The Sleep Research Society Foundation is pleased to offer the Elliot D. Weitzman, MD, Research Grant for the 2012-2013 grant cycle. Sleep Research Society members will be able to apply for SRSF grants through November 30.
The Sleep Research Society Foundation Elliot D. Weitzman, MD, Research Grant is intended to facilitate established researchers in developing novel and innovative lines of research that differ from their previous areas of research by assisting them in developing pilot data that will support applications for NIH or other federal grants. Weitzman grants will be awarded based on the evaluated scientific merit based on significance, innovation, approach, investigator and research environment, and on SRSF programmatic priorities. This criteria for the Weitzman grant makes it similar to a NIH R21 grant. The Weitzman Grant provides support of up to $20,000 over one year.
Elliot D. Weitzman, MD, established the nation's first-time isolation laboratory at Montefiore Medical Center at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York, where he chaired the Department of Neurology from 1971 to 1982. Dr. Weitzman conducted pioneering investigations of circadian rhythms and sleep disorders, including delayed sleep phase syndrome. His group developed chronotherapy to help people with delayed sleep phase syndrome reset their circadian clocks to more conventional hours. In 1975 he help found the Association of Sleep Disorder Centers, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine's forerunner.
