ScanGrants - Cardiovascular -

Call for Applications: Support for Ongoing Research in Thalassemia Grant

The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation invites national and international applications for 2014-2015 grants to support ongoing clinical research projects in Thalassemia. The goal of this initiative is to support investigators from all disciplines and backgrounds (MD, RN, PhD, MPH, MSW or other disciplines) with their ongoing clinical projects to address one or more of the following areas impacting patients with thalassemia: including but not limited to fertility, pregnancy and family planning; quality of life/psychosocial; burden of disease, cardiac issues and iron overload. The stipend will be $40,000 annually with possibility of one year renewal upon submission of a renewal application and approval by the Foundation’s Scientific Review Committee and Board of Directors. This level of funding would be appropriate for support of innovative small-scale pilot studies, observational trials, or ancillary support for ongoing interventional studies (for example support of a trainee joining an existing trial, or new biological endpoint analyses for an existing trial). In the case of ancillary studies, investigators should clearly document the support for the parent trial in their “other support” declarations.  Junior and senior faculty are eligible; fellows and trainees are not eligible. Investigators must interact directly with patients or patient-related data.  Awards will be announced in June 2014.

The completed application is due Monday February 3, 2014.

Endoscopic Research Awards

ScanGrants - Obesity -

Endoscopic Research Awards

Submission Deadline: January 31, 2014 at 5pm CST. 

ASGE Endoscopic Research Awards are offered to physicians for projects in basic, translational and clinical endoscopic research. The ASGE is particularly interested in endoscopic research pertaining to colorectal cancer, Barrett's esophagus, endoscopy training/credentialing/simulation, endoscopic issues specific to under-represented minorities (defined as women and individuals of diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds), measuring/improving quality and efficiency in endoscopy, endoscope reprocessing and infection control (especially vacuum canisters), endoscopy/anesthesia monitoring and preparation (especially CO2 monitoring), comparative effectiveness with competing technologies/therapies, NOTES, novel endoscopic treatments for obesity, endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and other endoscopically-guided imaging/intervention. The research committee will consider funding "seed" projects if there is an explicit outline for subsequent projects, and their funding plan (e.g. NIH, VA Merit), based on the preliminary data generated by the proposed pilot.

Objective

To foster research in routine and advanced gastrointestinal endoscopy.

Eligibility

Candidate must be an ASGE member (ASGE membership at the time of application is a requirement for eligibility for grants and awards), be an MD (or have equivalent degree), and be currently practicing in a gastrointestinal endoscopy-related academic institution or private practice setting in North America (international applications will be considered as described below). Candidates who are delinquent on prior ASGE research grant progress reports are not eligible for future ASGE funding. If the candidate is a trainee, there must be a letter from the Division Chief confirming the trainee's ongoing appointment at the institution for the duration of the grant, and their position title, and/or a contingency plan.

Grants may be requested for up to $75,000 in total funding, and spread over two years of study. Note: If the application is not selected for the Quality in Endoscopy Research Award, it will still be considered for an Endoscopic Research Award.

Requests for funding "seed" projects that will lead to further research, as well as larger requests for definitive clinical trials will be considered. In order to maximize the funds available for research, money for travel to meetings will not be provided, nor will funding be provided for indirect costs.

Selection Criteria

Grants are awarded based on the scientific merit of the proposal and assessment of the investigator's ability to complete the project (supportive environment, experience, training, availability of patients and other resources needed). The proposed research project must be approved by the ASGE Research Committee and should also be of such quality as to lead to presentation at Digestive Disease Week® and subsequent full publication. One objective of these ASGE awards is the eventual submission of larger research funding requests, including federal funding, and proposals with such potential will be given priority.

International Eligibility

ASGE International Members are eligible to apply for an Endoscopic Research Award (Current ASGE membership is a requirement of eligibility for grants and awards). The ASGE Research Committee will consider funding one international project for up to $75,000.  The project justification should explain the relevance of the project to the ASGE membership, and should explain if there are unique reasons why an international location for the project might be more feasible than in North America. All other standards listed above will apply to international applicants. Please contact grants@asge.org or Liz O'Keefe at 630.570.5623 for more information on eligibility.
