AST – Transplantation and Imunology Research Network Grant Application – Deadline Nov. 1, 2017

The AST Transplantation and Immunology Research Network (TIRN) research grants program seeks to support fellows and junior faculty by funding innovative research in basic, clinical, and translational science.

The AST TIRN has identified research priorities as suggested focus areas for grant applicants in the 2018 research grant cycle. However, applications on any research topic are accepted, given the importance of innovation in areas outside of these priorities.

A limited number of grants are awarded each funding cycle, and the number and term (one or two years) of grants varies each funding cycle.

Visit TIRN.org/funding for complete details including eligibility criteria and funding guidelines.

Please direct any questions concerning TIRN to TIRN@myAST.org

**Application deadline: Wednesday, November 1, 2017 at 11:59 pm PST**
