The AASM Foundation intends the ABSM Junior Faculty Grant to aid outstanding individuals with potential for a productive career as a physician scientist in academic sleep medicine, by providing them the skills, resources, and time needed to address highly significant sleep and circadian science research questions through mentored projects and lead to career advancement.
Applicants are expected to address the specific aims as described in the application. Major modification of the proposed aims requires AASM Foundation Board of Directors or Executive Committee approval.
During the project period, or shortly after project completion, the principal investigator should submit an abstract for presentation to the Associated Professional Sleep Societies (APSS) Annual Meeting. The AASM Foundation also anticipates that projects funded by this grant will lead to the publication of original research in peer-reviewed journals.
The expected results and deliverables should be clearly stated in the application. The applicant must submit progress and final reports during the project period, describing project activities and results, as outlined below. Failure to meet the deliverables or submit progress or final reports may result in termination of project funding.
