Future Leaders in Pain Research Grants Program
This year's APS Future Leaders grants will be funded by the Mayday Fund. Up to two awards for $25,000 each to basic science pain research proposals and one award for $25,000 translational pain research proposals will be given to those demonstrating the greatest merit and potential for success.
The Future Leaders in Pain Research Grant Program was established in 2005 to fund pain research projects of doctoral-prepared investigators who have not yet attained NIH RO1-level funding. The purpose of this grant is to encourage research in pain that will add to the existing body of knowledge, and to allow investigators to develop pilot data that will aid them in securing additional major grant funding for continued pain research.
Deadline: July 9, 2018

The proposed research topics should be in one of the following five areas of inquiry:
- Use of analgesic medication
- Unwanted effects of pain treatment related to analgesic therapy
- Neuropathic pain
