The Hartwell Foundation provides funding for "early-stage,
innovative, and cutting-edge" biomedical research with the potential
to benefit the health of children in the United States. The Foundation
is principally interested in proposals from faculty in medicine and
biomedical engineering and in work that may be considered high-risk.
This foundation seeks out projects that address an unmet need, will
have a major impact on the health of children, make use of technology,
have a significant potential for clinical application in five (5) to
eight (8) years, and are not yet eligible for funding from other sources.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens, and faculty members at any level are
eligible to apply.
The Foundation will select ten (10) individuals
to receive an Award that will provide research support totaling $300K
(to be distributed in increments of $100K each year for a period of
three years). Johns Hopkins can submit four (4) nominations for this

The Hartwell Postdoctoral Fellowship is
awarded to a highly promising young scientist in medicine, biomedical
engineering, or a closely related field who is engaged in innovative
biomedical research with the potential to benefit the health of children
in the United States. This Fellowship is intended to enable a scientist
in the early stage of his or her research career to pursue further specialized
training and career development. A JHU department can either (1) encourage
a current postdoctoral fellow to apply for this award OR (2) submit
an application for the Department to use the Hartwell Fellowship award
to recruit a new postdoctoral fellow. Hartwell Fellows must be U.S.
