Grant Description
Grants to USA and Canada researchers affiliated with qualified institutions for projects in the field of cardiopulmonary medicine. Funding is intended for clinical, translational, and basic science research to reach a better understanding of the disorders of pulmonary vascular biology, particularly pulmonary hypertension.

ATS Early Career Investigator Award in Pulmonary Vascular Disease is a program designed for basic science, translational and clinical research in the field of cardiopulmonary medicine. The ATS Early Career Investigator Award in Pulmonary Vascular Disease program provides opportunities for individual investigators to promote quality medical care and enhance patients' lives by supporting research (basic science, translational and clinical research) in the area of pulmonary hypertension (PH) related to expanding knowledge of the pathways involved in pulmonary vascular pathobiology and ultimately, to improve treatment for patients with pulmonary hypertension.

Applications will be considered for basic science, translation, or clinical research specifically targeting pulmonary vascular disease including, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Pathophysiology
  • Pharmacology
  • Treatment
  • Genetics
  • Diagnosis
  • Epidemiology

Additional Eligibility Criteria
Criteria for eligible applicants:
- Applicants must be a United States (US) citizen, a permanent US resident, a Canadian citizen, or permanent Canadian resident at time of Grant submission.
- Applicants must be engaged principally in basic science, translation and/or clinical research, with a proposal aimed at understanding the pathways and pathophysiology of pulmonary vascular disease.
- Applicants must have no more than 5 years of experience beyond his/her first faculty appointment at the start of the award (as of July 1st of the award year). [Prior appointments in a different area of research will require an explanation in the application, to avoid being counted as part of the “5 years of experience” criteria.]
- Applicants must have completed their primary research training (PhD or subspecialty fellowship training) by July 1st of award year. Applicants can be a junior faculty member (up to and including the rank of Assistant Professor), postdoctoral scholar, doctoral candidate or fellow (last year and finishing by July 1st of the award year).
- Applicants must have a firm commitment from their home institution for mentored career development. (The applicant’s mentor should be involved in overseeing the means for adequate funding to support necessary research, ensuring protected time for the applicant to complete his/her research and to investigate career development, and helping the applicant obtain a firm commitment from the applicant’s institution. This must be carefully addressed in the mentor's letter).
- Applicants may submit only one Early Career Investigator Award in Pulmonary Vascular research proposal per application round.

Applicants with nonimmigrant visas are not eligible to apply.

Applicants may not be an employee of a commercial entity (eg, pharmaceutical company).

Significant funding from any of the following grants or awards will disqualify the applicant: US: NIH-R01, NIH-P01 project, VA Merit Review Award, NSF, DOD or equivalent, NIH-K awards, AHA-SDG, NSA Career Development Award, VA Career Development Award or equivalent; Canada: CIHR (Project grant), Heart and Stroke Foundation Grant (National Award)
