2016 ASH BRIDGE GRANT PROGRAM
MPN Research Foundation congratulates our MPN Challenge™ grantees Zhijian Qian, a PhD from the University of Illinois at Chicago and Ann Mullally a MD at The Brigham and Women’s Hospital for receiving the 2016 ASH Bridge Grant. They are 2 of 9 investigators who have received the latest round of ASH Bridge grants to sustain their promising research programs that scored well but could not be supported by the NIH as a result of limited funding. As a result of the limited funding the American Society of Hematology recently announced it will commit $3 Million annually to help preserve critical blood disease research.
