MTF Research and Education Funding

MTF Innovative Research and Teaching Awards

The MTF has allocated $20,000 to support either innovative research or teaching. Requests for support of direct costs can be between $5,000 and $20,000. Applicants may request a project period of up to two years. 

MTF Innovative Research Award

Supports highly innovative research that could ultimately lead to critical discoveries or major advancements that accelerate the field of medical toxicology research. The Innovative Research Award promotes new ideas; therefore, proposals need not include preliminary data. However, a solid rationale for the work must be provided.  Proposed work should have a high probability of success within the funding period. This program aims to provide seed funding that should lead to successful competition for additional funding beyond the pilot period. Results are to be presented at the ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting.

MTF Innovative Teaching Award

Supports the development of novel tools to provide education on relevant issues in medical toxicology, specifically, pioneering or progressive educational activities, methodologies, and/or curricula. Contemplated programs are not limited by format – the focus is on innovation in concept, technique, and/or technology. Prioritization will be given to practical end-products or educational activities that focus on the prevention, diagnosis, or treatment of human poisoning. The intended audience is medical professionals and/or the public. The awardee is expected to present results at the annual ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting.

MTF Award on Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention

Supports outstanding research and initiatives that have the greatest potential to reduce the misuse and abuse of prescription drugs, particularly among young people. A major goal is to support the development and/or analysis of innovative prevention, treatment, and/or harm reduction strategies. Requests for support of direct costs can be up to $5,000. Awardees will be notified at the ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting. Applicants may request a project period of up to two years. The awardee is expected to present results at a subsequent annual ACMT Annual Scientific Meeting.

MTF Practice Award

Clinically-based practices in Medical Toxicology are becoming more common as our subspecialty matures. To assist in promoting such services, the Medical Toxicology Foundation is offering $5,000 to fund research evaluating the potential economic and clinical benefits of medical toxicology services. The objective of a study funded by this award should be to measure the impact on patient care from the provision of medical toxicology services in either the inpatient or outpatient setting. Request for support of direct costs can be up to $5,000.
