The National Blood Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the American Association of Blood Banks. NBF will award grants for investigator-initiated original research in all aspects of blood banking, transfusion medicine, cellular therapies, and patient blood management. Awards will not be made to increase the funding available for currently funded research projects. NBF grants are intended to provide seed funding that allows the principal investigator to enhance preliminary data. This data may then be useful in applying for larger grants. An application fee of $160 must accompany the application. The NBF accepts national and international early-career applicants, identified as investigators who have completed a terminal research degree or medical residency – whichever date is later- within the past 10 years and has not been awarded a substantial research grant (i.e. NIH R01). Clinical fellowship training in a medical specialty or subspecialty training in the years that follow the internship/residency period is not considered a part of the residency. Often the clinical fellowship period will consist of a mixture of clinical and research training. The time spent in research training will be considered as applicable toward the 10 years of research and research training. Applications for research into innovative and new projects area priority.

To be eligible, an applicant must be a doctor (MD or PhD), medical technologist, or transfusion medicine or cellular therapies professional. All applicants will be considered regardless of age, race, gender, national origin, or religion.
