About the Focused Projects Award for Junior Investigators
The Focused Projects Award for Junior Investigators is an AASM Foundation career development award which supports the career development of early career investigators who are committed to focusing their research in basic, translational, clinical or population sleep and circadian science. The Focused Projects Award for Junior Investigators provides seed funding for mentored research projects to jumpstart an early career investigator’s research career and provide the necessary support and resources needed to establish a track record of funding, become competitive for larger grants and/or prepare for a larger study, and enhance their chances of establishing a successful career in sleep and circadian research.
