The ASPEN Rhoads Research Foundation invites applications for its ASPEN Rhoads Research Foundation Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $25,000 will be awarded in support of research projects by early-career investigators with the potential to advance the science and practice of clinical nutrition and metabolism. Project goals should align with the priorities outlined in the ASPEN Research Agenda.
Future research should include both basic science-oriented investigations aimed at improving the understanding of the science of nutrient regulation in different disease states, and clinical and translational research to determine how the practice of nutrition support can continue to be refined and individualized to optimize clinical outcomes.
To be eligible, applicants must be within ten years of completing a terminal research degree, medical residency, or end of post-graduate clinical training (or the equivalent); be at or below the rank of assistant professor, and commit at least 20 percent of their time to research in a professional institute that conducts nutrition research.
Please contact Gwen Allouch if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
