The 2021 Focused Projects Grant for Junior Investigators: Insomnia Biomarkers is no longer accepting applications. Please check back for additional details or subscribe to the mailing list to receive updates on AASM Foundation programs.
The AASM Foundation is committed to developing the careers of sleep and circadian investigators by increasing support for sleep researchers. To meet this goal, the AASM Foundation established research career development grants (CDG) to assist sleep researchers at various stages of their career.
The Focused Projects Grant for Junior Investigators 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 Grant for Junior Investigators provides seed funding for mentored research projects in an effort 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 an early career investigator’s chances of establishing a successful career in sleep and circadian research.
The Focused Projects Grant for Junior Investigators: Insomnia Biomarkers is open for projects that will identify, evaluate and/or validate biomarkers to support insomnia (disorder) differential diagnosis and clinical treatment response. Proposed mentored research projects must address this topic.
