APS Announces 2016 Future Leaders in Pain Research Grants Program—Opens June 3, 2016!

The call for applications for the 2016 Future Leaders in Pain Research Grants Program opens June 3, 2016. This year, APS Future Leaders grants will be funded in part by The Mayday Fund. Up to two $25,000 awards for basic science pain research proposals and one $25,000 award for translational science 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.

Application submission is open June 3, 2016, through midnight, July 11, 2016.
