Scientific Research Grant Scholar Recipients

Established in 1985, the AABB Foundation Scholar recognition highlights the research progress since being awarded AABB Foundation early-career grant funding. An early-career Scientific Research Grant recipient is recognized as an AABB Foundation Scholar after completing their grant term and providing a written report of their research. AABB Foundation Scientific Research Grant Scholars are recognized during the AABB Annual Meeting.

On average, our Scholars publish 20 peer-reviewed articles within 3 years of completing their grant and often score in the top 10th percentile for NIH R01 funding. These next-generation leaders in the field are responsible for medical breakthroughs in blood and biotherapies.

2022 AABB Foundation Scientific Research Grant Scholar Recipients

Benjamin Samelson-Jones, MD, PhDBenjamin Samelson-Jones, MD, PhD

“The prestige and funding associated with the NBF support allowed me to continue my scientific training, which subsequently allowed me to compete successfully for National Institution of Health (NIH) funding.”

Grant Year: 2017

Project: Novel Therapeutics for Hemophilia B: A Rational Pursuit of Bioengineered Factor IX Variants with Enhanced Clotting Activity

Project Led To: A novel bioengineering strategy that can efficiently generate new hyperactive factor IX variants with translational potential to enhance gene and protein therapy for hemophilia B and may provide a platform to address other rare blood disorders.

Vijay Bhoj, MD, PhDVijay Bhoj, MD, PhD

“Apart from contributing to my grant writing experience and general confidence, it enabled my lab to conduct a related pre-clinical study (not part of the original NBF proposal) that formed the basis of a recent NIH award that we were awarded to conduct an analogous clinical trial in patients. I played a lead role as a co-PI in putting this grant together and now continue my lead role, on this 7-year study (~$14M U award).”

Grant Year: 2018

Project: Dissecting the Humoral Response to FVIII for Therapeutic Applications

Project Led To: A deeper understanding of CAR T therapies in cancer patients that set the stage for purposeful development of such therapies for antibody-mediated diseases and later developed a potential CAR T cell therapy for autoimmune pemphigus vulgaris leading to a currently enrolling clinical trial.

Robert Nickel, MD, MScRobert Nickel, MD, MSc

“This experience was invaluable, especially early in my career, and has provided me with both an expanded knowledge and confidence base to design and execute future clinical studies. Already I am currently co-leading another clinical trial (NCT03587272) investigating nonmyeloablative transplant for sickle cell disease.”

Grant Year: 2018

Project: Hydroxyurea and Transfusion (HAT): Pilot Study of Combination Therapy for Patients with Sickle Cell Anemia

Project Led To: A clinical trial that systematically investigated, for the first time, the benefits of adding hydroxyurea to chronic transfusion therapy for patients with sickle cell anemia, a combination therapy addressing an important problem that has become even more evident during the COVID-19 pandemic- blood shortages.

Francesca Vinchi, PhDFrancesca Vinchi, PhD

“The results obtained from my NBF-funded study has set the ground for a major application to NIH funding within this exciting area of investigation, which was awarded in July 2020 in the context of a NHLBI-funded P01. This NIH award is currently funding further research progress on this topic in my laboratory and additional papers are in preparation for publication.”

Grant Year: 2019

Project: Role of heme-activated macrophages in Acute Chest Syndrome

Project Led To: An NHLBI-funded P01 and helped secure funding at the beginning of my independent research career. This NBF-funded project represented an important milestone for my laboratory and myself as Junior PI at the New York Blood Center.
