The investigator must not have received prior external funding for research; internal university funding is accepted.
The proposal must be for research to be initiated, not currently in progress.
The proposal submitted to the 2014 New Investigators Research Grant competition cannot be submitted to other 2014 ASHFoundation grant competitions. However, the investigator remains eligible to submit to other ASHFoundation grant competitions in the same year, if proposing to investigate a different topic.

Call for Applications: Alpha-1 Foundation Gordon L. Snider Scholar Award
The Alpha-1 Foundation is accepting applications for a new research grant, the Gordon L. Snider Scholar Award.
The award is named after Gordon L. Snider, MD, one of the most influential researchers in Alpha-1. Snider not only made seminal scientific contributions clarifiying Alpha-1-related lung disease, but also laid the groundwork for the Foundation’s research program. In particular, he stressed the importance of encouraging young investigators to pursue a career in Alpha-1 research.
The award’s objective is to provide additional career development support for outstanding young investigators who have continued to conduct research in Alpha-1-related lung or liver disease after completion of their postdoctoral fellowship. It is expected that the award will provide an incentive for a career in Alpha-1 research.
The Alpha-1 Foundation intends to commit up to $225,000 ($75,000/year) over three years to fund one award.
Deadline to apply is July 25, 2014.

American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation Travel Grants for the BMT Tandem Meetings
The American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation is offering approximately (10) travel grants of $1,000 each to hematology and oncology fellows to attend its 2015 annual meeting – the BMT Tandem Meetings – that will be held February 11-15 in San Diego, California.
The objective of the travel grants is to introduce young clinicians and investigators to potential careers in the field of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation.
Applicants must be enrolled in an accredited hematology and/or oncology training program and recommended by an ASBMT member and the applicant’s training program director. (In some instances that may be the same individual.)
Applications must be submitted on the official form by October 31, 2014.
American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation New Investigator Awards
Submission Deadline: October 1, 2014
The ASBMT New Investigator Awards are designed to encourage clinical or laboratory research by young investigators in the field of blood and marrow transplantation. The award, $30,000 per year for two years, preferably is to be used to support the investigator’s salary for his or her research effort. Alternatively, the award may be used for direct support of research costs.
To be eligible for consideration for a New Investigator Award, an applicant must be a fellow-in-training or junior-level faculty (an instructor or assistant professor no more than three years past a post-doctoral program or a clinical research fellowship).
Applicants with other significant new investigator funding from peer-reviewed extramural sources may be less competitive than those without such funding. Institutional startup funds for junior faculty are not considered peer-reviewed or extramural.
Applicants are encouraged, but not required, to be an ASBMT member. An applicant must have a sponsor who is an ASBMT member. The sponsor serves as a mentor for the applicant’s research and career development.
Applicants are required to submit the New Investigator Awards application, a curriculum vitae that adheres to the NIH biographical sketch format, a list of Other Support that also adheres to the NIH format, a letter of recommendation from the sponsor/mentor (maximum two pages), and a description of the proposed research that must not exceed four pages.
Judging and Evaluation Criteria
The review committee is chaired by a member of the ASBMT Board of Directors, appointed by the ASBMT President with Board approval. The Chair then appoints review committee members ad hoc, after approval of the ASBMT President but based on the expertise required to review the topics covered by the applications.
New Investigator Award applications will be evaluated for (a) scientific merit within the field of blood and marrow transplantation, (b) significance and anticipated overall impact of the potential findings, (c) institutional environment, (d) the training record of the sponsor/mentor, and (e) the potential contribution of the proposed research to the field of blood and marrow transplantation. As these are “new” investigator awards, less emphasis is placed on preliminary data.
The number of award(s) that can be made varies from year to year, depending on available funding.
Unfortunately, due to the additional work that would be required of reviewers and the short time lines involved, applicants will not receive written critiques after review.
The award winner(s) will be notified around late November or early December, in time to make arrangements to attend the 2015 BMT Tandem Meetings, February 11-15, 2015, in San Diego, California. The award(s) will be publicly announced at this meeting. The award will be activated July 1, 2015.
The award will be $30,000 for the first year, renewable for an additional $30,000 for a second year, contingent upon a report of satisfactory progress.
