The deadline for the SVS Foundation Clinical Research Seed Grant has been extended to Monday, March 8.
The award, which provides researchers with $25,000 to cover direct costs for one year, seeks to recognize the importance of clinical investigation in vascular disease.
To qualify for the grant, principal investigators must be Active SVS members who are within the first 10 years of practice, or otherwise a fellowship- or integrated residency-trained, board-eligible, vascular surgeon within the first 10 years of practice who is in a full-time faculty position and has an SVS Active member serving as mentor.
The SVS Foundation highlights the vital importance to both patients and the specialty of vascular surgeons playing prominent roles in both industry- and investigator-initiated clinical trials.
The Clinical Research Seed Grant program aims to encourage the interest and development of clinical investigators among the SVS membership, particularly junior members or those with limited prior experience as principal investigators. It also looks to provide direct support for pilot clinical projects that have the potential to develop into larger studies fundable by industry or governmental sources.
“The SVS Foundation is invested in a process that assures diversity, equity and inclusion for our award and scholarship opportunities,” the SVS said. “We encourage enthusiastic, eligible applicants from all aspects of gender, sexual orientation and ethnicity to apply.”
The Monday, March 8, deadline ends at 11:59pm (Central Time). Applications can be made here.
