Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research Mentored Research Training Grants
Mentored Research Training Grants help anesthesiologists develop the skills, preliminary data for subsequent grant applications and research publications needed to become independent investigators.
The MRTG is a two-year, $175,000 award that provides funding to faculty members who have completed their core anesthesiology residency training within the past 10 years. Year one is funded up to $75,000, and year two is funded up to $100,000. The MRTG requires 75 percent protected non-clinical time for research.
Areas of Research
The proposed project must be in basic science, clinical or translational, or health services research.
Mentored Research Training Grant – Basic Science
Studies pertaining to any of the fundamental questions broadly related to anesthesiology. Typically laboratory experiments with cells or animals.
Mentored Research Training Grant – Clinical or Translational
Research conducted with human subjects, or on material of human origin such as tissues, specimens and cognitive phenomena, for which the investigator directly interacts with human subjects. It includes mechanisms of human disease, therapeutic interventions, clinical trials and/or development of new technologies. Studies would typically require approval from the local institutional review board.
Mentored Research Training Grant – Health Services Research
Outcomes and health services research examines how people obtain access to health care, the cost of care and what happens to patients as a result of this care. The main goals of health services research are to identify the most effective ways to organize, manage, finance and deliver high quality care. This grant is jointly sponsored with the Anesthesia Quality Institute.

Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract Career Development Award for Clinical/Outcomes/Education Research
Deadline: February 7, 2014
This award is to assist in the development of young faculty members engaged in clinical, outcomes, and/or educational research in digestive diseases.
The supported research can be focused on clinical, outcomes, and educational research in digestive diseases. This includes but is not limited to clinical trial development, patient-centered outcomes research, health services research, comparative effectiveness research, cost-effectiveness research, and educational research.
The award is restricted to surgeons who have completed formal clinical and research training in general surgery and are within 5 years of their first faculty appointment in a department of surgery at a medical school accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education in the United States or by the Committee for Accreditation of Canadian Medical Schools in Canada, or the equivalent national accrediting body for applicants from other countries.
At least 25% of the applicant’s time should be dedicated to the research and training outlined in the research plan. The Head of the Department and/or Division of General Surgery must ensure the applicant has the required protected time for research.
The SSAT award of $20,000 per year for two years is a career development award and is meant to support young investigators who have not been funded by a National Institutes of Health R01 Award or equivalent. In addition, if an investigator has received a similar type of career development award from another organization such as the American College of Surgeons, American Surgical Association, etc., he/she will be ineligible for the SSAT Career Development Research Award. It is the applicant’s responsibility to notify the SSAT of potential funding conflicts.
The award may be used to support clinical trial infrastructure (research assistants, data analysts, etc.), purchase of large administrative datasets necessary for conducting research, education/formal training in clinical research/biostatistics, and principal investigator salary support to ensure protected research time. No portion of the award is to be used for institutional indirect costs.
The recipient will present a progress report the SSAT leadership at the Annual Meeting during and immediately following the award period.
It is expected that the recipient submit abstracts arising from his/her Career Development Award-funded research to the SSAT Annual Meeting for presentation consideration, as well as manuscripts to the Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery, the official journal of the SSAT, for publication consideration.
