Call for Applications: Arthritis National Research Foundation Research Grant Program
The arthritis research grant application deadline is January 15, 2014 at 5:00 PM PST. Grants are awarded on an annual basis.
Grant applicants will be notified of the outcome by April 30, 2014.
The arthritis grant offered by the Arthritis National Research Foundation is meant to jump-start your research. We want your arthritis research ideas to become reality. While we cannot support everyone's projects we welcome all new concepts and ideas. At the Arthritis National Research Foundation we want to move arthritis research forward to find new treatments and to cure arthritis.
Submit your research proposal and be a part of finding a cure for arthritis related diseases. This arthritis grant is here to fund young investigators ready to push the envelope of arthritis research.
ANRF’s Board of Directors and Scientific Advisory Board are committed to providing uninterrupted research in the search for new therapies and a cure. The results will mean improved treatment for the estimated 50 million Americans and 300,000 who suffer from some form of arthritis.
The Scientific Advisory Board and the Board of Directors review grant proposals annually.
Clinical and basic studies will be considered. Clinical studies should have a translational component that helps reveal the underlying mechanisms or response to therapy.
Investigators must possess either a M.D. and/or Ph.D. degree or equivalent, affiliated with a qualified, non-profit institution.
Preference will be given to senior post-doctoral investigators transitioning to independent investigator status and new assistant professors. Applicant may not have (or ever had) an NIH R01 grant or equivalent. (“Or equivalent” is defined as receipt of an NIH K08 grant and other support totaling more than $200,000 per year.)
ANRF will seek to fund at least one or two grants per year focusing on clinical research.
Grants are awarded for one year. First-year recipients may submit a detailed progress report by mid-January during the year of their award, requesting a second year.
Grants awarded will be in the range of $50,000 to $100,000. Partial funding may be awarded if grantee has documentation that the remainder of the funding for proposed research has been acquired.
ANRF will fund salaries, supplies and equipment directly related to the proposed studies. Overhead or indirect costs will not be funded.
ANRF will seek to fund at least one grant each year focusing on juvenile arthritis.
ANRF routinely funds 12-20 grants per year.
Additional administrative review may be rendered to determine priority for funding when multiple proposals are received from a single laboratory, Division or Department.
Applicants need not be U.S. citizens; however, all work must be done at a qualified U.S. nonprofit research insitution.
American Thyroid Association Call for Proposals for Research Grants
Deadline: January 31, 2014
Grant Review: The ATA Research Committee will rank proposals according to their scientific merit. Authors of selected proposals will be notified by March 30, 2014 and invited to submit a complete grant application.
Electronic Submission : Proposals must be submitted electronically through the research grant application feature on the ATA website, www.thyroid.org.
The American Thyroid Association (ATA) is pleased to announce the availability of funds to support new investigator initiated research projects in the area of thyroid function and disease.

Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation Research Grants Program
The Sjögren’s Syndrome Foundation strives to foster research that will have the greatest potential impact on Sjögren’s patients, ensuring new therapeutics are developed and a cure found.
One important way in which we strive for change is to promote innovative research that will have the greatest impact on the lives of those who have this prevalent and devastating disease. We want to help spur the research community to generate fresh ideas that will bring novel approaches to treatment and the development of new therapeutics and lead to a cure. The SSF currently focuses on many initiatives to reach this goal, including: the development of Clinical Practice Guidelines, the launching of a Clinical Trials Consortium, advocacy among federal research entities, and through the SSF Research Grants Program.
The SSF Research Grants Program places a high priority on both clinical and basic scientific research into the cause, prevention, detection, treatment, and cure of Sjögren’s, with support provided to investigators at every career level from student to junior investigator to senior-level leader.
SSF Research Funding Priorities
Innovation is key for all SSF research funding. We must inspire new ideas and the gathering of data necessary to determine if those ideas are viable so that investigators can take a risk to pursue a concept that could prove to be a major breakthrough in Sjögren’s.
Funding decisions for SSF grants will be based on the following priorities:
• Innovative and creative concepts
• Novel diagnostics and relevance to the SSF Breakthrough Goal
• Direct relevance to Sjögren’s
• High quality science
• Preliminary data; probability of SSF seed money leading to an NIH grant
• Potential practical importance through the use of human tissues or blood samples
• Outcome could define new therapeutic target in SS
• Collaborative aspects of project
• Focused and achievable in the time lines
• Author on peer-reviewed articles
• A young investigator who has already displayed a productive commitment to SS research and a potential career in the field
• Letters of recommendation (if required) praise commitment, focus, high standards and excellence Financial support important for the salary support and execution of the research
•Excellent lab environment and mentorship available if young investigator
Grants will be awarded in amounts ranging between $15,000 and $50,000 a year for two years, depending on satisfactory progress. A human study that reviewers deem to be the most innovative project will be eligible for a $50,000 grant. All investigators will submit a budget for$35,000 and revise the budget once an award offer is accepted.
SSF research grants are open to basic and clinical scientists holding an advanced degree (MD, DDS, DMD, or PhD) at any U.S. university or research institution. Both junior and senior investigators may apply. For physicians, advanced clinical training in a specialty related to Sjögren’s, such as rheumatology or ophthalmology, is desirable.
The application receipt deadline is February 1, 2015. The grant funding period is July 1 through June 30.
