Call for Applications: Meso Foundation Research Grants
The Meso Foundation (formerly known as MARF) is the non-profit dedicated to ending the suffering caused by mesothelioma. We are the international collaboration of patients and families, physicians, advocates, and researchers dedicated to eradicating the life-ending and vicious effects of mesothelioma. We believe in a cure for meso. Given the human toll of suffering the disease causes, the compassion and energy of the meso community, the moral, legal and economic aspects of asbestos, and the benefits of meso research to cancer research generally, we believe that the resources to accomplish this cure are available and must be mobilized. We seek to marshal and utilize these resources responsibly, as effectively as possible, with financial transparency and by adhering to health policy guidelines that foster ethical clinical and administrative practices, and ethical decision making to:
· Offer hope and support to patients and families by educating them on the disease, helping them to obtain the most up-to-date information on treatment options and to connect with meso treatment specialists, and providing them assistance, emotional support and community with others;
· Raise awareness of meso, and advocate that the public and private sectors partner in the effort to cure it by directing the resources needed to stop this global tragedy; and
· Fund the highest quality and most promising meso research projects from around the world through rigorous peer-review. To date we have funded 86 projects, from six different countries, totaling over 8.2 million dollars.
The Meso Foundation offers research grants for two years up to $50,000 per year. Eligible projects may relate to benchwork, translational or clinical research that is not presently funded or pending review and may be conducted through any not-for-profit academic, medical or research institution. The Foundation will review and monitor the project's progress and results, requiring semi-annual disposition of funds reports, a ten month progress report, a presentation at the Foundation’s Symposium and a full progress report at the close of the project. The Foundation seeks exceptional projects for which the Foundation's funding is demonstrated to be essential and not duplicative. Please be advised that the Foundation does not pay institutional indirect costs.
Funded researchers will also be entitled to facilitated access to the National Mesothelioma Virtual Bank (NMVB),www.mesotissue.org.They will receive expedited review of requests to use the NMVB, and they will have direct, no-cost access to materials in the bank, as well as enhanced collections from the main sites of materials.
