Career Development Grants
This grant 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. The grant supports mentored projects that address one or more important unanswered scientific questions related to sleep and circadian science, sleep disorders and/or sleep health.
This grant 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. The funding provides support during the period of time needed for revision and resubmission of a promising application in response to reviewer critiques.
This grant helps independent investigators stay in the field of sleep and circadian research by providing bridge funding while re-applying for research support. The funding provides support during the period of time needed for reapplying for external research funding.
This grant 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. The grant supports mentored projects that address one or more important unanswered scientific questions related to sleep and circadian science, sleep disorders and/or sleep health.
This grant provides seed funding for mentored research projects in an effort to jumpstart an early career investigator’s research career. The grant supports mentored projects that address one or more important unanswered scientific questions related to sleep, sleep disorders and/or sleep health.
This grant 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. This grant supports projects that are responsive to focused topic areas of interest identified by the AASM Foundation.
Research Supplemental Grants
This grant provides additional funds to AASM Foundation grant recipients who have encountered challenges with making progress on AASM Foundation-funded research projects due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This grant provides additional funds to current AASM Foundation research grant investigators to support mentored sleep and circadian research training of promising students, post-doctoral fellows and clinical fellows who are members of minority groups traditionally underrepresented in US science to participate in AASM Foundation-funded research projects.
Collaborative Research Grants
The AASM Foundation has partnered with the CHEST Foundation to jointly fund a research grant in sleep medicine. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine Foundation and CHEST Foundation Research Grant in Sleep Medicine is being administered by the CHEST Foundation and focused on topics that advance sleep medicine and ultimately improve patient outcomes. Projects must also demonstrate how it will have a positive impact on the lung and/or sleep health of a community.
