AAD Hair Loss and Alopecia Initiative in Research (HAIR) Grant Program
HAIR research grants will be offered to dermatologists, researchers, and trainees in the United States for the completion of basic, translational, and/or clinical research projects that address gaps in hair disorders research, with a particular emphasis on hair disorders in diverse populations.
This one-time grant program will offer one $200,000 grant (funded at $100,000 per year for two years) specifically for research on central centrifugal cicatricial alopecia (CCCA), as well as one $100,000 grant, three $50,000 grants, one $25,000 grant, and one $10,000 grant. Priority for the $10,000 – $100,000 grants will be given to research on CCCA, hair disorders in skin of color, racial differences or disparities in care, androgenetic alopecia (AGA) in women, frontal fibrosing alopecia (FFA), lichen planopilaris (LPP), the role of nutrition in hair loss, and environmental/genetic factors in hair loss.
