EMSS Research Grants 2019

The Endocrine & Metabolic Society of Singapore is pleased to announce that the research grants for the year 2019 is now open for application.

This year, the Society will be giving out three research grants, of the amount of SGD $30,000 each.  The aim of these grants is to encourage clinical or basic science research amongst EMSS members who have interesting or novel research proposals.  Each grant is of sufficient quantity to allow for such purchases as commercial kits for assaying hormones of interests or reagents for simple basic science research, to enable successful applicants to embark on small-scale projects, which they can work on personally. 

In view of the quantum, they are ideal for advanced specialty trainees although all EMSS members are eligible to apply.  Proposals for utilization of funds for the purchase of expensive equipment or employment of manpower to supplement grants given from external sources for the same project aims will not be considered, as it is hoped that each project will have its own specific target to achieve.  Requests for increases in grant funding may be considered, depending on the quantum remaining at the end of the grant call exercise.
