Description:

The purpose of the E.W. Al Thrasher Awards is to improve children's health through medical research, with an emphasis on projects that have the potential to translate into clinically meaningful results within a few years. The Thrasher Research Fund is open to applications that address a variety of significant pediatric problems. Both incidence and severity are considered when determining the significance of the proposed topic. The Fund supports research both within and outside the United States.

Ideal applications for the E.W. 'Al' Thrasher Award address significant health problems that affect children in large numbers and offer the potential for practical solutions to these problems. Such solutions should be innovative and have the potential for rapid and broad applicability with low financial and/or technical barriers to implementation. Hypothesis-driven research is given priority over exploratory, hypothesis-generating research. The Fund uses a two-step process for E.W. Al Thrasher Awards. The first step is the submission of a Concept Paper. These concept papers are reviewed by the Fund's staff and Executive Committee. Applicants whose concepts generally fit with the current priorities of the Fund are invited to submit a full proposal.
