The new investigator research grant is awarded to new investigators who are able to demonstrate

The New Investigator Research Grant is awarded to new investigators who are able to demonstrate:

  • Measurable objectives that relate to practice-based research that focuses on advancing pharmacy practice models;

  • Rigorous research methods that support the study objectives;

  • Mentoring activities between a senior investigator/advisor and a new investigator;

  • A description of the impact that the results of the project will have on advancing pharmacy practice models;

  • A description of the potential to generalize findings to other health care facilities;

  • Interdisciplinary collaboration; and

  • An organized plan for prudent use of grant funds


The goals of this program are to

The goals of this program are to:

  • Support practice-based research related to the Pharmacy Practice Model Initiative (PPMI);

  • Develop new investigators’ research skills while fostering development of mentoring relationships with more experienced senior investigators.


Eligibility criteria

Eligibility Criteria

  • The proposed research must focus on the advancement of pharmacy practice models and be conducted by a pharmacist new investigator. The principal investigator must be a new researcher within 5 years of completion of his/her terminal degree or postgraduate training or have professional experience greater than five years and no more than two externally funded research projects as a principal investigator. The principal investigator must be a licensed pharmacist and multidisciplinary research teams are strongly encouraged;

  • A senior investigator must participate on the research team as a mentor/advisor and assume responsibility for compliance with requirements of the grant program;

  • Consideration should be given to allocating a portion of the budget to support biostatistics consultation;

  • The proposed research must be submitted to an Institutional Review Board (IRB) for approval or either be exempt from review;

  • The ASHP Foundation only awards grants to tax-exempt institutions or agencies in the United States of America;


Eligibility criteria cont

  • The study timeline should not exceed 24 months from project initiation.


Qualifications of senior investigator

Qualifications of Senior Investigator

  • The senior investigator does not have to be a pharmacist; however, he/she must participate on the research team as a mentor/advisor;

  • Requisite research experience includes:

    • Formal research training;

    • Publication track record

      • Research publication of original, peer-reviewed biomedical literature in journals

    • Success in obtaining extramural grant support; and

Selection CriteriaSignificance (10 points)

  • Does this study address an important problem?

  • Is there a justification within the background section about the research field that led to the proposed study?

  • Does the reason for conducting the study challenge existing paradigms or propose new methods, techniques or technologies?

  • Do the investigators identify gaps in the existing evidence base and propose how the proposed study will fill those gaps?

  • If the study is not innovative, but is essential to move the field forward, the applicant should mention and discuss this in the proposal.

  • Does the investigator demonstrate how the hypothesis and research will increase knowledge in the field and relate the study to longer-term, broad, scientific objectives and to the advancement of public health?


Selection criteria objectives 20 points

Selection CriteriaObjectives (20 points)

  • Are the study objectives consistent with the specific grant program focus and the strategic priorities of the ASHP Research and Education Foundation?
