American Society for Reproductive Medicine Resident/Fellow In-Training Research Grant in Fertility Preservation
This is a $10,000 in-training research grant awarded by ASRM and supported by Ferring Pharmaceuticals. The purpose of this award is to foster the development of an innovative, short-term research project focused on Fertility Preservation. Funds are available for project expenses, technical assistance, patient expenses, supplies and durable laboratory equipment, indirect costs, or institutional overhead. The term of the grant is July 1, 2014 – June 30, 2015.
A research project in which the applicant is the primary investigator is the essential core of the grant. A progress report and a financial report on the work sponsored by the In-Training Research Award are required at the completion of the short-term, clinical or basic research project. The report should be signed by the recipient of the award and the Chair of the Department. At the conclusion of the project, an abstract should be submitted for consideration at the ASRM Annual Meeting in 2016. If selected, the abstract would be published in the abstract supplement to Fertility and Sterility. A final report with an accounting of funds spent also should be submitted to the ASRM office. Acceptance of the grant assumes that the recipient has no other major grant to fund the research project.
