The grant is offered to encourage osteopathic resident physicians to engage in dermatologic research.
Applications will be entertained from osteopathic physicians in postdoctoral training programs and research fellowships in dermatology. Each grant supports one individual. Not more than two consecutive or non-consecutive grants may be awarded to an individual.
The grant is not exclusive and the investigator may seek additional funding from other sources such as the AOA Bureau of Research, governmental agencies, other outside agencies, college or hospital, etc.
The grant provides financial support for the completion of a clinical or basic science research project. Various types of research are eligible for consideration.
1. The resident may contribute to or take responsibility for a portion of a research project that is ongoing.
2. The resident may seek support for conducting novel research after developing a feasible research proposal.
3. The resident may seek support to develop a research idea. In this case, the resident should first conduct a complete literature search to determine the feasibility and need for the project. A research proposal must be developed by the end of the grant timeline.
All resident research must be conducted under the guidance of a research advisor (i.e. sponsor).
