New Investigator Grant-in-Aid (NIGIA)

(cancelled until further notice)



The Society has established a CSATVB New Investigator Grants-in-Aid ($10,000) in order to promote the research of new scientists in the area of atherosclerosis, thrombosis and vascular biology. This grant is to be considered as seed money to help awardee attract new funding for their research programs, e.g., from industry, research institutes, and university departments and faculties. Application forms are available on this site (see details at the bottom of this page). The selection of recipients will be made by a CSATVB committee made up of the Chair of the Grant Committee and two colleagues (appointed by the Education Committee), who will rank the applications.
