The Tommy Fuss Scholar in Precision Psychiatry

Applications Due: January 15th, 2024, 5:00pm EST

Description of Award:
The Center for Precision Psychiatry (CPP) is committed to fostering the careers of early career investigators in the emerging area of precision psychiatry. Precision psychiatry aims to identify and leverage individual differences in biology, lifestyle, environment, and the social determinants of health, to improve the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of mental health conditions. Integrating research, clinical implementation, education and training, the Center is committed to driving innovation to implementation and making discoveries that can be translated to clinical care. CPP is launching the Tommy Fuss Scholars Program in Precision Psychiatry to support innovative research efforts by early career investigators.

Scholars will work with CPP faculty on projects aligned with the CPP mission and goals including therapeutics, big data analytics, precision treatment matching, mobile health technologies, genomics, neuroscience, and clinical trials. Recipients will be selected by a CPP faculty review panel and will receive $50,000 for one year, inclusive of indirect costs, to advance their research project. Funds can be used flexibly to support salary or research costs.

The Tommy Fuss Scholars Program is endowed by The Tommy Fuss Fund, a private foundation established by the Fuss family in memory of their son to promote medical research to further our understanding of mental illness and develop more effective means of diagnoses and treatment.
