Contact Us

If you have any questions regarding the RPB Grants Program, please contact RPB's Grants Administrator, Pattie Moran, at 646-892-9566 or pmoran@rpbusa.org.

RPB Physician-Scientist Awards promote the clinical and/or basic science research of clinicians, recognizing that the clinical scientist has difficulty competing against basic scientists for national-level grant support. The award, $300,000, is payable in two (2) payments, $150,000 per payment upon approval of a 14-month substantive progress report. MDs or MD/PhDs holding primary appointments as Assistant Professor or Associate Professor in ophthalmology departments are eligible. PhDs are not eligible. Candidates should be actively engaged in clinical research. Awardees will be required to expend the award within three (3) years if granted the full $300,000. Otherwise, the awardee is required to expend the initial $150,000 award within two (2) years.  

The fall cycle application deadline for the Physician-Scientist Award is July 1. This award is not available during the spring cycle. (If July 1 falls on a weekend or a holiday, consider the following business day the deadline.)
