Basil O’Connor Starter Scholar Research Award 2012 Program
This award is designed to support young scientists just embarking on their independent research careers. The March of Dimes defines a birth defect as any abnormality of structure or function, whether inherited, or acquired in utero and presenting in infancy or early childhood. Deviations from reproductive health of women and men as an underlying basis of birth defects, i.e. preconceptional events, prenatal course, and premature births, are appropriate subjects for research support.
Grants are awarded to qualified institutions to support research on birth defects.
Basil O’Connor applicants may not be recipients of a major grant (grants exceeding $200,000 a year) at the time of the application.
These grants do not cover the recipient's salary, but do provide salary support for technical help. They may not exceed US$75,000 per year, and are awarded for two years.
