The Hilda and Preston Davis Foundation Awards Program for Eating Disorders Research: Junior Faculty

SUPPORTING INNOVATIVE, CLINICALLY RELEVANT RESEARCH OF EATING DISORDERS THROUGH JUNIOR FACULTY AWARDS

The primary goal of the new Hilda and Preston Davis Foundation Awards Program for Eating Disorders Research is to support innovative, clinically relevant research that seeks to understand the underlying biology of eating disorders, including anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, leading to improved patient care. Clinical trials, obesity research, and binge eating research are outside the scope of the program. 

The Davis Foundation Awards Program is a two-stage proposal process.  All applicants will submit an Initial Proposal.  Based upon the review results, invited applicants will receive instruction to submit a Full Proposal.

The Program plans to support up to (2) two-year awards of $200,000 USD to Junior Faculty:

  • Applicants must hold a Ph.D., M.D., or comparable degree and work at a non-profit academic, medical or research institutions in the United States;
  • Applicants must have a full-time independent faculty appointment and their first faculty appointment must have been received no more than five (5) years prior to the award’s funding start date.

Applicants must review the Guidelines for additional detail regarding the Program, including Eligibility Requirements, Review Criteria, and Submission Instructions. All relevant materials are accessible via the right panel.  

The Program also supports researchers at the Senior Postdoctoral level. Click Here for more information.
