Three Proof of Concept awards will be offered in 2014. These grants will support new research projects that are in the early exploratory and developmental stages and have the potential to lead to advances in the scientific understanding of PH. Proposed projects should result in preliminary data that will enable the investigator to apply for support for a larger, hypotheses-driven research project.

Applicants may request up to $40,000 in direct costs for one year to be used for salaries and/or supplies to conduct this research. Investigators based in the U.S. and abroad are encouraged to apply. PHA has contracted with the ATS Foundation for administrative services for this program.

Target audience

Investigators who are interested in pulmonary hypertension research.
