EHA Research Grants
Applications are now closed
EHA Research Grants support talented junior researchers in advancing their career, e.g. towards becoming the leader of a research group.
If you have ambition for advancing your career and you have the support of your department and institute, welcome to the homepage for EHA Research Grants!
Please note that the EHA Research Grants are intended for basic and translational lab-based research in hematology. Purely clinical research projects will not be eligible, nor projects in health economics or other non-lab-based research. An exception can be the translational part of a clinical trial, although it must be relevant and novel.
Applicants may be of any nationality, but the home or host institute must be an academic research center or proven equivalent, and one of them must be in located in Europe.
At the time of application, the applicant should be a member of EHA or EHA Guest.

Physician Scientist Research Grant: €80.000, - per year, for 2 years
For physician scientists who are involved in patient care and:

- Must have at least 50% protected time for performing the research project, to be justified in the letter of support by the Head of Department where the research will be performed.
- It is highly preferred that the topic of research is related to the specialty in the clinic. (e.g. LAB: developing a mouse model in MPN, CLINIC: treating MPN)
IMPORTANT! If your project is in immunotherapy or in hemoglobinopathies, be sure to select the Topic-in-Focus version of your category! EHA has earmarked a grant for each Topic-in-Focus, which are Hemoglobinopathies, with a focus on Sickle Cell Disease, and Immunotherapy, with a focus on CAR-T, on top of the other grants.
