The Pulmonary Hypertension Association (PHA) encourages pulmonary hypertension professionals to apply for two research grants. They are:
Early Career Mentored Scientist Award
The grant covers up to $65,000 for one year. Proposals must be pulmonary hypertension (PH)-related research projects that have been favorably reviewed for a National Institutes of Health Early Career Award (K award) but not funded.
The award provides bridge funding so the project can generate sufficient preliminary data to make it highly competitive when resubmitted to NIH.
See the policy and guidelines, and apply here. Apply by March 20.
Innovation Research Award
The award supports new areas of PH research that couldn’t have been explored without PHA funding. Any areas of innovative pulmonary hypertension research will be accepted. Up to $60,000 a year for two years is available.
U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or non-residents working at U.S.-based institutions can apply. Applicants must have Ph.D. degrees or equivalent; doctoral-level clinical degrees in public health or other health science (such as M.D., D.O., PharmD or Ph.D.); and have completed all fellowship or post-doctoral training.
