Current Fellowship Opportunity Sponsored by the WHF and 3M Health Care

3M The award is paid to the U.S. University or Medical School accepting responsibility for the research environment of the successful applicant. The award is restricted because it is intended and designated solely for salary support or direct research costs. No part of the award may be used for indirect costs or the support of routine clinical duties. Under exceptional circumstances, a Fellow may request a one year extension.

The Wound Healing Foundation, through the support of 3M Health Care, is pleased to announce the Wound Healing Foundation's 3M Fellowship for the next year.
