The Thrasher Research Fund invites concept papers for its early-career awards.
These support the development of medical research in child health by awarding small grants to new researchers. The aim is to fund applicants who will go on to be independent investigators.
Physicians in a residency or fellowship training programme, or those who have completed that programme no more than one year before the submission date of the concept paper, may apply. Postdoctoral researchers who received their doctoral degree no more than three years prior to the date of submission are also eligible. Eligible projects must be conducted under the guidance of a mentor. There are no restrictions with regard to citizenship and the award is open to institutions worldwide.
Up to 15 awards are available per cycle, each worth up to USD 25,000 in direct costs for projects lasting up to two years. Additional costs for travel may not exceed USD 2,000. Applicants are encouraged to secure additional funding from other sources, such as from the mentor’s lab.
