Award Overview

The Medical Toxicology Foundation (MTF) endeavors to support Medical Toxicology research. The MTF/EMF Research Award is jointly sponsored by the Medical Toxicology Foundation and the Emergency Medicine Foundation (EMF).

The goals of the grant offering are: 1) to promote toxicology-related research; 2) to advance emergency toxicology care; and 3) to facilitate the academic growth and development of future researchers in emergency medicine and toxicology by investing in the future of the specialty of emergency medicine and its subboards.


This grant is available to any physician who will be enrolled as a resident or Medical Toxicology fellow in good standing in an ACGME approved Emergency Medicine residency, Medical Toxicology fellowship, or a fellow in any Emergency Medicine sub-specialty training programs for the proposed funding year. The applicant must have an appropriate Emergency Medicine or Medical Toxicology faculty supervisor. The research award is also open to young Medical Toxicology faculty, those with five years or less faculty career experience. Any part-time junior faculty experience (such as during sub-specialty fellowship training) does not count toward the five-year guideline.

Although not mandatory, proposals utilizing the ACMT Toxicology Investigators Consortium (ToxIC) Registry are particularly encouraged.
