Applications and Scholarships

Applications will open in January and applicants will be notified in April 2017.

Tuition, travel, housing and meal expenses will be paid by the society and corporate sponsors for up to 12 scholars to attend the course. Participants will be competitively selected. Preference will be given to fellows and faculty with no more than two years of BMT experience following training or a faculty appointment.

Objectives and Curriculum

The ASBMT Board of Directors created the course in 2006 because of concerns that clinical fellowship programs don’t adequately cover the principles of research and how to take findings from the laboratory to the clinic. The course helps close the gap by addressing those deficiencies. The course includes formal presentations and extensive follow-up dialogue and small-group discussion, covering topics such as:

  • Research subject eligibility and recruitment
  • Clinical trial design
  • Biostatistics
  • Data management and quality control
  • Study endpoints
  • Late effects and quality of life
  • Clinical pharmacology, including polypharmacy and drug interactions
  • Regulatory compliance
  • Relationships with pharmaceutical companies and third-party payers
  • Opportunities for grants and clinical research training
  • Grant writing
  • Working with a mentor
  • Translational trials
  • Working with laboratory investigators
  • Research ethics
  • Subject safety

Each participant will be expected to have a research project that can be developed in discussions with faculty and with peers.

Faculty

The 2016 course directors are Catherine M. Bollard, MD, of the Children's National Medical Center and Christopher N. Bredeson, MD, MSc, The Ottawa Hospital/University of Ottawa.
