Throughout its history, AABB has established several posthumous awards to honor individuals who have made significant contributions on behalf of the transfusion medicine and cellular therapy community. The association's awards program enables AABB to acknowledge those dedicated to providing quality services and advancements in sciences. To continue fostering best practice and treatments, AABB encourages you to recognize leaders in the field by submitting nominations for AABB's Memorial Awards. (Several of these recipients are required to give a lecture presentation at the AABB Annual Meeting & CTTXPO. To provide sufficient preparation time, most AABB Award recipients are selected one year in advance.)
AABB Memorial Awards for which nominations are being solicited:
2014 Dale A. Smith Memorial Award
2015 Emily Cooley Memorial Award and Lectureship
2015 Hemphill-Jordan Leadership Award
2015 Karl Landsteiner Memorial Award and Lectureship

National Blood Foundation Scientific Research Grants Program
All applications must be received at the NBF office by 11:59 pm ET, December 31, 2013. Extensions will not be granted.
Funds are raised annually from corporations, blood centers, foundations and individuals by the NBF for the National Blood Foundation Research and Education Trust Fund (NBFRET) and the NBF. The NBF and NBFRET, which are 501(c)(3) organizations, provide grants for scientific research in the field of transfusion medicine and cellular therapies and support educational initiatives that benefit this community. Since 1985, the NBF has distributed approximately $8 million to 182 early-career scientists. The National Blood Foundation annually awards grants for one or two-year research projects, with a maximum award per grant of $75,000.
NBF is pleased to announce the availability of funding in 2014 for scientific research projects related to transfusion medicine and cellular therapies. NBF will award grants for investigator-initiated original research in all aspects of blood banking, transfusion medicine and cellular therapies. NEW in 2014, patient blood management is introduced as a research content area.
Important areas of research for the grant program include:
Alloimmunization, immune modulation, and tolerance
Animal models for the study of graft-vs-host disease
Biology of autoimmune hemolytic anemia
Autologous and allogeneic stem cell transplants
Detection of residual disease following stem cell transplants
Effects of growth factors in vitro and in vivo
Biochemistry of coagulation factors
Blood group serology
Biochemistry of red cell antigens
Molecular genetics of the blood groups
Studies on Lyme disease, West Nile Virus, SARS and babesiosis and other emerging diseases
Effect of allogeneic transfusion in HIV-infected and immunocompromised patients
Improved detection of transfusion - transmitted diseases
Cell separation, cell culture or expansion studies for cell therapy applications
Development of novel cell therapies or assays to measure cell viability or function
Pilot studies in regenerative medicine
Studies on mechanisms or roles of cells in stem cell transplantation
Studies on cytokines or growth factors involved in stem cell differentiation
NEW!! PATIENT BLOOD MANAGEMENT
Treatment of pre-admission anemia and bleeding tendencies; Intraoperative/postoperative blood recovery; Surgical hemostasis; Appropriate indications for transfusion; Changing physician behaviors; Blood utilization review.
Grants applications are evaluated on the basis of their scientific merit, relevance to and impact on transfusion medicine, focus and appropriateness to the scope of funding, and likelihood of yielding meaningful data.
An applicant must be a doctor (MD or PhD), medical technologist, transfusion medicine or cellular therapies professional. All applicants will be considered regardless of age, race, gender, national origin or religion.
The NBF accepts national and international applicants who are ideally no more than five years post-doctoral training.
Applications for research into innovative and new projects are a priority.
Emphasis is given to applicants who have not previously received an NBF grant.
No candidate is eligible to receive more than two NBF grants for separate projects.
No particular project can be funded more than once.
An application for the same project may be submitted up to three times if not already NBF funded.
Awards will not be made to increase the funding available for currently funded research projects. NBF grants are intended to provide "seed" funding that allows the principal investigator to enhance preliminary data. This data may then be useful in applying for larger grants.
All applicants will be charged an application fee of $150 except for principal investigators who are individual members of the AABB. AABB institutional membership does not qualify. To become an AABB member, please contact AABB's Membership Services at +1.301.215.6489 or email@example.com.
