The Ernest Mario School of Pharmacy announces the 2015 Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program. The program is intended for highly motivated undergraduates interested in a research career in the pharmaceutical and environmental sciences. Students are provided with an opportunity to conduct full-time research in areas related to Pharmacology and Toxicology, Environmental Health Sciences, Pharmaceutics, Medicinal Chemistry, Chemical Biology, and Clinical Pharmacy. The SURF program is open to undergraduate students currently enrolled at a university in the United States. Previous experience performing independent laboratory or clinical research is not required.

The 10-week program will run May 26 through July 31, 2015 and provides a $2,800 stipend. Students must be available for the entire 10-week period. Training includes hands-on research conducted in the laboratories or clinical practices of faculty members, round table discussions of research progress, and seminars on research careers and activities of the faculty. Students also participate in career development workshops and a field trip to a pharmaceutical company. At the end of the fellowship, each student will provide a brief oral presentation on his or her summer research project.

To apply to the Summer Research Fellowship Program:

Career Development Award in Adolescent Health

ScanGrants - Nutrition -

Career Development Award in Adolescent Health

The Career Development Award in Adolescent Health is directed towards promoting interest in a career in adolescent health. Funding is available for one award. Applicants eligible for consideration include: 1) Individuals who have already declared an interest in adolescent health and are pursuing educational opportunities to meet that objective; and 2) Individuals not currently in a training or other educational program focused on adolescent health, but who would use the award to become familiar with the field.

ELIGIBILITY: Any full-time student or trainee currently enrolled in, or accepted for admission to, an educational or training institution is eligible to apply. Applicants from all relevant adolescent health disciplines may apply. Applications are also encouraged from international students. It is essential that the applicant conduct research during the 12-month award period with a mentor or advisor in adolescent health. The mentor or advisor may be from any discipline, but s/he must have specialty training in adolescent health/development at the Master’s or doctorate level.

USE OF AWARD FUNDS: The purpose of the award is to promote professional development. The Society asks, however, that the applicant demonstrate a current commitment to adolescents through work on a research project. Examples of the way funds may be used include, but are not limited to, purchasing relevant journals or books, attending training courses, and supporting travel to professional meetings. Funds could also pay for research subjects and for research consultations. This award differs from the usual grant in that emphasis is on the applicant's growth as a person interested in adolescent health and not merely on the quality of research. When the award is made to an individual based in the United States (as opposed to an institution), the amount of the award will be reported to the IRS as income and a 1099 form will be generated. The individual recipient of the award is responsible for any taxes.

DEFINITION OF ADOLESCENT HEALTH RESEARCH: Adolescent health research includes any discipline of knowledge related to the health and well-being of adolescents. Examples include, but are not limited to, research in health services, basic science, clinical medicine, social and behavioral science, nutrition, and advocacy or the mass media.

AWARD: The award consists of $1,500 and a plaque to be presented at the 2015 Annual Meeting Awards Ceremony. The Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine reserves the right not to name an award recipient in any year without a suitable nominee. The historical purpose of this award is to facilitate interest in a career in adolescent medicine/health or to reinforce those who have already made this decision.

REPORT: Award recipient will need to submit to the SAHM Office by December 31, 2016, a brief final report (1-2 pages) describing the progress of the project, how funds were used, and recipient’s thoughts on the value of the award to their own professional development.

DEADLINE: Applications for the SAHM Career Development Award in Adolescent Health must be received electronically to ccody@adolescenthealth.org by no later than December 5, 2014. The winner will be notified in January and award funds will be distributed at the Awards Ceremony at the SAHM Annual Meeting in Los Angeles, CA. Download a form to submit your nominee.

Application Deadline: March 20, 2015, 11:59 PM ET

Award Amount: up to $50,000 maximum for one year

Apply via Proposal Central website

Proposal Central website tip: filter the list to show Epilepsy Foundation programs

The Targeted Research Initiative for Morbidity and Mortality supports research that generates initial data leading to more extensive projects that will generate knowledge that will ultimately improve the lives of persons with epilepsy. This initiative recognizes the need for research and new insights into these scientific areas.The broad focus of the morbidity portion of this program includes: identification of somatic comorbidities in epilepsy that occur more than expected among controls, including but not limited to diabetes, gastrointestinal bleeding, chronic lung disease, congenital cardiac abnormalities, heart failure, and pneumonia; and associations between somatic comorbidities in epilepsy and epilepsy outcomes, including quality of life in epilepsy, seizure remission, stigma and other outcomes. The mortality portion of the program is focused upon potentially preventable causes of death in epilepsy, such as accidents, suicide and SUDEP. Applicants are encouraged to examine risk factors for these causes of death in epilepsy; as well as interventions to decrease the presence of risk factors for these causes of death where risk factors have been identified.

Endoscopic Research Awards

ScanGrants - Obesity -

Endoscopic Research Awards

Application Deadline 5:00 PM CST, Friday, January 30, 2015

American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy Membership at the time of submission is a requirement of this award. 

ASGE Endoscopic Research Awards are offered to investigators (MD, DO, PhD, or equivalent) for projects in basic, translational and clinical research in endoscopy. The ASGE is particularly interested in endoscopic research pertaining to (in no particular order): colorectal cancer, Barrett's esophagus, training/credentialing/simulation, issues specific to under-represented minorities (defined as women and individuals of diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds), measuring/improving quality and efficiency, endoscope reprocessing and infection control, endoscopy/anesthesia monitoring and preparation, comparative effectiveness, 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 promote research in gastrointestinal endoscopy.

Eligibility

Candidate is required to be an ASGE member at the time of application, be an MD (or have equivalent degree), and be currently practicing in North America (international applications will be considered). Candidates who are delinquent on prior ASGE research grants (e.g., progress reports) are not eligible for future ASGE funding. If the candidate is a trainee, there must be a letter from the trainee's Division Chief confirming the trainee's ongoing appointment and position title at the institution for the duration of the grant; if the trainee applicant is not guaranteed an appointment for the duration of the grant, a contingency plan is required.

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.

Grants may be requested for a maximum of $75,000 in total funding, and spanning no more than two years.

Requests for funding pilot studies that will generate needed preliminary data to justify a larger clinical trial, as well as larger requests for definitive studies, will be considered. In order to maximize the funds available for research, budgets may not include indirect costs or travel expenses.
