For example, recipients of the esteemed DF Stiefel Scholar Research Award will each deliver keynotes— John E. Harris, MD, PhD, Aimee S. Payne, MD, PhD, and Michael Rosenblum, MD, PhD (virtually).

Clinical Symposium program co-chairs also invite renowned specialty experts to deliver leading-edge talks on a variety of themes. Co-chairs Janet A. Fairley, MD, Yvonne E. Chiu, MD, and Jack S. Resneck, Jr., MD, have selected five topics for 2023: Perspectives on Melanoma, Expanding Treatment Armamentarium, Case-Based Biology, The News You Need, and The Big C: Cancer.

DF Charles and Daneen Stiefel Scholar Award

Designed to support outstanding mid-career investigators, the DF launched the Stiefel Scholar Research Award in 2014. The generous $1-million-dollar donation provided by Charles and Daneen Stiefel enabled the DF to support three investigators whose exemplary research furthers the understanding of autoimmune and/or connective tissue diseases. In 2017, a second gift of equal size enabled three more funding opportunities for the treatment of skin cancer’s molecular and cellular basis (melanoma or non-melanoma).

A total of six mid-career investigators have received support from the DF Charles and Daneen Stiefel Scholar Award since its inception. The DF is highly grateful for the vision and generosity.

Former Stiefel Scholar Awardees

John E. Harris, MD PhD, Aimee S. Payne, MD, PhD, and Michael Rosenblum, MD, PhD have received the highly competitive DF Stiefel Scholar Research Award reserved for exceptional mid-career investigators. Each has utilized the critically timed funding to make significant strides in their research and contributions to the specialty.
