The CAB Bond Memorial Research Grant assists researchers in pursuing original research and worthwhile projects that result in improving health outcomes for Texans.

Grant Project Guidelines and Requirements

Grants must be within the scope of the objectives of the TSHP R&E Foundation. The Foundation does not make gifts to individuals, but to organizations which agree to serve as project and fiscal managers. Preference is given to TSHP Section and Component Members. However, if funding is available, grants from other organizations may also be considered.

Projects funded by grants must be within the mission and scope of the objectives of the TSHP R&E Foundation.

Projects should be research-oriented and follow the scientific method, with reportable outcomes. Priority will be given to projects that are research-oriented. Non-research-oriented projects will be considered for grant funding based upon the overall contribution to the professional and public benefit of the project. Projects that involve human research, as defined by HHS and FDA regulations (45 CFR 46 and 45 CFR 50), must first have been submitted to the local Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to submission of the grant request. Evidence of IRB submission (at-least) must be provided with the grant request. Evidence of IRB approval must be provided before funding will be sent to the grant awardee. Should IRB approval not be obtained by the awardee prior to submission and the approval be subsequently denied, the grant request and award will be void.

Grant awards will fund only qualified direct expenses, which include:

  • Travel or administrative overhead expenses required for the conduct of the project or presentation of its results.
  • Specialized equipment or materials necessary for conduct of the project which are not ordinarily available from the organization’s operational resources and which must be procured from an outside source.
  • Salary or wages for consultants outside of the organization’s employment whose expertise is required for conduct of the project.
  • Grant requests may be submitted to supplement project funding for qualified direct expenses which may be partially or not funded by the applicant organization or other parties (e.g., un-budgeted operational expenses, other grant awards, charitable donations).

Indirect costs not to be funded include internal organizational fees assessed for administration of the grant funds.

Grant Oversight and Acknowledgement Information:

The Foundation does not award grants to individuals, but to organizations which agree to serve as project and fiscal managers. Likewise, grant funds are only payable to organizations (e.g., hospital, college) and they must sign an acknowledgement letter for oversight of disbursement of the funds. Grant funds will not be distributed until a signed letter is received.

Upon awarding of a grant, the Foundation Board may, at its discretion as a condition of the award, specify requirements for reporting the results of the project upon its completion.

Upon notification of grant award approval, the sponsoring organization must provide a signed agreement for oversight of disbursement of the funds in accordance with Foundation guidelines prior to issuance of payment of the grant award by the Foundation.

Who was Chester A. (CAB) Bond?

The Chester A. "CAB" Bond Memorial Research Grant Program honors an internationally renowned pharmacy educator and scholar. Dr. Bond was Professor of Pharmacy Practice and University Distinguished Professor for the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC), School of Pharmacy. During his career, he authored or co-authored over 140 articles and book chapters and received in excess of $1.2 million dollars in research funding.

He was honored eight times by the ASHP Research & Education Foundation for significant contributions to the literature in pharmacy practice. In 2001, he was the recipient of the TTUHSC President’s Distinguished Research Award. In 2005, he received the Russell R. Miller Award from the American College of Clinical Pharmacy for contributions that significantly advanced the clinical pharmacy literature. In 2007, he was named Distinguished Alumnus honoree by his pharmacy alma mater, the University of California at San Francisco (UCSF).

Beginning in the mid 1980’s until his death in June 2009, Dr. Bond conducted research that related pharmacist-provided clinical services with health and fiscal outcomes such as hospital costs, medication errors, adverse effects, etc. These papers have been described as “landmark” and his work on pharmacist-managed anticoagulation services and outcomes has been cited by The Joint Commission.

The grant program that bears his name assists pharmacist practitioners in hospitals and health systems, students, and faculty pursue original research and worthwhile projects that result in improving health outcomes for Texans.
