$20,000 one-year Patient Blood Management grant
Application deadline August 1, 2013
Funding to begin October 1, 2013
The SABM-Haemonetics Research Starter Grant is intended to advance the field of patient blood management by supporting a young investigator who intends to study methods of promoting blood conservation. This one-year grant provides starter funding to further scientific inquiry and clinical knowledge in the field of patient blood management. Preference will be given to junior faculty who will be advised by an experienced mentor. It is anticipated that the funded study will generate results that can be used as pilot data or preliminary findings to support future grant applications focused on methods to improve blood management and to promote blood conservation. It is expected that all applicants will be members of SABM, or will become members of SABM for at least one year.
Information regarding the application process is available at the SABM website (www.SABM.org and click research tab or at http://www.sabm.org/research-projects).

Request for Grant Proposals: Association for Surgical Education Foundation
The Foundation Board's annual Call for Proposals deadline is June 1 for grants to be approved at the October Board meeting. To be considered for full committee review, proposals must meet the proposal format guidelines and be submitted no later than June 1.
The Association for Surgical Education Foundation was established by the Association for Surgical Education (ASE) as a non-profit foundation in 1993. Its mission is to raise and disseminate funds to support innovative research and education projects and programs which will advance surgical education in North America. The Association and the ASE Foundation are separately-incorporated organizations.
Because of the importance of its unique mission, the ASE Foundation has experienced significant growth in the last five years. By securing operating, project and endowment support from the Association itself, several generous corporate partners, all past presidents of the Association, many surgery department chairs, and dozens of individual supporters, by 1998 the Foundation's assets and fund raising capabilities had grown to the point where the Foundation could make its own grants to deserving investigators. This strong financial base, combined with an especially generous three year grant from U.S. Surgical in 1999, allowed for the development of the Center for Excellence in Surgical Education, Research and Training (CESERT).
CESERT and the Foundation's Board of Directors are located at the offices of the ASE at the Department of Surgery of Southern Illinois University in Springfield, Illinois.
Since October 1999, the Board of Directors of the ASE Foundation had made available grant funds of up to $100,000 per grant for research projects which addressed the ASE's and CESERT's primary areas of interest. Proposals may be submitted for one- to two-year research projects. The maximum amount to be awarded for any CESERT grant proposal will now be $25,000 regardless of length of study.
CESERT funds are intended to support excellence and innovation in surgical education research.The Foundation's Board of Directors has outlined grant-making priorities that would most effectively advance the mission of the ASE and its Foundation. CESERT funding will be allocated to those priorities. Given the diversity of the surgical profession and its many specialties, grant categories are necessarily broad.
1. Innovations in Surgical Education that Improve Patient Care Research projects that aim to develop and test content methods that yield improvements in patient care in surgery.
2. Innovations in Performance Evaluation and Assessment
Research projects that aim to develop and validate new methods of performance assessment across competency domains required for quality patient care.
3. Innovations in Student Programs
Research projects that aim to develop and improve surgical education programs for medical students.
4. Innovations in Resident and Faculty Development
Research projects that aim to develop and enhance professional development, retention, and reward of faculty and residents who teach and mentor learners in surgery.
5. Innovations in Educational Administration
Research projects that aim to develop and test new methods, resources and programs for improving performance and accountability relevant to the administration of surgical education.
Research studies could include teaching techniques, performance evaluation methods, instructional and curriculum design, and educational program design. A proposal requesting support for development of new educational programs (including new methods and/or materials) will only be considered if it meets EACH of the following criteria:
a) the proposal is theory-based;
b) it includes a research component;
c) it includes a plan for evaluation of program efficacy.
The Foundation is promoting the availability of these grant awards to active ASE members OR to members of other national surgical associations. However, members of the ASE will be given priority consideration in the Board's decision making process. If a non-ASE member wishes to apply for a grant, the non-member investigators must work in collaboration with, or have their project endorsed by, an ASE member.
GRANT APPLICATION PROCESS
Investigators are encouraged to submit succinct proposals outlining their project's goals, costs, personnel, and applicability to other surgical education programs throughout North America. The applicant institution's plan and ability to implement the results of their project or program will be important considerations for the Grants Review Committee. This proposed plan should include elementary dissemination of information and findings via professional journals and presentation at local and national meetings.
The Foundation utilizes a variety of opportunities to publicize the results of its grant-making, it is expected that authors of funded proposals will give credit in all subsequent publications and presentations to the ASE Foundation for the support provided to underwrite their work.
