The National Eczema Association acts as the voice, resource, and a hub for the millions of Americans who are living with eczema.
To help advance this mission, the organization is inviting applications for its Catalyst Research Grant program. Through the program, early-career researchers will be awarded grants of up to $50,000 in support of novel and promising eczema research aimed at gathering a preliminary yet meaningful body of data that helps advance the field.
The foundation has identified the following research priorities: cutting-edge basic and translational science; novel insights with respect to eczema heterogeneity; innovations in clinical practice and care; understanding and alleviating disease burden; and/or eczema prevention.
Eligible applicants include assistant professors (or equivalent) without current or previous NIH R funding as a senior or co-PI, postdoctoral fellows, medical residents or fellows, research associates, and nurse practitioners. Applicants need not be a U.S. citizen and the research need not take place in the United States.
See the National Eczema Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
