Congratulations to Dr. Abou-Daya who is the recipient of the 2023 AST Career Transition Grant!

His proposal focuses on leveraging AI to build a discovery platform for transplantation immunology.

The purpose of the AST Research Network Career Transition Research Grants is to promote the careers of academic investigators whose independent research program is focused on the field of basic science, translational and clinical investigation in solid organ transplantation. The grants are intended to provide support for the investigator’s transition to an R-series or equivalent grant.

The Career Transition Research Grant seeks to:

  1. Foster the transition of early to mid-career scientists who are contributing to our understanding of transplant science/immunobiology and/or treatment of transplant recipients and need funding to start or strengthen work that is not yet funded by larger grants.
  2. Foster research that is of high merit.
  3. Encourage the continued commitment of high-quality applicants to careers in academic transplantation.
