The Foundation for Anesthesia Education and Research (FAER) provides anesthesiology research grants funding basic science, clinical, translational, health research services and education research. In 2014, 16 physician anesthesiologists representing 13 institutions received FAER grants.
The award funding exceeded $2.5 million, which is the highest amount FAER has ever awarded, breaking the record amounts of $2.412 million given in 2007 and $2.4 million in 2103.
FAER grants are made possible through the generous financial support of ASA and its component and subspecialty societies, as well as anesthesiology departments, practice groups, corporations and individual contributors.
The Mentored Research Training Grant – Basic Science (MRTG-BS), or Clinical or Translational (MRTG-CT), is a two-year $175,000 grant for faculty members who have completed their anesthesiology residency within the past 10 years. The MRTG aims to develop the skills and preliminary data physician anesthesiologists need to become independent investigators.
