National Institutes of Health (NIH) – Emerging Global Leader Award

The NIH Fogarty Emerging Global Leader Award provides research support to a junior faculty researcher from a low- or middle-income country (LMIC) academic or research institution.

This is a mentored research career development experience.  The goal is to help junior researchers begin an independently funded research career. NIH invites scientists from any health related discipline to submit this grant/award application. The proposal will address career development activities and a research project that is relevant to the health priorities of their country.

We Believe

Open Therapeutics crowdsources orphan and dormant therapeutic intellectual properties (IP) to scientists around the world. The goal is advancing research that ordinarily has not generated a public value or been recognized. This approach particularly helps underserved scientists to collaborate with their more financially capable colleagues.

How open science helps researchers succeed:

Open access, open data, open source, and other open scholarship practices are growing in popularity and necessity. However, widespread adoption of these practices has not yet been achieved. One reason is that researchers are uncertain about how sharing their work will affect their careers.

The review of the literature demonstrates that open science is associated with increases in citations, media attention, potential collaborators, job opportunities, and funding opportunities. These findings are evidence that open science practices bring significant benefits to researchers relative to more traditional closed practices.
