Mid-Career Transition Grants
The purpose of these grants is to promote the careers of mid-career independent investigators whose research relates to the field of solid organ transplantation (and/or immunology relating to solid organ transplant). The grants support the investigator’s transition to an R-series or equivalent grant.
Grants are typically awarded in the amount of $50,000 for one year. In addition, the grant provides an optional one-for-one matching between the AST and the applicant’s institution of $25,000 each to support a post-doctoral fellow’s salary. The number of grants we award per year is dependent on the amount of available funding.
The 2021 cycle for AST mid-career transition grants is:
• Submissions are accepted between March 1 and June 1
• Applicants are notified in October
• Research begins the next January
Only applications supporting research directly related to solid organ transplantation will be considered. Applications are accepted in basic, clinical, and translational research.
