Letters of Intent submission deadlines for PHA Research Program grant opportunities are approaching!

Letters of Intent submission deadlines for PHA Research Program grant opportunities are approaching! The Robyn Barst Pediatric PH Research and Mentoring Fund, the first grant established to support pediatric research in PH, will accept Letters of Intent until through May 10, 2013 U.S.-based clinicians holding an MD, DO, or equivalent degree are encouraged to apply for up to three awards of $25,000.


While two awards will be drawn from the million dollar endowment raised by the fund, an additional grant has been made possible due to a generous donation by PH caregiver, Ms. Betty Lou Wojciechowski. The Matthew and Michael Wojciechowski PH Pediatric Proof of Concept Grant will operate under Barst Fund criteria and rules of eligibility. The donation was made in honor of her two late sons, Matthew and Michael, who lost their battle to PH.

Additional PHA Research Program grant opportunities, the PHA Proof of Concept Grants and the PHA/ATS Research Fellowship Grants, will also be accepting letters of intent until May 10, 2013. Eligibility and application instructions for both programs can be found on the pages linked above.

Please spread the word about these innovative research opportunities to help bring us closer to a cure!
