The Society for Pediatric Dermatology (SPD) announces a call for proposals to compete for research awards and grants supporting the field of pediatric dermatology.
The William Weston Research Award (funding up to $15,000) supports scholarly clinical or basic research. Proposals are evaluated on their importance to pediatric dermatology, their scientific merit and their likelihood of success. Preference is given to young investigators seeking to establish a research program and to members of the Society. One (1) Weston Research Award will be given in 2016 and be reviewed/selected by SPD's Awards and Grants Committee.
The Pilot Project Grants support the initiation of studies important to Pediatric Dermatology and are given in conjunction with the Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance (PeDRA), SPD's research arm. In 2016, there will be up to $85,000 available across two cycles to fund high quality studies - either single investigator or collective projects - by SPD/PeDRA members. Collaborative projects must meet the objectives of a disease-specific group. Pilot Project Grants are reviewed and selected by a joint SPD/PeDRA's Grant Review Committee and allocated directly by PeDRA as follows:
The application deadline for first cycle 2016 is May 1, 2016. Grant recipients will be notified in June 2016 and be officially recognized at the society's 42nd Annual Meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota, July 14-17, 2016. The application deadline for second cycle 2016 is December 7, 2016. Grant recipients will be notified in February 2017 and be officially recognized at the society's Pre-AAD Meeting in Orlando, Florida on March 2, 2017.
