The ACP Junior Faculty Investigator Grant Program will assist new investigators with a career interest in phlebology research in initiating a basic, pre-clinical, or pilot clinical research project of importance to the field of phlebology. This Program is expected to: 1) generate pilot data that enhances the recipient’s ability to independently obtain major grant funding for future phlebology research; and 2) enhance the recipient’s ability to independently design, conduct, and report phlebology research. The Program’s long-term goal is to promote the development of a future generation of phlebology research leaders.
Junior faculty investigators with an MD, DO, PhD, or equivalent degree from an accredited educational institution are eligible. Non-ACP members will be considered, but ACP members will be given preference. Applicants must not have been recipients of major grant support (exceeding $50,000). Established investigators at the Associate Professor or Full Professor level are not eligible. To ensure balance, independence, objectivity, and ethical rigor in its funded research activities, a full disclosure of any professional business dealings and/or interests in for-profit commercial entities (medical device or pharmaceutical companies, as well as private practices), is required by all applicants. This disclosure will not preclude eligibility of an applicant, rather it will be weighed in the grant approval process.
This grant provides $70,000 for one year. Funds may be used for Investigator salary support, salaries of research assistants working on the project, supplies, service function charges, travel expenses for 1-2 related conferences, and completion of a research education program. Consulting expenses, institutional indirect costs, and office expenses will not be funded. Investigators must spend at least 40% of their time on the project.
