The HTRS Mentored Research Award (MRA) Program provides grants for qualified fellows or junior attending/junior faculty (MDs, DOs, MBBSs or the equivalent ) pursuing clinical, translational, or basic science research projects in hemostasis and/or thrombosis under the guidance of an experienced mentor. Since the program’s inception in 2007, HTRS has awarded nearly $8 million for 50 Mentored Research Awards.
The goals of the HTRS MRA Program are to:
- Increase the number of skilled physician-scientists in the U.S. medical workforce dedicated to long-term research careers in benign hematology
- Support innovative research by pairing talented young physician-scientists with experienced mentors, many of whom are recognized leaders in U.S. clinical and/or basic science research in hemostasis and thrombosis
- Provide trainees and junior faculty an accessible “on-ramp” into the NIH research pipeline by funding initial research programs that can spark and support K-award applications
