2015 Research Grants

AA&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 $4 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. 

2015 Grant Application Portal Now Open

Create an account and submit your application for a 2015 research grant.

Application deadline is February 27, 2015.

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 2015 Research Grant Guidelines and online application are now available. 

Summer Fellowship Grants

The AA&MDSIF Summer Fellowship Program will offer medical students and graduate students, in the biological sciences, the opportunity to engage in research under the sponsorship and supervision of an established principal investigator who directs a laboratory dedicated, at least in part, to the investigation of bone marrow failure at a US academic, medical or research institution.
