American Society of Transplantation: Fellowship Research Grants
Deadline: December 1, 2020
Category: Health Sciences; Transplatation,
Established in 1982, the American Society of Transplantation works to support physicians and health professionals interested in transplantation medicine and biology.
To advance this mission, AST welcomes applications for its Fellowship Research Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $50,000 per year for up to two years will be awarded to early-career investigators with potential to contribute to understanding of transplant science/immunobiology and/or treatment of transplant recipients.
The program supports basic, clinical, or translational science research on any research topic related to solid organ transplant.
To be eligible, applicants must hold an MD, PhD, PharmD, or equivalent degree and must be within the first two years of their postdoctoral training (not including clinical training) by the grant application deadline. Applicants who have worked in other fields or taken a leave of absence are eligible beyond this two-year period, but such exceptions must be directly addressed in a sponsor’s letter. Throughout the period of the grant, the applicant must be at a “fellowship training” level and may not hold an independent faculty level position or a salaried senior staff position (or equivalent). AST defines an independent faculty level position as a) assistant professor or equivalent; or b) regardless of title, institutional support that includes independent lab space and/or start-up funds that enable independent research.
