The Neonatology Fellows Research Endowment Fund at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital

The MedStar Georgetown Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine Fellowship Program is thrilled to announce the creation of the Neonatology Fellows Research Endowment Fund. This endowment fund was established in December 2016 through a generous philanthropic leadership investment of $500,000 by former neonatal-perinatal medicine fellow, Dr. Albert Tano, and his wife. Dr. and Mrs. Tano wanted to ensure that future generations of fellows have the best possible opportunity to develop research expertise at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital. This endowment will provide ongoing support for fellows’ research activities within the Neonatology fellowship program. Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine fellows and their mentors are eligible to apply for this grant mechanism and are expected to use the funds to propel their investigations forward. Funds may be used to support fellow-led research efforts; for travel-related expenses to attend or present at academic conferences related to this research; or for educational endeavors to further fellows’ scholarly activities. Additions to this fund may be made by other donors, ensuring that MedStar Georgetown Neonatal-Perinatal Medicine fellows have adequate funding available to perform cutting-edge research during their fellowship training.
