ABTA Research Award Applications

For Basic Research Fellowships and Translational Research Grants

Research Award Applications The American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) is now accepting applications for Basic Research Fellowships and Translational Research Grants to begin July 1, 2009, for studies to be conducted in the United States or Canada. We are seeking outstanding young researchers conducting quality brain tumor research. All such proposals will be given serious consideration, including pediatric brain tumor research. Additionally, we are interested in receiving innovative research proposals – those that incorporate novel or original concepts that have the potential to make a difference.
Basic Research Fellowships are $80,000 payable over a two-year period. The Fellowships provide salary support to post-doctorates who have demonstrated the potential to do basic brain tumor research. MDs will be within two years of completing a residency or will be within five years of post-residency training. PhDs will have no more than five years postdoctoral laboratory experience. Translational Grants are one-year $75,000 awards.
This is pre-clinical research beyond the molecular level. Human studies are excluded. Eligible candidates are MDs who have no more than five years of post-residency training and have attained Junior Faculty to Assistant Professor status. PhDs who will have no more than five years postdoctoral laboratory experience. Additional Information
