Five junior faculty have been appointed 2018 Vallee Scholars.
In the six years this program has been running, 24 Vallee Scholars have been appointed. Over this period, the Vallee Foundation has funded their research to the tune of $6,250,000. Vallee Scholars are invited to present their work at biennial Vallee Scholar meetings or, in alternate years, at Vallee Summer symposia. Their projects cover a broad spectrum of biomedical research including the sense of smell; CRISPR; tissue patterning; the maintenance of fat cells; morophogenesis; innate immunity; and transmembrane signaling. Each year, a group of institutions is invited to nominate one candidate. A nominee must have received his/her PhD, MD, or other professional degree, within ten years of the application deadline and, by the same date, have been in an independent research position (tenure track or equivalent) for six years or fewer.
