ABTA Accepting 2009 Research Award Applications

August 28, 2008 – The American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA) is now accepting applications for its 2009 research award program.

The annual program offers two-year, $80,000 Basic Research Fellowships,and one-year, $75,000 Translational Grants to young, exceptional brain tumor researchers in the U.S. and Canada.

The Basic Research Fellowships provide salary support to post-doctorate scientists conducting basic brain tumor research. Medical doctors within two years of completing a residency or within five years of post-residency training, and Ph.D. researchers with no more than five years post-doctoral laboratory experience, are eligible for a Basic Research Fellowship.

Translational Grants fund pre-clinical, non-human brain tumor research beyond the molecular level. Qualified candidates are M.D.s within five years of post-residency training who have attained junior faculty to assistant professor status, and Ph.D.s with three-to-five years of post-doctoral laboratory experience.

Last year, ABTA awarded $1.8 million to Basic Research Fellows, and $350,000 to Translational Grant recipients. Since 1997, ABTA has awarded more than $12 million to young brain tumor researchers.

The 2009 ABTA Research Award applications, and additional information on the program, are available at www.abta.org/index.cfm?contentid=38.The deadline for completed applications, including all attachments, is Jan. 7, 2009.
