ASN Foundation for Kidney Research Grants opened October 11

By Laura Hefner

The ASN Foundation for Kidney Research (ASN Foundation) has now opened applications for its Career Development Grants, Clinician Educator Grant, and Research Fellowship program. The ASN Foundation funds clinical and basic research and provides grant support to ASN members at various points in their careers.

The ASN Foundation Career Development Grants Program provides funding that advances the independent careers of young investigators in biomedical research. Applications will be accepted for the following grants:

  • The Joseph V. Bonventre Career Development Grant, supporting a general nephrology investigator
  • The Carl W. Gottschalk Research Scholar Grant, supporting investigators conducting research in any area of nephrology.
  • The John Merrill Grant in Transplantation, supporting an investigator performing biomedical research related to transplantation.
  • The Norman Siegel Research Scholar Grant, supporting an investigator conducting pediatric research.
  • The Oxalosis & Hyperoxaluria Foundation (OHF)-ASN Foundation for Kidney Research Grant, supporting research regarding oxalosis, primary hyperoxaluria, and related stone diseases.

By submitting an application to any of the above grants, candidates are considered for all Career Development Grant opportunities.

The William and Sandra Bennett Clinical Scholars Program allows applicants to improve their teaching skills by providing them with educational tools to facilitate their teaching and by financially supporting applicants in the completion of a scholarly project. Application proposals may address any aspect of nephrology education, either pre-doctoral or post-doctoral, such as curricular reform or innovations in education. The proposed project must have impact beyond the applicant’s own institution.

The Ben J. Lipps Research Fellowship Program supports up to ten new and ten continuing nephrology fellows for two years in conducting original, exemplary research under the guidance of a sponsor. This program consists of five Ben J. Lipps Research Fellows, one Donald E. Wesson Research Fellow, one Jared J. Grantham Research Fellow, one Sharon Anderson Research Fellow, one Joseph A. Carlucci Research Fellow, and one ASN Foundation for Kidney Research fellow in 2018.

The Pre-Doctoral Fellowship Award Program funds PhD students to conduct original, meritorious research projects. This program will foster early career-stage PhD students, under the direction of a sponsor, who are highly motivated to make contributions to the understanding of kidney biology and disease.

Grant applications for the 2018 grant cycle opened today, Wednesday, October 11, 2017 and will close on Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Questions? Please contact the ASN Foundation at grants@asn-online.org.
