Future Leaders in Pain Research Grant
The call for applications for the 2017 Future Leaders in Pain Research Grant Program is now closed.
This year APS Future Leaders grants will be funded by the Mayday Fund and the Rita Allen Foundation. 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.
Review the submission guidelines. The deadline for submissions was July 10, 2017. Applicants can expect to receive feedback in October of 2017.
For additional information, please contact APS at 847.375.6332 or Carly Reisner.
