HOPA Early-Career Research Grant
The HOPA Early-Career Research Grant (ECR) will provide funding to promising investigators early in their career to encourage and promote quality, basic, and pre-clinical translational lab-based research, although clinical research may also be considered, in hematology/oncology among HOPA members. The purpose of this award is to fund US-based pharmacists within their first 7 years post completion of formal training and have not yet attained R21 level funding. Awarded early career pharmacists will be required to work with a mentor either from their sponsoring institution or to find a mentor from another institution within the United States.
The HOPA Early Career Research Grant will award up to $50,000 to one or two chosen applicants, paid in one installment.
Sponsored Early-Career Research Grant
The Sponsored Early-Career Research Grant (ECR), supported by Acerta Pharma, a member of the AstraZeneca Group, will provide funding to promising investigators early in their career to encourage and promote quality, basic, and pre-clinical translational lab-based research, although clinical research may also be considered, in hematology/oncology among HOPA members. This Grant has been awarded, and the grant is closed.
Research Fund Award
The Research Fund Award is intended to support a hematology/oncology pharmacy practice research project with subsequent publication that aligns closely with the HOPA strategic plan to demonstrate the value of hematology/ oncology pharmacy practice. Pharmacy practice is broadly defined to include areas of research such as: clinical or patient outcomes, surveys, patient safety, standards validation, and basic/translational science applications. Multiple institutions may be involved in the project, and a project with co-PIs are allowed. A subsequent publication resulting from the research project is expected within a year of the study completion.
A total of $100,000 is available to be awarded to up to three grants through a competitive peer-review process described below. HOPA aims to fund at least one practice-based and one basic/translational study.
