American Pain Society Seeks Applications for 2014 Future Leaders in Pain Research Grants

The American Pain Society’s The Future Leaders in Pain Research grant program was established in 2005 to fund pain research projects of doctoral-prepared investigators who have not yet attained NIH RO1 level funding. The purpose of the program is to encourage research in pain that will add to the existing body of knowledge and to allow investigators to develop pilot data that will aid them in securing additional grant funding for continued pain research.

Deadline: July 11, 2014

Alliance for Lupus Research Accepting Letters of Intent for Research Projects

Grants of up to $600,000 over three years will be awarded for research that accelerates the development of new treatments for lupus.
