AASM Young Investigators Research Forum 2023
Institution: AASM Foundation
Program Description: The Young Investigators Research Forum 2023 will be held from March-May 2023, with an in-person meeting on April 26-28, 2023 in Bethesda, MD and virtual meetings in March and May 2023. Selected trainees will have opportunities to network with senior investigators in sleep and circadian science, as well as connect with representatives from federal funding agencies. Here is what participants from last year’s Young Investigators Research Forum had to say:
“The meeting was a transformative experience and I am so grateful and thankful for the opportunity to have been able to participate - the ability to meet and network with peers, learn from established researchers and mentors, practice grantsmanship skills, meet and chat with NIH and VA representatives.”
“This was an excellent experience, and I highly recommend this career development opportunity to any junior sleep investigator.”
“The Young Investigators Research Forum was such a fun and enriching experience. I learned so much useful information about grant writing, grant applications, and foreseeable challenges as an early-stage research investigator.”
The 2023 program includes didactic presentations, workshops and small group sessions, all of which provide valuable insight into the grant peer review structure and process and further develop specific aims for a grant proposal.
Eligibility: This year, trainee eligibility has expanded to additional organizations whose focus areas are closely linked to sleep and circadian research. In addition to members of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine and/or the Sleep Research Society, researchers who hold current memberships with American Academy of Neurology, American Academy of Pediatrics, American College of Chest Physicians, American Thoracic Society, and/or Society for Research of Biological Rhythms are eligible and encouraged to apply.
Applicants must also meet the following criteria:
- Physicians (MD or DO) who are board-eligible or board-certified in sleep medicine by a member board of the American Board of Medical Specialties or American Osteopathic Association and have completed their sleep medicine fellowship within the past 10 years, or who are currently enrolled in an ACGME-accredited sleep medicine fellowship program are eligible to apply.
- Researchers (PhD or other similar doctoral degree) who are within 10 years of completing their post-doctoral training or who are currently post-doctoral fellows.
This AASM Foundation program is supported by Avadel and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine.
How to Apply: Applications are due October 24, 2022. For more information and to apply for the Young Investigators Research Forum 2023, visit foundation.aasm.org/yirf.
