Jacques and Gloria Gossweiler Foundation Neurology Research Grants Program
Next call deadline: May 1, 2014
The number of people suffering from Parkinson’s disease in Western countries is steadily increasing due to aging of population. They increase form 0.6% in 65 years old people to 2.6% at the age of 85. Long standing and intensive research in the mechanisms underlying the disorder give rise to a large number of publications in scientific journals. They have greatly enhanced our knowledge of aspects of the cause and development of the disease, and provided a number of relevant concepts in the field. Large scale, international studies are regularly been published about the pharmacological treatment of different aspects of the disease providing rational means to decide, which treatment is best suited to help patients in the different stages of the disorder.
However, only very few data on other aspects of treatment and management of patients with Parkinson’s disease are available so far.
For this reason the Jacques and Gloria Gossweiler Foundation has opened a funding opportunity for high quality research on non-pharmacological treatment of symptoms experienced by patients with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders.
Researchers working on studies examining the effects of physical activity, physiotherapy, ergo therapy, and speech therapy as well as on psychological and spiritual approaches, shall be supported. Both small, short-term exploratory studies and more advanced, long-term projects will be supported. Projects submitted by researchers in training will also be supported.

American Society for Blood and Marrow Transplantation New Investigator Awards
Submission Deadline: October 1, 2014
The ASBMT New Investigator Awards are designed to encourage clinical or laboratory research by young investigators in the field of blood and marrow transplantation. The award, $30,000 per year for two years, preferably is to be used to support the investigator’s salary for his or her research effort. Alternatively, the award may be used for direct support of research costs.
To be eligible for consideration for a New Investigator Award, an applicant must be a fellow-in-training or junior-level faculty (an instructor or assistant professor no more than three years past a post-doctoral program or a clinical research fellowship).
Applicants with other significant new investigator funding from peer-reviewed extramural sources may be less competitive than those without such funding. Institutional startup funds for junior faculty are not considered peer-reviewed or extramural.
Applicants are encouraged, but not required, to be an ASBMT member. An applicant must have a sponsor who is an ASBMT member. The sponsor serves as a mentor for the applicant’s research and career development.
Applicants are required to submit the New Investigator Awards application, a curriculum vitae that adheres to the NIH biographical sketch format, a list of Other Support that also adheres to the NIH format, a letter of recommendation from the sponsor/mentor (maximum two pages), and a description of the proposed research that must not exceed four pages.
Judging and Evaluation Criteria
The review committee is chaired by a member of the ASBMT Board of Directors, appointed by the ASBMT President with Board approval. The Chair then appoints review committee members ad hoc, after approval of the ASBMT President but based on the expertise required to review the topics covered by the applications.
New Investigator Award applications will be evaluated for (a) scientific merit within the field of blood and marrow transplantation, (b) significance and anticipated overall impact of the potential findings, (c) institutional environment, (d) the training record of the sponsor/mentor, and (e) the potential contribution of the proposed research to the field of blood and marrow transplantation. As these are “new” investigator awards, less emphasis is placed on preliminary data.
The number of award(s) that can be made varies from year to year, depending on available funding.
Unfortunately, due to the additional work that would be required of reviewers and the short time lines involved, applicants will not receive written critiques after review.
The award winner(s) will be notified around late November or early December, in time to make arrangements to attend the 2015 BMT Tandem Meetings, February 11-15, 2015, in San Diego, California. The award(s) will be publicly announced at this meeting. The award will be activated July 1, 2015.
The award will be $30,000 for the first year, renewable for an additional $30,000 for a second year, contingent upon a report of satisfactory progress.
