The American Sleep Medicine Foundation (ASMF) is committed to supporting the education and training of sleep scientists and is pleased to offer its fifth year of grant funding for the Physician Scientist Training Award (PSTA). Through this award, the ASMF supports research training for physicians who are pursuing careers as physician scientists in sleep medicine. For the third year the ASMF also is requesting applications for the ABSM Junior Faculty Research Award, which was established with a $2 million endowment from the American Board of Sleep Medicine (ABSM). This award provides funding for new faculty in the development of a career in academic sleep medicine.
