American Society of Hematology Awards New Bridge Grants to Help Alleviate Pain of Federal Funding Cuts
Nov 17, 2014
The American Society of Hematology (ASH), the world’s largest professional society concerned with the causes and treatment of blood disorders, today announced the names of seven recipients of its Bridge Grant awards. These one-year, $150,000 awards provide critical interim support for hematology research proposals that, despite earning high scores, could not be funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) amid severe funding reductions. The ASH Bridge Grant award recipients announced today join 44 hematologists that have received funding since ASH committed $9 million in Society funds to create the program in July 2012.
