KY Cha Award in Stem Cell Technology
This award carries a $20,000 grant awarded by ASRM and supported by the Asia-Pacific Biomedical Research Foundation. The purpose of this award is to provide start-up funds to initiate an innovative research project in regenerative medicine and stem cell technology. Funds are available for salary support, technical assistance, supplies, durable equipment, or other project expenses but may not be used for indirect costs, or institutional overhead. A research project in which the applicant is the primary investigator is the essential core of the award. A progress report and a financial report on the work sponsored by the KY Cha Award in Stem Cell Technology are required to be submitted to the ASRM Office at the completion of the project or within two years, whichever comes first. This report should be signed by the recipient of the award and the Chair of the Department. Any published report must carry the acknowledgment “Supported by the KY Cha Award in Stem Cell Technology.” If the applicant has other funding for the same project then the proposed project must represent a significant enhancement of the research already funded.
Deadline: Dec. 1, 2023
Candidates eligible for the KY Cha Award in Stem Cell Technology:
- Earned an MD, PhD, DO, and/or DVM degree or their equivalents (MD degree not required)
- Be an independent investigator who has completed his/her training and has a full-time faculty/research staff appointment; note that clinical and research students, residents, fellows and postdoctoral trainees are not eligible.
- Have not ever received any other ASRM research award (not including Reproductive Scientist Development Program, Frontiers in Reproduction Program, and SREI/ASRM traineeship [T32] awardees).
Applicants need not be ASRM members at the time of the application but will be required to become members prior to the initiation and throughout the duration of funding. Awardees must maintain an active membership until the project is completed and has been presented at an ASRM annual Scientific Congress. Please note that ASRM members will receive preferential review.
