This award supports early career physician scientists with faculty appointments who are committed to academic careers and focusing their research in basic, translational, clinical or population sleep and circadian science by providing funding for mentored research projects.
This award assists investigators at a critical juncture in their career where bridge funding can determine whether a promising sleep and circadian scientist stays in the sleep field or moves to a different career track.
This award helps independent investigators stay in the field of sleep and circadian research by providing bridge funding while re-applying for research support.
This award supports early career sleep medicine physicians who are committed to pursuing a research career in basic, translational, clinical or population sleep and circadian science by providing a protected research training experience for a mentored research project upon completion of their clinical training.
Physicians (MD or DO) who are board-eligible or board-certified in sleep medicine and have completed their sleep medicine fellowship within the past 10 years, are eligible to apply, as are researchers (PhD or other doctoral degree) who are within 10 years of completing their post-doctoral training or who are current post-doctoral fellows.
This award supports investigator-initiated, high-impact research projects aimed at addressing gaps in knowledge that impact the ability to provide optimal, patient-centered, cost-effective diagnosis and care for patients with sleep disorders. Individuals who possess a master’s level degree or higher are eligible to apply.
