This award encourages projects that will identify, evaluate and/or validate biomarkers to support insomnia (disorder) differential diagnosis and clinical treatment response. The award provides seed funding for mentored research projects in an effort to jumpstart an early career investigator’s research career. The AASM Foundation Focused Projects Award for Junior Investigators: Insomnia Biomarkers is supported by Eisai, Inc.
This award encourages the use of the National Sleep Research Resource (NIH/NHLBI Grant Number HL114473). Physicians 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 who are within 10 years of completing their post-doctoral training or who are current post-doctoral fellows.
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.
