American Society of Pediatric Otolaryngology Dustin Micah Harper Recurrent Respiratory Papillomatosis Research Grant
The purpose of this award is to support basic, translational, or clinical research projects in recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP). Clinical or translational research studies are strongly encouraged and should be specifically related to the prevention, diagnosis, treatment, outcomes, or pathophysiology of RRP disease.
Candidates for this award should reside in the U.S. or Canada, be medical students, residents, fellows, private practitioners, Ph.D.s or faculty members. Junior faculty who graduated within 10 years of completing their training will be preferred for this application. Previous ASPO or AAO-HNS Foundation research grant recipients are eligible to compete for this grant. Candidates who have applied for support of the same research from other funding sources, and who are notified of an award from both another agency and from ASPO must choose only one of the awards.
Research supported by this award should be specifically directed toward the pathogenesis, pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention, or treatment of RRP disease, and may be either basic or clinical/translational in approach. While not specifically required, proposals which aim to introduce new knowledge and methodology from other disciplines to research in RRP disease, or which demonstrate collaborative effort with members of other related disciplines are encouraged. Projects must be designed so as to yield useful information within the period of award, but priority will be given to projects that are also innovative with promise to develop into new long-range or expanded research programs capable of attracting funding from other sources.
The grant application must be accompanied by letters of support from the Chair of the candidate’s academic department or from a principal scientific advisor or mentor (applies to junior faculty, medical students, residents, or fellows). These letters are to indicate a general level of support of the applicant, the fact that the Department will make time, space, and other resources accessible for completion of the project, and that the applicant will have appropriate supervision/support throughout the period of the grant. Applicants must obtain letters of support/understanding from all key personnel on the project. Preference is given to proposed projects that are to be completed within one year, although exceptional proposals that have duration in excess of one year will be considered. No portion of any grant may be used for travel expenses or for principal investigator salaries. If the applicant, department chairman, or at least one investigator is not an ASPO member, a letter of support must also be obtained from an ASPO member. The ASPO member does not need to be affiliated with the applicant’s institution, but must attest to the scientific merit of the application.
1. Amount: $10,000
2. Period: 12 months, non-renewable; maximum of one year no-cost extension allowable with permission of ASPO Research Committee Chair.
3. Use of Funds: A detailed budget and budget justification constitute part of the application and will be evaluated as part of the review process. Funding may not be used to support the Principal Investigator’s salary during the period of the award. Allowable expenses include consultant fees (e.g., statistician); salary support for research assistants or other technical personnel; computer software or hardware; purchase and maintenance of experimental animals; laboratory supplies and services; and expenses related to publication of results directly related to the supported project, exclusive of reprint costs. Equipment and supplies purchased with this Award become the property of the recipient institution. The ASPO prefers not to pay institutional (indirect) costs for this very modest award. If university policy stipulates that a portion of this very modest award must go toward institutional indirect costs, no more than ten percent (10%) of the total costs may be applied for indirect costs. The Total Costs may not exceed $10,000.
4. Review: Applications will be reviewed and scored by members of the Centralized Otolaryngology Research Efforts (CORE) Study Section, composed of ASPO members designated for the Study Section, and members of the AAO-HNSF CORE Study Section Subcommittee. Based on these reviews, the ASPO Research Committee makes recommendations for funding which are presented to the ASPO Board at its COSM meeting. Final funding decisions are made by the ASPO Board.
5. Notification: Letters of notification will be sent by June of the award year. Please do not call the AAO-HNSF office prior to that time to inquire about results. Questions may be directed to the ASPO Research Committee Chair (see ASPO website at www.aspo.us for contact information)
6. Start Date: The recipient of the ASPO Dustin Micah Harper RRP Research Grant will be announced publicly at the closest AAO-HNS Foundation Annual Meeting immediately following the award. Verification of human subjects approval and/or animal use approval, as applicable, as well as verification of tax exempt status must be received prior to release of funds. The awards may be activated as early as July 1 of the year of award, but no later than January 1 of the following year. ASPO reserves the right to revoke an award if relevant approvals have not been obtained within 6 months of notification of a successful application.
Applications are in a similar format to the National Institutes of Health.
All applicants must submit a Letter of Intent online no later than December 16, 2013.
