Medical Toxicology Foundation Research and Teaching Awards

The Medical Toxicology Foundation anticipates awarding up to $20,000 in 2015 to fund innovative projects that support the Foundation’s mission of an enriched understanding, enhanced patient care, and improved dissemination of knowledge regarding toxic exposures.

The scope of the MTF Awards is intended to be broad and creative: All proposals that support the mission of the Foundation will be considered. Current research and education priorities of the Foundation include:

  • Support early-career investigators (fellows and young faculty <10 years post-fellowship training) with research projects that advance toxicological knowledge and improve patient care while providing preliminary data to support further grant applications (such as an NIH K-level award).
  • Support development of innovative approaches to delivery of medical toxicology education to healthcare providers and lay public.

Applicants can request monies in any amount from $5,000-$20,000 to support projects of 1-2 years duration, but they should keep in mind that the intent of the Foundation is to fund as many quality applications as fiscally possible. However, a single, outstanding application could be awarded the entire $20,000.
