The first round of ASH's one-year, $100,000 bridge grants awarded today will allow 17 basic, clinical, and translational hematology researchers whose NIH R01 series grant applications were deemed excellent by NIH peer review but not funded due to budget cutbacks to continue their critical research on blood diseases. The Society will award at least 30 bridge grants each year over the next three years to help support recipients as they work to secure funding to allow their critical research to move forward.Research supported by ASH's inaugural round of bridge grants spans the breadth of hematology. Funded projects range from exploring a gene signaling pathway that will allow researchers to better understand chemotherapy resistance in children with acute myeloid leukemia to exploring how red blood cells respond to oxidative stress. Other projects to receive ASH bridge grant funding include studies that seek to gain additional insight into the behavior of gene signaling in lymphoma, the role of a critical marker of blood-forming stem cells, and how proteins when modified induce dangerous arterial blood clots which are a leading cause of acute coronary syndrome and cardiovascular death.
