    Congratulations to the ASBMR Grants in Aid Program Awardees

    Date: April 02, 2014

    ASBMR is pleased to announce the awardees from the first round of the new ASBMR Grants in Aid Program (GAP).  The program is providing $1 million in research funding for twenty grants of $50,000 USD to ASBMR members who have submitted a peer-reviewed grant application to a major funding sponsor and received a full review but were not funded. The goal of the grant is to allow the award recipient to continue to develop the research and strengthen the proposal for future funding. The grant program is open to established and young investigators, and to U.S. and international members. The next round of ASBMR GAP Award applications will be accepted beginning April 7, 2014. Visit the ASBMR website  for more information.
