The AVF Foundation is pleased to announce that the Jobst Research Grant will provide a $100,000 grant for original, basic or clinical research in venous or lymphatic disease. The competition is open to residents, fellows in a vascular training program, as well as physicians who have completed their training within the past five (5) years.
Conrad Jobst dedicated his life and expertise to the development of gradient compression garments to better relieve the symptoms of venous disease. Mr. Jobst suffered from vascular disease, and his initial line of elastic “stockings” has now evolved into an extensive portfolio of advanced wound care and compression therapy products for the treatment of venous and lymphatic diseases. In 1995, in association with the American Venous Forum, JOBST initiated the JOBST Research Fellowship in Venous and Lymphatic Diseases to further Conrad’s legacy of innovation. For almost 20 years, the research developed by grant recipients has helped advance the understanding and treatment of vein diseases. The American Venous Forum and JOBST look forward to announcing details of the 2019 grant application process very soon.
