The application window for ASGCT's 2018 Career Development Grant program is now closed. The due date was August 1.

The American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) recently created 14 new grant opportunities to support members developing their careers. The Society will award up to $175,000 in Career Development Awards and up to $70,000 in Career Travel Awards.

The Career Development grants are mentored awards to support ASGCT members designing transformative pilot studies in gene and cell therapy as they prepare to transition to independence. ASGCT is particularly interested in funding ideas that would be challenging to fund with normal mechanisms. ASGCT is particularly interested in helping applicants generate preliminary data to use in larger proposals (NIH K awards, first-submission R-level funding, etc.).

ASGCT’s Career Travel grants are designed to support members traveling to gain technical expertise and to promote collaboration between groups as part of 4-8 week guest projects. These awards are intended to be broad in scope and can be used for collaborative projects between academic labs, academic labs and industry/non-profits, gene and cell therapy policy development opportunities with congressional leaders, NIH/NSF, FDA, patient advocacy groups, and more. These guidelines were developed with the understanding that groundbreaking research often happens when different fields, technologies, and knowledge bases come together to work towards a common goal.
