Sixteen new investigator award (NIA) winners are receiving up to $10,000 in grants from the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP).1,2 The grants will be awarded in March with the goal of providing funding for independent research programs of early-career pharmacy faculty.1

According to the AACP, the NIA grants are intended to be the first extramural research funding received by a faculty member as a principal investigator. The goal of the ACCP is to provide a foundation for future scholarly endeavors and continued extramural funding success with these grants.1

In addition to the research grants, each NIA winner will receive a $1000 travel award from the AACP to go toward presenting findings at the organization’s annual meeting. This year’s meeting will be held from July 18 to July 22, 2020, in Long Beach, California.1
