    ASBMR is pleased to announce the awardees from the second round of the ASBMR Grants in Aid Program (GAP). The program provides $1 million in research funding for 20 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 final round of the ASBMR GAP Award is now open! Applications will be accepted until Monday, December 1. Visit the ASBMR website for more information.
