Thank you for your interest in the Emerging Physician Scientist Faculty Fellowship.

The Emerging Physician Scientist Faculty Fellowship (EPS) is a 15 month program that will include education, training, and pilot project funding, intended to inform a successful extramural grant application and submission. The EPS program aims to facilitate new and innovative, interdisciplinary, translational research with emphasis on diseases and conditions of importance to South Carolina's future. The program will support applications across the translational spectrum - from basic science to population health - including patient-centered and community-engaged applications.
