PATHWAYS for Grants:

Research Trainee Grant

Junior Faculty Investigator Grant

($70,000 for 12 months)
For junior faculty, typically at institutions of higher learning, with a career interest in phlebology research to initiate a basic, pre-clinical, or pilot clinical research project of importance to the field of phlebology. Associate professors and full professors are not eligible, and applicants must not have received major grant support exceeding $50,000.
