Aniara Grant

Coagulation Research Grant | 2018


Aniara Diagnostica's Coagulation Research Grant provides $20,000 for established investigators (eg - faculty at an academic institution) and for students/trainees to do innovative coagulation/hematology reseach. Deadline for receipt of application is November 1, 2018.

The Aniara Reseach Panel awards one yearly $20,000 grant for specialized in hematology and coagulation research. All proposed projects must be in the coagulation/hematology scientific field.


This year, we’re asking for projects that deal specifically with EDS — Ehlers-Danlos syndrome — and its effects on hemostasis and thrombosis. Extensive bruising, spontaneous arterial rupture, rupture of hollow organs, and severe internal bleeding are predominant features in EDS. Patients suffering from such syndromes typically undergo hematological studies including evaluation of clotting factors, platelet aggregation, and bleeding time.

Aniara has a passionate interest in this research because one of our own family suffers from EDS. We hope the grant will be used to spread awareness of this disease and address its specific issues within the hemostasis and coagulation fields.


Funding is restricted to North America, South America, Latin America, and Nordic countries.. This grant program does not pay educational tuition, nor does it offer scholarships or fellowships of any kind.


Applicants are expected to have advanced degrees (Ph.D. or equivalent) and be associated with an educational organization or institution. Independent researchers or those pursuing a Ph.D.-level degree may apply, but awards to non-PhD. applicants are rare. As a general rule, all applicants are expected to have published a minimum of three articles in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Grant Amount

ANIARA will award one $20,000.00 grant recipient per year.

Grant Restrictions

Aniara Coagulation Research Grants may not be used for indirect costs, overhead, and other expenses not directly related to the project. Fringe benefits are also excluded, as are salaries.

Funds may not be used for travel to scientific/professional meetings or conferences, legal actions, land acquisition, endowments, construction of permanent field stations, or publishing research results.

Thank you for applying.
