The Thomas B. McCabe and Jeannette E. Laws McCabe Fund

The McCabe awards were established in 1969 by a generous gift from Mr. Thomas B. McCabe and Mrs. Jeannette E. Laws McCabe to the Perelman School of Medicine (PSOM). The purpose of this gift is to support junior faculty who initiate fresh and innovative biomedical and surgical research projects. Eligible faculty are those who have received either limited, or no external research funding while in their first through three years on the faculty at the PSOM or the School of Veterinary Medicine at Penn. Interested junior faculty in these schools are encouraged to contact their Department Chair. Please see the below links for additional information and the application. The deadline for submission is Monday, May 13, 2019. For any questions, please contact Connie Weinstein at
