American Venous Forum Announces BSN-JOBST Research Grant

AVF Foundation is pleased to announce that the BSN-Jobst Research Grant has been increased to provide a $100,000 grant for original, basic or clinical research in venous or lymphatic disease. The competition is open to residents, fellows in a vascular training program, as well as physicians who have completed their training within the past five (5) years.

Milwaukee, WI, July 24, 2014 --(PR.com)-- AVF Foundation is pleased to announce that the BSN-Jobst Research Grant has been increased to provide a $100,000 grant for original, basic or clinical research in venous or lymphatic disease. The competition is open to residents, fellows in a vascular training program, as well as physicians who have completed their training within the past five (5) years.

Conrad Jobst dedicated his life and expertise to the development of gradient compression garments to better relieve the symptoms of venous disease. Mr. Jobst suffered from vascular disease, and his initial line of elastic “stockings” has now evolved into an extensive portfolio of advanced wound care and compression therapy products for the treatment of venous and lymphatic diseases. In 1995, in association with the American Venous Forum, BSN-JOBST initiated the BSN-JOBST Research Fellowship in Venous and Lymphatic Diseases to further Conrad’s legacy of innovation. For almost 20 years, the research developed by grant recipients has helped advance the understanding and treatment of vein diseases. American Venous Forum and BSN medical invite those interested in applying for the 2015 Research Fellowship to submit an application for consideration.

The BSN-Jobst Research Grant can help jump start the careers of young investigators in the field of venous and lymphatic disease. Previous BSN-Jobst awardees describe how the award helped advance their careers:

"Receiving a BSN-Jobst grant not only provided the research support to help my academic career but also allowed me to become a part of a phenomenal group of clinician- scientists interested in venous disease and vascular biology." –Carolyn Glass (2009 winner)

“I greatly appreciate the support that the AVF provided. The AVF is a top-notch organization. The grant gave me freedom to pursue my research interests. This is a monumental opportunity for a young scientist interested in basic science research. Apply for the grant!” –Stephanie K. Beidler, MD (2006 winner)

"The JOBST grant helped establish my academic foundation. Without this independent funding, I would not have been able to secure the time and resources to develop my research and educational career." - Brajesh K Lal, MD (2001 winner)

“The BSN Jobst Grant had one of the greatest impacts on my research career as a young investigator. The Jobst Award was my first ever grant and provided me with the financial means to perform basic science research in venous ulcer disease. Ultimately, the Jobst Award set the foundation and groundwork for future funding that would shape my career goals and academic interests.” – Joseph Raffetto, MD (1999 winner)

“The BSN-Jobst Research Grant offered through the American Venous Forum is an important stepping stone in the development of a career path. It is an important opportunity for young researchers to forward our knowledge of venous pathologies while competing for a grant targeted specifically for this disease process.” –Andrew Stanley, MD (1997 winner)
