In 2003 and 2004, research grants were distributed. In 2003, we gave 6 mentorship grants. While 7 were awarded both in 2004 and 2005.
The 2005 mentorship grants are available online. These allow young physician-scientists to work closely for a limited period with someone who has expertise in an area of hair research or hair disorders that they wish to focus on in their future careers.
Bosley Inc. had kindly agreed to support the mentorship grants through 2006. However, the AHRS hair research grants do not have renewable funding in place. We are in need of support to advance research projects and put in place new website initiatives such as a registry of various rare or uncommon hair disorders. At AHRS, we believe communication is key to promoting a better understanding of hair disorders and their treatment.
The AHRS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that welcomes and needs your financial support. All donations are tax deductible. Contributions can be made in the name of a family member or friend. All contributors and their honorees will be listed on this website at the end of each year. Within broad categories, donations may also be designated for a particular area of hair research.
