ATS Announces 2012 FundingInformation about 2012 funding from the ATS Foundation Research Program is now available on the Society’s Web site at www.thoracic.org/research. This year, the program will offer unrestricted grant support, specific partnership grants and fellowships for research in targeted disease areas, and awards for graduates of the ATS MECOR program.
Anyone interested in applying for grant or fellowship support must submit a letter of intent (LOI) by 9 a.m. (EST) on Thursday, March 15, 2012. After reviewing these letters, the ATS Scientific Advisory Committee will invite the investigators of the most highly ranked proposals to submit full research applications for scientific review in August 2012. The committee will then rank these applications and award grants according to scientific merit. Funding will begin in October 2012.
