3. The opportunity to advance great ideas from the clinical setting to the research development laboratories of two world renowned centers of discovery.

The program will provide to MIT faculty members:

  1. A funded part-time clinician to collaborate on a research project of mutual interest.
  2. An opportunity to collaborate with a researcher at Philips Research of North America, including the possibility of developing follow-on joint proposals for funding under the MIT-Philips Research Alliance.
