Depends on AST Research Network budget allowances.

Fellowship Research Grant applications are submitted in one of three categories: basic, clinical, or translational science. The AST Research Network strives to support a Fellowship Research Grant in each category, provided funds are available.

  • Basic Science is defined as anything in discovery science from molecules to cells to animal models.
  • Translational Science is defined as anything from animal models designed specifically to translate basic research to clinical application, to work with clinical human samples with clear translational impact.
  • Clinical Science is defined as research involving human patients, from data mining to testing new protocols and therapies. Clinical science includes the following two types of research:

o Clinical Trials: designed to answer specific question(s) about new therapies or new ways of using known treatments. Preference will be given to prospective studies. 

o Clinical Outcomes or Observational Studies: designed to better define the causes and/or consequences of pathological or biological processes in transplantation. Retrospective studies may be appropriate. However, proposals that analyze registry data (e.g. data collected by the United Network for Organ Sharing) are expected to test unique hypotheses or employ new data or methodologies. The analysis, including the statistics, should be performed by the applicant and not by the data registry staff.
