The American Pain Society has issued a Call for Applications for the 2018 Future Leaders in Pain Research Grants.
The Future Leaders in Pain Research grant program was established in 2005 to fund pain research projects of doctoral-prepared investigators who have not yet attained NIH RO1 level funding. The purpose of this grant is to encourage research in pain that will add to the existing body of knowledge, and to allow investigators to develop pilot data that will aid them in securing additional major grant funding for continued pain research.
This year, APS will award up to two grants of $25,000 each for basic science pain research projects and one grant of $25,000 for a translational science pain research project that demonstrate the greatest merit and potential for success. Possible areas of inquiry include use of analgesic medications, unwanted effects of pain treatment related to analgesic therapy, neuropathic pain, mechanisms of pain, and education and non-pharmacologic interventions or approaches to improve pain management.
To be eligible, applicants must be an APS member within six years of completing their doctoral degree; and not yet been awarded major NIH or foundation grant funding (R01 and/or equivalent).
APS will begin accepting applications for the Future Leaders in Pain Research grant on June 11, 2018.
