Faculty Research Award for Early Career Faculty Investigators

 This award is to support a faculty at his/her early career stage to do research in the areas related to trauma, shock, and sepsis, leading to be an outstanding independent investigator. Research topics may vary from basic cellular responses to clinical outcomes. Proposing translational research and clinical application are encouraged. Proposed research must have intrinsic importance, but may also contain a component for permitting the applicant to learn the methodology, theory, and conceptualizations necessary for project development.
The award will be $83,000 over two years, with $3,000 dedicated to travel to the Shock Society Annual Meetings for 3 years. Half of the $80,000 will be granted the first year, 40% will be awarded the second year contingent upon a satisfactory progress report to the Awards Committee, and 10% will be granted upon completion with presentation of results orally at the US Shock Society Annual Meeting.
