Program Description:Early-stage investigators often struggle to attain seed funding to gain the necessary data for larger research grants that will support an independent research career. This type of early-stage funding can profoundly impact the career trajectory of someone starting out in transfusion medicine. This program aims to provide information about AABB’s National Blood Foundation (NBF) and its initiative to support early-stage investigators at a critical time in their careers. Hear from the 2020 Scientific Research Grants Review Committee Chair to learn about the early-career grant program and important dates for applying in the 2020 grant cycle. A prior NBF grant recipient, who also serves on the application review panel, will describe the scoring system used and provide key insights into what grant reviewers look for in the applications. Program participants will also gain some perspective on how to develop a strong grant application. Finally, a recent NBF grant recipient will describe the resubmission process and value gained by experiencing the educational component to NBF’s early-career grant program and reviewer critiques. For the 2020 grant cycle, the NBF will accept grant applications from July 1 – December 1, 2019. Eligible AABB members can submit grant applications without a fee. For participating in this eCast, non-AABB members will receive a promo code for 25% off the 2020 grant application fee. This promocode will be provided via email to participants by July 1.
