Call for Applications: Alpha-1 Foundation Gordon L. Snider Scholar Award
The Alpha-1 Foundation is accepting applications for a new research grant, the Gordon L. Snider Scholar Award.
The award is named after Gordon L. Snider, MD, one of the most influential researchers in Alpha-1. Snider not only made seminal scientific contributions clarifiying Alpha-1-related lung disease, but also laid the groundwork for the Foundation’s research program. In particular, he stressed the importance of encouraging young investigators to pursue a career in Alpha-1 research.
The award’s objective is to provide additional career development support for outstanding young investigators who have continued to conduct research in Alpha-1-related lung or liver disease after completion of their postdoctoral fellowship. It is expected that the award will provide an incentive for a career in Alpha-1 research.
The Alpha-1 Foundation intends to commit up to $225,000 ($75,000/year) over three years to fund one award.
Deadline to apply is July 25, 2014.
Call for Submissions: Microbiome Awards
Deadline for Submission is May 31, 12PM PST.
The Microbiome Awards provides young, extraordinary scientists with funding and recognition to carry out scientific work in the field of Microbiome research.
Entrants must have been awarded their Ph.D in the last 5 years
This is an international contest. Submissions to the Awards are admitted from any researcher regardless of age, gender, country of origin, background or religion.
Submissions will not be accepted from members of scientific groups supervised by any of the judges.
The research described in the submission must fall within the Microbiome field. Incomplete submissions or those that do not meet the requirements will be rejected.
MO BIO Laboratories, main sponsor of the Microbiome Awards is generously donating prizes for more than $10,000 in value to distribute among the awardees. The winner of the competition will receive a Research Package consisting of the analysis of 100 microbiome samples by the EMP consortium (*). The sample analysis includes Nucleic acid extraction (using MO BIO products) and targeted amplicon analysis (16S rDNA).
(*) All data generated by the EMP together with the physical and chemical contextual data provided by the researcher, will be made public through the EMP data portal www.microbio.me/emp. If the awardee chooses the privacy of the project, the prize will consist of MO BIO products for the correspondant amount of the prize.
The winning proposals will be selected based on scientific merit and originality by a Scientific Review Committee. Each winner will be contacted directly and then the names will be posted on the Microbiome Project website on September 15, 2014. All decisions are final.

Building Muscle Initiative Grant Opportunity
The deadline for submission is June 1, 2014 at 5:00 P.M. Pacific Standard Time.
Our Mission is to find treatments for Nemaline Myopathy (NM).
A Foundation Building Strength (AFBS) is a non-profit organization striving to stimulate and advance the science of treating NM and related conditions, ultimately laying the groundwork for the development of commercially available treatments for these diseases..
“Building Muscle” Initiative
AFBS is excited to announce an ambitious initiative to fund up to $1M in research grants, making a significant contribution to our mission to find treatments for NM. Historically, AFBS has funded research that will advance our understanding of the pathogenesis of NM in order to design and optimize treatment and management strategies. For this round of funding, the primary objective of the Building Muscle Initiative is to support investigators interested in these three areas:
1. Improving Access to Human Samples: Access to human tissue is a bottleneck in research.
Coming up with a good solution that may leverage our connections to families with NM will be a big help to future research in the field. This area includes development of a more comprehensive NM tissue repository either centrally or locally such that researchers have a larger collection of easily accessible NM muscle samples at their disposal in order to conduct their research. This would include development of a protocol for tissue procurement from patients. This area could also include creation of a registry that provides for patient consent, easy searching, and a process for procuring samples. Projects that develop outreach and strategies to build up the number of muscle samples will also be considered in this area.
2. Improving Pulmonary Function: Any project that studies the improvement of pulmonary function in NM patients will be considered. This could include the design and conduct of clinical trials whose aim is to investigate methods to improve pulmonary muscle strength and to optimize clearance of secretions to ultimately improve quality of life for those living with NM. Endpoints might include impact of exercise, optimization of support for related sleep disorders, or development of methods to more effectively measure pulmonary function.
Modalities could include therapeutics, exercise, or devices. Development of validated endpoints of pulmonary function in NM patients would also be considered in this area.
3. Improving Our Understanding of NM: This area includes studies on the prevalence and/or natural history of NM and related disorders, or the development of meaningful endpoints that could be used in clinical development. For example, this could mean clinical research and data collection in order to more clearly define the natural history of NM such that clinicians can better understand the progression of different severities of disease over the course of the lifespan.
