Founded in 1975, the ASPEN Rhoads Research Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, is dedicated to supporting the personal and professional development of nutrition researchers over the course of their careers. With more than six thousand members globally, ASPEN is a community that recognizes the importance of research, clinical practice, advocacy, education, and an interdisciplinary approach to nutrition support therapy.
To advance this mission, the foundation is accepting applications for its ASPEN Rhoads Research Foundation Grants program. Through the program, grants of up to $50,000 will be awarded in support of early-career investigator research projects with potential to advance the science and practice of clinical nutrition and metabolism. Project goals should be in alignment with the priorities outlined in the ASPEN Research Agenda.
To be eligible, applicants must be within ten years of completing a terminal research degree or medical residency (or the equivalent); be at or below the rank of assistant professor; and commit at least 20 percent of their time to research in a professional institute that conducts nutrition research.
