Passion: The missing autocrine hormone.
Spring brings two exciting new initiatives for EFF and its fellows. We have received an unrestricted educational Grant from Eli Lilly to begin a Preceptorship in Adult Diabetes at Columbia University in Fall 2017. This preceptorship will not only touch upon diabetes but will incorporate interactions with world-renowned faculty in the area of obesity and diabetic dyslipidemia as well. This one week preceptorship should be an outstanding opportunity for those interested in a career in diabetes.
Our second good news is that we have again applied for an unrestricted Grant from AstraZeneca to conduct our diabetes research forum in January 2018. This 3 day intensive experience with an outstanding faculty, is an interactive work based program both for our research grant awardees, as well as interested applicants who wish a career in academic diabetes or focused clinical diabetes. This meeting is universally well received by our faculty and our attendees. This opportunity provides the ability to interact one on one with the faculty and is an invaluable opportunity as an early step in becoming a future thought leader in endocrinology.
Please follow both our newsletter and web page for updates on applying for each of these programs in 2017. For those of you interested in bone disease, several opportunities including our program at ASBMR are upcoming and we hope many of you will be able to attend.
EFF continues to look for new educational and research grant opportunities for Endocrine Fellows, and despite funding challenges throughout the field we hope that this years programming will be of great benefit to many of you. For those of you finishing a fellowships in June, we wish you good luck in your future career and would also hope that you stay in touch with EFF, especially those of you who will be young investigators, as research grant opportunities will continue to be available as well.
