In 2019, AAMA proudly announced the creation of the prestigious Medical Acupuncture Research Foundation (MARF) Pilot Grant. The grant was renamed to honor one of the Academy’s founding fathers, Dr. Allen McDaniels. We encourage all members who are engaged in clinical research to apply for the Allen McDaniels Grant – Medical Acupuncture Research Foundation.
The foundation is encouraging applicants to submit only pragmatic clinical trial proposals rather than placebo comparison trials. We will award up to 1 grant each grant cycle to the qualified applicant for an amount up to $30,000.
