Subject:Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation

 Deadline: February 29, 2008

 The Aplastic Anemia & MDS International Foundation, Inc.
 ( ) has announced the availability of
 two-year research grants for researchers dedicated to the study
 of bone marrow failure who seek to advance the understanding
 and treatment of aplastic anemia, myelodysplastic syndromes,
 and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria. Research should lead 
 to new insights into the causes of bone marrow failure and/or
 to the development of new therapeutic approaches.
 To be eligible, an applicant must hold a doctor of medicine,
 doctor of philosophy, doctor of science, or other doctoral-
 level degree. There are no nationality restrictions. Research
 may be carried out in the United States or abroad but not at
 a for-profit laboratory in the private sector.
 Grants can be awarded to new investigators or established
 investigators. New investigators are postdoctoral fellows,
 instructors, and those who have been assistant professors for
 fewer than five years. Established investigators have been
 assistant professors for five years or more or are associate
 or full professors.

 Applications are judged on the scientific quality of the
 research plan, the relevance of the proposed research to
 the foundation's goals, the applicant's qualifications, and
 the adequacy of the research institution and facility where
 the research will be conducted. In the case of research related
 to PNH, at least some funding is restricted to funding grants
 for medical research that help promote scientific advancements
 in the following areas: understanding and preventing blood
 clotting/thrombosis in PNH; improving symptom management and
 the quality of life for PNH patient; discovering new treatments
 for PNH; and finding a cure for PNH.
 The grants provide $30,000 a year for two years.
 Complete program guidelines and application instructions are
 available at the AA&MDSIF Web site.
