SOAP Gertie Marx Education and Research Grant
SOAP has decided not to fund a SOAP Gertie Marx Education and Research Grant for 2018. We remain strongly committed to fulfilling the mission of facilitating important research and supporting research careers in obstetric anesthesia. We will continue to fund the SOAP Young Investigator Grant (https://soap.org/2018-soap-young-investigator-grant.php). Our strategic vision for research support is to develop a multi-center network for collaborative research, allowing SOAP to support larger studies of important questions in obstetric anesthesia. Plans for developing the structure and functioning of such a network are in development.
SOAP Gertie Marx Education Research Grant Recipients
From 2011-2017, the Society for Obstetric Anesthesia and Perinatology offered the SOAP/Gertie Marx Education and Research Grant. The goal of this program was to provide initial funding for projects and investigators with the intention that the results of these projects would form the basis of subsequent grant applications to other society, foundation (e.g., IARS, FAER) or federal sources. This award was not intended to supplement ongoing projects or to provide additional funding to partially funded projects.
The SOAP/Gertie Marx Education and Research Grant provided a maximum of $100,000 over two years to support research in obstetric anesthesia or a closely related area. Applications for fundable projects included research in basic physiology, clinical practice, or teaching/training methods.
