The AHSC-CDA award provides funding to support physicians, physician-scientists and health-scientists across disciplines to develop a research project in an established investigator’s laboratory/program to generate preliminary data for a future competitive grant application. The award allows promising UA health-scientists protected time to conduct clinical and translational research under the direction of a well-funded and highly productive UA research mentor.
The AHSC-CDA scholars will receive salary support of $75,000 per year for two years or funds to cover ~75% assigned effort of the current total base salary, plus fringe benefits. Up to $5,000 per year will be available to defray costs associated with the scholar’s research-related activities including lab supplies, tuition and fees for enrolling in courses of interest related to research. In addition, the AHSC-CDA will provide $1,500 per year for the scholar to travel to one or more academic conferences, and $5,000 per year to contribute toward the mentor’s research program.
