Grant provides support for projects representing the investigator’s specific interest and competencies. The project must be original research relevant to the field of family planning and abortion.
Grant provides start-up or supplemental funds to support the initial phase of a project, including solidifying collaborations, identifying research questions, negotiating roles and responsibilities, detailing the research plan and methods, and collecting pilot data.
Grant supports faculty-level scientists near the beginning of their investigative career by providing protected time for an intensive, supervised career development experience in the biomedical, behavioral, clinical or social sciences leading to research independence. The award is intended to support abortion-focused research.
Grant provides mid-career investigators with protected time to conduct research and mentor.
Grant provides medical students, graduate-level students and residents support for hands-on experience in family planning research.
