Grants are to be awarded in Geriatric Medicine under the Irma and Paul Milstein Program for Senior Health and Dermatology in Atopic Dermatitis

MMAAP Foundation invites the submission of applications in the areas of Geriatric Medicine and Dermatology in Atopic Dermatitis which will be referred to independent expert panels in the respective fields both in China and in the US. All grant applications will be submitted to the Foundation’s website (mmaapf.org). The Chinese expert panels will review the applications first and make recommendations for further evaluation by the US expert panels for final selection. In the case of Dermatology, US expert panels are the Medical Advisory Committee of American Skin Association. Awards will be made to outstanding not-for-profit, medical and scientific institutions in the United States and China to support research and training. MMAAP Foundation will provide the sole support for these initiatives.

One Fellowship and one Project award will be provided in each of the above areas. The Fellowship award provides support for promising investigators for one year training in clinical or basic research in the United States at a distinguished partner institution. Individuals selected must have documented research experience. The Project award provides support for a translation research project to be conducted in China that has the potential to affect care in China within 2 years. In order to qualify for funding, Chinese applicants must have demonstrated ability in clinical research. Both awards require the applicants to have the command of English in order to successfully collaborate with partnering institutions.

An explicit goal for these awards is to create concrete advances in world health and to produce mutually beneficial partnerships that will facilitate the development of long term relationships between academic institutions in the US and China, as well as greater Asia.
