Grants to USA researchers for innovative, high-impact research on Myelodysplastic Syndromes, its treatment, and prevention. Priority is given to studies focusing on stem cells, molecular genetics, splicing factors, epigenetics, the microenvironment, and novel therapeutic targets relevant to MDS.

The Program specifically focuses on MDS research, exclusive of AML and MPN. The Program supports translational research that includes bidirectional efforts, building upon research in the laboratory and therapeutic outcomes in the clinic. Innovative studies with transformative potential to elucidate MDS etiology and to develop new treatments are particularly encouraged.

The award may be used to support the Award Recipient’s salary and fringe benefits; salaries and fringe benefits of postdoctoral fellows, technicians or graduate students; publication of scientific data; travel to scientific meetings; laboratory and data processing supplies; and other direct expenses such as equipment essential to the project. Salaries must be in proportion to the percent effort on the research project. However, percent effort may exceed the percent of total compensation requested from The Taub Foundation.
