Steven Grover, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow in the Division of Hematology and the UNC Blood Research Center has been selected to receive a Fellow to Faculty Scholar Award from the American Society of Hematology (ASH).
The prestigious ASH Scholar Awards provide financial support to fellows and junior faculty with dedicated careers in hematology research, as they transition from training programs to careers as independent investigators. Grover will receive a $125,000 award to support his research into the anticoagulant function of C1 esterase inhibitor in venous thrombosis.
The ASH Scholar Awards are made possible through support from the ASH Foundation as well as from the corporate community, individual donors, and funds committed by the Society. The program funds hematologists in the United States and Canada who conduct basic, translational, and clinical research that furthers the understanding and treatment of blood disorders.
“For researchers, Scholar Awards not only provide vital financial support, but also instill confidence that ASH recognizes their potential to make discoveries of importance to the field,” said 2022 ASH President Jane N. Winter of the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. “For more than 35 years now, ASH has supported fellows and early career faculty who have gone on to become leaders in hematology. We congratulate this year’s recipients and look forward to following the progress of their promising research careers.”
The American Society of Hematology is the world’s largest professional society of hematologists dedicated to furthering the understanding, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders affecting the blood.
