The Thrasher Research Fund aims to support the development of medical research in child health by awarding small grants to new researchers. The Thrasher Early Career Award focuses on hypothesis-driven research that offers substantial promise for meaningful advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases in children, particularly those that can be applied more broadly. The goal is to fund applicants who will go on to be independent investigators.

A wide variety of research topics will be considered, with incidence and severity being the two main characteristics used for assessment when determining the significance of the proposed research topic. Preference is given to applicants who show potential for creating impact within the field of child health.

There are two cycles each year with up to 16 applications awarded in each one.


Applications are invited from early career medical researchers with a focus on child health, including:

  • Physicians who are in a residency/fellowship training programme or who completed that programme no more than one year before the date of submission of the Concept Paper.
  • Postdoctoral researchers who received the doctoral level degree no more than three years prior to the date of submission of the Concept Paper.

Each project needs to be under the guidance of a mentor.

The programme is open to applications from institutions based inside and outside the United States. There are no restrictions with regard to citizenship.
