The 2018 PSF Investigator-Initated Grants Cycle is now open!

Various grant opportunities are available
Two new research grants and two new scholarship opportunities are offered this year, in addition to a variety of other research grant opportunities.

Spear Research Fellowship Grant
The Spear Research Fellowship Grant was developed in memory of ASPS Past President and Georgetown University Hospital Department of Plastic Surgery Department Founding Chair, Scott Spear, MD and the Spear family's desire to nurture and grow the training and expertise of young academicians considering a career in breast reconstruction and patient care. Funding for this new program comes from the Allergan Foundation.

PSF Translational Research Grant
The goal of the new PSF Translational Research Grant is to accelerate the translation of scientific discoveries and technical developments into practical solutions that improve human health through innovation funding and to encourage collaborative, transdisciplinary work to accelerate the translation of medical discoveries into improved health.

These seed grants will be awarded in the areas of medical technology, therapeutics, diagnostics, population health sciences and community engagement.

PSF/MTF Allograft Tissue Research Grant
In addition to these new opportunities, The PSF has again partnered with the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation (MTF) to offer the PSF/MTF Allograft Tissue Research Grant, which provides research grants to investigators who study allograft tissue transplantation in plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Additional Research and Training Grants
The PSF continues to offer a variety of research and training grant opportunities. Grants range from those that provide salary support for residents and fellows, to grants intended for more experienced and accomplished researchers. There are many different grants focused on specialty areas such as hand surgery, peripheral nerve, maxillofacial surgery, or pediatric plastic surgery.
