Detall de la convocatòria


Objectiu de la convocatòria
EHA Research Grants support talented junior researchers in advancing their career, e.g. towards becoming the leader of a research group. The grants are intended for basic and translational lab-based research in hematology.
Característiques principals
There are three categories of EHA Research Grants:
  • Junior Research Grant: €50,000 per year for 3 years (total €150,000)
    For researchers doing basic research within 4 years of their PhD graduation. The month of graduation must be less than 4 years before the closing date of the application. Exceptions must be justified.
  • Advanced Research Grant: €80,000 per year for 2 years (total €160,000)
    For researchers doing basic research 4-8 years after their PhD graduation. This is the time interval between the month of graduation and the closing date of the application. Exceptions must be justified.
  • Physician Scientist Research Grant: €80,000 per year for 2 years (total €160,000)
    For physician scientists who are involved in patient care and:
    - Are MD or equivalent
    - Are within 4 years after PhD graduation OR MD graduation OR hematology training (or equivalent), whatever comes last at the closing date of the application. Exceptions must be justified.
    - Have a proven track record in research by publications
    - Must have at least 50% protected time for performing the research project, to be justified in the letter of support by the Head of Department where the research will be performed.
    - It is highly preferred that the topic of research is related to the specialty in the clinic. (e.g. LAB: developing a mouse model in MPN, CLINIC: treating MPN)

    Purely clinical research projects will not be eligible, nor projects in health economics or other non-lab-based research. An exception can be the translational part of a clinical trial, although it must be relevant and novel.
