Meniscal Allograft Transplantation Graft

$300,000
Faculty with PI eligibility. At least one investigator on each application must be a full AOSSM member. Collaborative, multi-center studies will be strongly encouraged and will be given special consideration in the review process.
AOSSM, in partnership with the Musculoskeletal Foundation (MTF), is pleased to announce a one-time grant of $300,000 to support a research project that focuses on meniscal allograft transplantation.
The purpose of this grant is to foster research for clinically relevant biomechanical studies, basic science studies, preclinical or clinical studies related to meniscal transplantation.

American Society of Transplantation (AST)

American Society of Transplantation (AST)
Clinical Science Grant

You will need to become a member of AST if you are not already one.
This is a two-year grant ($40,000/year) for Junior Faculty. The goal of the AST Clinical Science Faculty Development Grant is to promote the careers of young independent investigators within the first 5 years of their first faculty appointment, by providing funds allowing them to expand on preliminary research findings that will become the basis for individual research or career development awards from the NIH, VA, or equivalent agencies.
Deadline: Fall 2012 TBA
Webpage will be updated in the late summer/early fall
http://www.a-s-t.org/research-funding/faculty-grants



American Society of Transplantation (AST)
Branch Out Grant

You will need to become a member of AST if you are not already one.
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility (often at junior to mid-career levels)
This one year, $40,000 ($20,000 to each investigator) grant is designed to support a new collaboration between a transplant researcher who is an AST member and a basic science investigator who is neither an AST member nor a transplant researcher. This grant aims to encourage talented independent investigators (often, at junior to mid–career levels), to integrate basic science and transplantation research that will lead to future funding from the NIH, the VA or equivalent agencies. Note the distinct eligibility and application requirements for this grant. This AST Branch Out Grant is a distinct category that is not considered as part of the general pool of AST Faculty Grants.
Deadline: Fall 2012 TBA
Webpage will be updated in the late summer/early fall

$75K
For assistant professors
The important focus of research is transfusion medicine, to include aspects of immunology, hematology, tissue and transplantation medicine, cellular therapies, emerging infectious disease, immunohematology, donor health, and implementation of technological devices.
