Research Funding through AST's Transplantation and Immunology Research Network
The AST Transplantation and Immunology Research Network (TIRN) is currently accepting applications for grant funding for research.
Deadline: September 15, 2014, 11:59 pm PST
They are currently accepting applications for the following grant categories:
The goal of the AST Faculty Development Grants is to promote the careers of young independent investigators within the first 5 years of their first faculty appointment, by providing funds allowing them to expand on preliminary research findings that will become the basis for individual research or career development awards from the NIH, VA or equivalent agencies. The AST Faculty Development Grants are one- or two-year $50,000/year.
The goals of the AST Fellowship Grants are to foster training of new young investigators who have the potential to contribute to our understanding of transplant science/immunobiology and/or treatment of transplant recipients, to foster research that is of high merit, and to encourage high quality applicants who want to develop a career in academic transplantation. The AST Fellowship Grants are one- or two-year grants of $50,000/year, designed to provide salary support for individuals who have spent two years or less (at the time of the application) performing research in the area of transplantation since obtaining their last post-doctoral degree (PhD, MD or equivalent).
The goal of the AST Transplant Nursing Grant, provided by the Wood-MacMillan Foundation, is to provide funding for a nurse performing a study in transplantation. This is a two-year grant ($5,000/year).
The Transplantation and Immunology Research Network (TIRN) is AST’s new program that will manage the research grant funding program, as well as provide other services to foster transformative, multidisciplinary transplantation and immunology research opportunities.
