Physician Scientist Seed Grants

Physician Scientist Seed Grants

The Albert Einstein Society is soliciting applications from Einstein Healthcare Network residents and fellows to be considered for AES Physician Scientist Seed Grant awards. This award provides fast track funding of up to $10,000 to enable residents and fellows to conduct basic science or clinical research. Funding is intended to defray the costs associated with basic science or clinical research such as consumable expenses, special equipment and software, and other expenditures associated with research. The grant will not fund overhead fees, computers (includes mobile devices) and accessories, Medicare cost analysis, travel expenses or transcription services.

Please be aware, proposals involving human subjects or animal research will need to be approved by Einstein’s IRB/IACUC committee within 90 days of AES funding.

What If I Get the Grant?
Funds will be released once you have submitted proof of IRB/IACUC approval. Provide the account number to your department administrator who will assist with purchase order or ledger transfer procedures. In order to make sure that your project is progressing as anticipated, you will be required to submit a brief progress report after four months.

At the end of your funding period, you will be required to:

  • Submit a final/annual report that details the outcomes/progress of your project in relation to the goals listed in your proposal
  • Submit an abstract on your project to the AEHN Annual Research Recognition Day

For questions regarding this exciting opportunity, please contact Solomon Praveen Samuel, D. Eng at
