Clinical Research Seed Grants
In recognition of the importance of clinical investigation in vascular disease, the SVS Foundation announces the Clinical Research Seed Grant program.
It is vitally important to patients and to the specialty that vascular surgeons play prominent roles in both industry and investigator-initiated clinical trials. The Clinical Research Seed Grant program has the following goals:
- Encourage the interest and development of clinical investigators among the SVS membership, particularly junior members or those with limited prior experience as Principal Investigators
- Provide direct support for pilot clinical projects that have potential to develop into larger studies fundable by industry or governmental sources
Application Deadline: March 1, 2022
The Principal Investigator for the Clinical Research Seed Grant must be 1) an SVS Active Member within the first 10 years of practice or 2) a fellowship- or integrated residency-trained, board-eligible, vascular surgeon within the first 10 years of practice with a full-time faculty position with an SVS Active Member serving as mentor.
The Principal Investigator may submit only one application for the Clinical Research Seed Grant. Residents and fellows are not eligible.
$25,000 will be awarded for direct costs for a one-year period. Costs for laboratory assays, imaging studies (as appropriate), data collection, and statistical support are allowable. Principal investigator salary, institutional overhead expenses, major equipment and travel expenses are not allowed.
