Foundation Funding

NEW FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES

 

 

CSRS Research Grant Program – 21st Century Development Grants

Cervical Spine Research Society (CSRS)

Amount: $75,000

Deadline: March 13, 2020 (LOI)

Indirect Cost: 0%

 

Summary: Grants are given to fund the highest quality applications likely to make the greatest impact on cervical spine research. For 2020, this grant is open to basic science and clinical research projects.

 

Eligibility: One member of the research team must be an Active Member of CSRS North America.

 

 

SFARI Collaboration on Sex Differences in Autism

Simons Foundation/Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI)

Amount: Up to $8,000,000/4 years

Deadline: April 21, 2020 (LOI)

Indirect Cost: 20%

 

Summary: There is growing recognition that synergistic efforts across scientific disciplines will contribute to addressing the most critical questions in ASD research and accelerate progress on the development of therapeutics. SFARI Collaborations are a new funding mechanism that will provide substantive and stable funding support to multidisciplinary teams of investigators tackling critical issues in the autism research field. A proposal must address how the impact of a given Collaboration will be greater than the sum of what would be possible through awards to individual laboratories.

For this SFARI Collaboration, we welcome proposals that will use an array of modern technologies to examine sex differences in brain function, within and across species, including humans, to identify key differences in gene, cell and circuit function that account for the observed differential sensitivities of the two sexes to ASD. A successful Collaboration must enhance our understanding of the biological bases for sex-specific differences in ASD and set the stage for development of novel interventions.

Eligibility: Applications may be submitted by domestic and foreign nonprofit organizations; public and private institutions, such as colleges, universities, hospitals, laboratories, units of state and local government; and eligible agencies of the federal government. There are no citizenship or country requirements.

At a minimum, all prospective CDs and PIs must hold a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree and have a faculty position or the equivalent at a college, university, medical school or other research facility. It is expected that successful applicants will be recognized scientific leaders in their respective fields with a history of working collaboratively with other investigators of diverse talents and approaches. See the Personnel FAQ section for more information on the responsibilities of a Collaboration director and principal investigator.

 

Hillman Emergent Innovation Program: Serious Illness and End of Life Program

Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation

Amount: $50,000

Deadline: April 27, 2020 (LOI)

Indirect Cost: 15%

 

Summary: The Hillman Emergent Innovation Program provides awards to accelerate the development of bold, nursing-driven interventions targeting the needs of vulnerable populations. The foundation seeks creative, early stage (pre-evidence or untested) innovations that target health and health care problems in new ways.

Priority consideration will be given to proposals that include one or more of the following:
– Engagement of patients, families, caregivers, and/or community organizations
– Inter-professional or multidisciplinary collaboration
– Institutional and community partnerships
– Provision of care in non-hospital settings
– Measurable goals and outcomes

Eligibility: The following are eligible to apply:
– U.S. 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations that are not classified as private foundations.
(The Foundation will consider only organizations that can provide proof of qualifying
non-profit status, including a tax-exempt determination letter from the Internal
Revenue Service.)
– International organizations that are the equivalent of U.S. 501(c)(3) organizations
that are submitting a project that focuses within the United States
– Government entities
– Faith-based organizations that welcome and serve all members of the community regardless of religious belief

 

Research Grant

Morton Cure Paralysis Fund (MCPF)

Amount: $75,000

Deadline: April 30, 2020

Indirect Cost: 0%

 

Summary: The Morton Cure Paralysis Fund (MCPF) is committed to developing effective therapies (cures) for paralysis associated with spinal cord injury and other disorders of the central nervous system (CNS).

MCPF funds activities that hold promise of identifying therapies (cures) for paralysis in humans. MCPF has particular focus of placing projects in the research pipeline, that is, enabling scientists to develop the proof concept data necessary to apply for larger NIH grants. The development of effective therapies for chronic injury is a high priority for the organization. Basic research will be supported if it has clear potential to accelerate progress at the applied end of the continuum and/or if it reflects innovative research or a ‘change of direction.’

The focus areas are:
1. Understanding the effects of spinal cord injury at the cellular level, particularly with emphasis on that which determines apoptosis and/or prohibits regrowth. As stated above, if the proposed project is at this level, it is important that the proposal demonstrate how the project is a change of direction, innovative research or can be quickly moved to therapeutic application.
2. Studying strategies to promote neuronal growth and survival, encourage the formation of synapses, enhance the production of myelin, restore conduction capabilities, or otherwise lead to restoration of the compromised circuitry in the acutely and chronically injured CNS.
3. Evaluating new therapies in clinical trial.

In addition to those elements listed above, MCPF will also take into account projects that:
– Encourage promising new investigators to undertake research on regeneration and recovery, particularly with respect to the spinal cord;
– Encourage researchers who are well-established in other areas to transfer their efforts to spinal cord research; and,
– Enable researchers with novel ideas to test their ideas and develop pilot data for seeking larger awards from NIH and other funding sources.

 

Eligibility: Qualified scientists at capable institutions will be considered for grant applications. Either senior scientists or postdoctoral fellows may serve as principal investigators.

 

Research Grants – Clinical and Basic Science

Ehlers-Danlos Society
Amount: up to $150,000

Deadline: May 22, 2020

Indirect Cost: 0%

 

Summary:

Clinical Research Major Grants:
These grants aim to support studies likely to require 1-2 years to complete and to cover the costs for researchers and study equipment. All areas of health and social care, and education applicable to our research priorities that have a direct impact on care in the Ehlers-Danlos syndromes (EDS) and hypermobility spectrum disorders (HSD) will be considered.

Basic Science Research Major Grants:
These grants aim to support studies likely to require 1-2 years to complete and to cover the costs for researchers and study equipment. All areas of the basic sciences applicable to our research priorities that have the potential to be translational in informing better care for people with EDS or HSD will be considered.

Our portfolio recognizes that there are a variety of disciplines within research. In cataloging the priorities, we have considered these in the context of:

– Basic Sciences (Genetics, molecular protein studies, disease models, i.e., how the disease develops and testing potential treatment approaches);
– Epidemiology (Study of the incidence and prevalence of diseases, association between conditions, causes of illness, natural history of illness);
– Therapeutics (Tools for diagnosis, tools for measuring the effects of treatment, treatments);
– Social Sciences (Social studies, health economics, psychology of illness); and
– Education (Teaching methods, Information, Standards and Guideline engagement).
