The Dermatology Foundation is pleased to introduce a new three-year research award made possible by a generous contribution from Charles and Daneen Stiefel—the 2014 Charles & Daneen Stiefel Scholar Award in Autoimmune &/or Connective Tissue Diseases.

This award is designed to support outstanding investigators committed to elucidate the basis, pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, and/or treatment of autoimmune and/or connective tissue diseases affecting adults and/or children. A generous mechanism of support providing $100,000 per year, this new entry represents the first Dermatology Foundation award intended for early to mid-career investigators.

Applications are now being accepted by the Dermatology Foundation. Click here for the specific eligibility requirements and application instructions. Interested individuals will also need to download the Stiefel Award Application Form (WORD version or PDF version). All award applications are due on or before Friday, December 13, 2013.

Questions may be directed to the DF staff at or 847-328-2256.

The DF's Research Awards Program offers career development awards, fellowships, and grants that are intended to advance the early academic careers and research efforts of physicians and scientists in dermatology and cutaneous biology. An emphasis is placed on supporting research that benefits the dermatology community at large and has significant potential to advance patient care. It is the expectation that the recipients of Foundation awards will be tomorrow’s expert teachers, innovative investigators and master clinicians in dermatology.
