The AABB Foundation serves the field of blood and biotherapies through grant making, educational offerings and industry leadership engagement and recognition. For 40 years, our early-career grant program has funded more than 200 investigators – many of whom are now subject matter experts and leaders in the field.

Early-Career Scientific Research Grants

These grants support early-career researchers and promote critical scientific research in the field. Upon completion of a Foundation-funded early-career grant, the principal investigator is required to submit a final report detailing the project outcomes and is recognized as an AABB Foundation Scholar.

  • Grant recipients whose original research resulted in an important contribution to the body of scientific knowledge may be acknowledged by the Foundation through the Award for Innovation Research, or by induction into the AABB Foundation Hall of Fame which recognizes lifetime achievement leaders.
  • The Foundation fosters critical, forward-thinking research discussions that can impact the field by annually convening our network of executives, senior leadership, researchers and regulators to engage in rich conversation designed to support future decisions.
