Medical Toxicology Foundation Innovative Research, Teaching, & Practice Grants

Amount: $20,000 each
Number of Grants Available: 2
Funding Duration: 1 year
Next Application Deadline: March 1, 2023

The Medical Toxicology Foundation funds innovative projects that support the Foundation’s mission to advance research and education in the prevention and treatment of patients adversely impacted by drugs, chemicals, and natural toxins.

The scope of this award is intended to be broad and creative. Proposals may be clinical or nonclinical in nature, but must have relevance to the practice of medical toxicology. All proposals that support the mission of the Foundation will be considered. We welcome grants with either a research or an innovative teaching focus.

Either the principal (i.e. “lead”) or senior investigator must be an active ACMT member in good standing, but ACMT membership is not required of co-investigators. Consultation with, and involvement of, professionals from other disciplines is encouraged. Applications are welcome from trainees (e.g. students, residents, fellows) and those within 5 years of completing fellowship, but the proposed work must be done under the supervision of an established investigator.

The 2023 submission guidelines will be available Fall 2022.
