E.W. "Al" Thrasher Awards

Research grants for children's medical research. The purpose of the award is to improve children's health through medical research, with an emphasis on projects that have the potential to translate into clinically meaningful results within a few years.

The Thrasher Research Fund is open to applications that address a variety of significant pediatric problems. Both incidence and severity are considered when determining the significance of the proposed topic. Ideal applications for the E.W. 'Al' Thrasher Award address significant health problems that affect children in large numbers and offer the potential for practical solutions to these problems. Such solutions should be innovative and have the potential for broad applicability with low financial and/or technical barriers to implementation. Hypothesis-driven research is preferred over exploratory, hypothesis-generating research. Projects with a shorter distance to clinical applicability are given priority. The Fund is NOT currently accepting studies that will be primarily conducted in animal models.

Eligibility: Principle Investigators must be qualified in terms of education and experience to conduct research. A doctoral-level degree is required. There are no restrictions with regard to citizenship, and applications from institutions both inside & outside the United States are welcome.
