FRANKLIN, Tenn., Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Since 2014, the Scientific Advisory Board of Vivere (SAB) has awarded more than $100,000 in grants to 23 fellows practicing in the field of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) at some of the nation's leading universities. The SAB of Vivere is pleased to announce the availability of another $45,000 in research and travel grants to support continuing education for REI fellows.
Three research grants of $10,000 each are available for REI fellows whose work reflects the mission and goals of the SAB of Vivere to bring young people to thought leaders by support of residents/fellows in scientific research and knowledge.
Fellows who will be presenting (oral or poster presentations) at this year's 2016 American Society of Reproductive Medicine annual meeting in Salt Lake City, Utah, are also eligible to apply for one of 10 $1,500 grants. The grants were designed to help with the cost of registration, travel arrangements and hotel accommodations at the conference. Special consideration will be given to grant applicants that contain business or economic models to improve REI business practices.
"I am so grateful to Vivere's Scientific Advisory Board of Vivere for awarding me a fellowship research grant," said Molly Quinn, M.D., University of California, San Francisco, who received a grant last year. "With this funding, I was able to initiate a research project investigating the association between Bisphenol A levels and ovarian aging. I am honored to be presenting preliminary findings at the ASRM annual meeting this fall."
Jennifer F. Knudtson, M.D., University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, agreed that the SAB of Vivere grant she received last year granted her a unique opportunity to pursue her research goals. "From this research experience, I was able to further my career through presentations, publications and increased my research support. Thank you SAB of Vivere!" she said.
