We are now accepting applications for 2019. All pre-applications and student applications are due December 21, 2018.
The American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS) supports research projects designed to foster the development and use of lasers and other related technologies in medical and surgical applications. While the best research projects will be given priority for funding, a concerted effort will be made to award a balance of basic science and clinical research. Learn more about the ASLMS Research Fund and its contributors.
WHAT TYPES OF RESEARCH PROJECTS RECEIVE GRANTS?
The primary purpose of the ASLMS Research Grant Program is to conduct research which can be applied to medical and surgical care of patients. Preference will be given to proposed research projects which have a direct implication for medical or surgical applications. While the best research projects will be given priority, a concerted effort will be made to award a balance of basic science and clinical research. Learn more about past research grants awarded.
WHICH GRANT SHOULD I APPLY FOR?
Standard Research Grant
To be eligible, applicants must presently be enrolled in or have completed post-doctoral and/or residency training after January 1, 2012. All non-ASLMS members will be required to apply for and be accepted into ASLMS membership.
Student Research Grant
For ASLMS Student Research Grant application purposes, a Student is defined as an undergraduate student, graduate student (including residents and fellows) or any individual who is employed by an organization in a capacity or classification due primarily to their student status. Students cannot serve as the principal investigator for non-student research proposals.
2019 RESEARCH GRANT APPLICATION DEADLINE IS DECEMBER 21, 2018
Research Grants are announced at the ASLMS Annual Conference. Please note that the 2019 Conference is several weeks earlier this year, therefore the research grant application deadline is also earlier.
No grant will be awarded to any person if the award would be contrary to any United States law, including but not limited to trade embargoes or sanctions administered by the U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control.
