INTRODUCTION
The North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG) has partnered with the Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals to award funds for one U.S.-based training award to support the development of expertise in Pediatric and Adolescent Contraceptive, Sexual and Reproductive Health Research. All topics in these areas will be eligible for this award including those specifically focusing on the levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine systems Mirena® and Skyla®.

The goals of the Bayer/ NASPAG Young Investigator Grant are:

  1. To promote knowledge of research-based reproductive and gynecologic care in adolescent populations,
  2. To advance reproductive and gynecologic clinical care for adolescent patients, and
  3. To facilitate the academic growth, advanced education, and development of future practitioners and researchers, thereby investing in enhancing the specialty of pediatric and adolescent gynecology care and research. Bayer/ NASPAG Young Investigator Grant for Pediatric and Adolescent Contraceptive, Sexual and Reproductive Health Research Research will offer one grant of $20,000 for research support (including up to $2,000 for a mentor stipend).

In an effort to deepen the blending of research evidence with policy and practice, this training award is intended to support the academic advancement of adolescent gynecology clinicians from diverse backgrounds (i.e., gynecology, pediatric gynecology, adolescent medicine, pediatrics, family medicine, internal medicine) who are still in early stages of training (i.e., residents, fellows, and faculty in their first five years post training) to participate in a mentored research project and to develop skills in adolescent contraceptive, sexual, and reproductive health research. At the time of application and for the duration of funding, the eligible candidate must be based in programs and institutions in the United States.
