The goal of these mentored awards is to invest in promising early career researchers and assist with their transition into independence as junior investigators. The SRSF expects to fund up to four awards and each award will be funded up to $50,000 for one year of support. Recipients are expected to apply for a mentored or independent federal research award within the funding period. A second year of funding is not available in this award cycle.
Scope of Research Supported
The awards are intended to further our understanding of sleep, circadian rhythms and sleep/circadian rhythm disorders. Submitted proposals will need to be considered cutting edge sleep/circadian research.
Up to four awards will be chosen under the broad topic of sleep/circadian research.
