American Society of Hematology - Scholar Awards

Synopsis:
The ASH Scholar Awards are designed to support hematologists who have chosen a career in research by providing partial salary or other support during that critical period required for completion of training and achievement of status as an independent investigator.

Deadline for Letters of Intent: May 1, 2014

The official announcement and description of this opportunity may be found on the funding agency's website:
http://www.hematology.org/Awards/Scholar/2407.aspx

Areas of Interest:
Research Supported:

Basic Research: ASH considers basic research to include a broad spectrum of studies on genes, proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, biochemical and signaling pathways, receptors, cells and animals, as well as samples obtained from humans, all of which are designed to further our understanding of the blood, bone marrow, and related organs or the pathogenesis of blood disorders. The emphasis for grants in this category should be on the discovery of new knowledge in a traditional laboratory setting.

Clinical/Translational Research: ASH considers clinical/translational research to include translational research, patient-oriented research, and outcomes-based research. ASH emphasizes that clinical/translational research must involve substantial interaction with patients.
