AA&MDSIF Grant Opportunities

research grantsAA&MDSIF is pleased to help researchers advance the understanding and treatment of aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH).

Over the last 24 years, AA&MDSIF has awarded nearly $3 million in research grants thanks to gifts from patients, families, and friends.  These grants have helped advance the understanding and treatment of aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS), and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), leading to the development of new therapeutic approaches to treat these diseases. 

Each year the AA&MDSIF invites researchers to apply for two-year grants of $30,000 per year to test new ideas and to explore other research leads. The applications are ranked according to merit by a distinguished panel of research scientists and funded by the generosity of families and patients.

Established investigators and new investigators in bone marrow disease can apply for the awards. Second-year funding is contingent upon progress in the first year.

The guidelines and online application for the 2014 AA&MDSIF Research Grant Program are now available. The deadline for grant submissions is Friday, February 28, 2014.

For specific questions, please contact Alice Houk, Director of Health Professional Programs by phone at (301) 279-7202 or by email.
