Call for Applications: National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation Edward H. Schuchman Research Fellowship
The National Niemann-Pick Disease Foundation (NNPDF) invites applications for research fellowships examining the biology of Acid Sphingomyelinase Deficiency (ASMD; i.e., Types A and B Niemann-Pick Disease), a rare inherited lysosomal storage disease for which there are no effective therapies.
Those eligible to apply for funding are:
• Predoctoral students with a lab selected and an approved thesis
• M.D., Ph.D and D.V.M postdoctoral researchers
• Early career investigators
Preference will be given to research projects that will improve our understanding of the biology and pathogenesis of ASMD. Preference also will be given to research projects developing new therapies for ASMD and for identifying biomarkers to improvide diagnosis and/or to monitor disease progression and efficacy in clinical trials.
The NNPDF Fellowships provide support of $50,000 per annum for two years ($30,000 per annum for three years for predoctoral fellowships) and are renewable based on performance. Applicants must be currently associated with a recognized laboratory.
This fellowship is named for Edward H. Schuchman, Ph.D. a pioneer in ASMD research, and supporter of those affected by Niemann-Pick Disease.
Applications are due May 1st, 2014, and should be submitted by email to the Research Committee Chair. Applicants will be informed of the funding decision by September 1st, 2014, via email. Fellowships awarded will begin October 1st, 2014.

American College of Sports Medicine Paffenbarger-Blair Fund for Epidemiological Research on Physical Activity
Deadline: Jan 16, 2015
Amount: $10,000.00 USD
Number Given: 1
Dr. Ralph S. Paffenbarger, Jr., a co-recipient of the first Olympic Prize in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine, made an extraordinarily generous gift to the American College of Sports Medicine by donating his share of the award to the College's capital campaign with the monies added to the College's epidemiology endowment. The interest on this contribution makes this grant possible. The intent of this award is to encourage researchers early in their career to become involved with physical activity epidemiology. The applications may focus on observational studies of physical activity and health outcomes, or on randomized controlled trials that are clearly focused on physical activity and important public health issues. Applicants are expected to apply within two (2) years of receiving a postgraduate degree or completion of clinical training. The award will be in the amount of $10,000 for a one year period.
The 2015 ACSM Foundation Research Grant Program application will be made available in the fall. There are two parts to the application. Both Part A and Part B must be submitted as one complete PDF application. Applicants for student research grants must have graduate student status during the term of the grant to be considered for funding. Applicants must be current members of ACSM at the time of submitting an application to be funded. Grants are open to all ACSM members, including international members. However, the NASA initiative is open to U.S. residents only.
The deadline for the 2015 grant application was 5:00 PM ET on January 16, 2015.
