Faculty Grants

The goal of the AST Faculty Development Grants is to promote the careers of young independent investigators within the first 5 years of their first faculty appointment, by providing funds allowing them to expand on preliminary research findings that will become the basis for individual research or career development awards from the NIH, VA or equivalent agencies.

The AST Faculty Grant applications are submitted in one of three primary categories:

Basic Science Grant

This is a one- or two-year $50,000/year grant for Junior Faculty. The goal of the AST Basic Science Faculty Development Grant is to promote the careers of young independent investigators within the first five years of their first faculty appointment (see Section C: Eligibility Criteria), by providing funds allowing them to expand on preliminary research findings that will become the basis for individual research or career development awards from the NIH, VA, or equivalent agencies.

The AST Basic Science Faculty Development Grant is intended to support work in transplantation biology broadly ranging from pertinent basic immunology to animal studies. All types of organ, tissue, and cell transplants will be considered. The project should provide a strong training vehicle for the applicant, in keeping with the overall mission of the AST Faculty Grants.

Translational Science Grant

The AST Translational Science Faculty Development Grants are intended to support projects involving human tissue or other biologic material for in vitro examination to address a clinical issue related to transplantation. In general, these studies should link the in vitro results to other data or outcomes from the same patients to be considered a translational research faculty proposal.

Applications must be submitted by Monday, September 15, 2014. The funding of any grant and total number of grants awarded by the AST is dependent on budgetary constraints in a given year.

This is a one- or two-year $50,000/year grant for Junior Faculty. The goal of the AST Clinical Science Faculty Development Grant is to promote the careers of young independent investigators within the first five years of their first faculty appointment (see eligibility criteria), by providing funds allowing them to expand on preliminary research findings that will become the basis for individual research or career development awards from the NIH, VA, or equivalent agencies. Clinical Science Grants cover two main categories: Clinical Trials and Clinical Outcomes.
