Call for Applications: Clinical Trials in Thalassemia Cell and Gene Therapy Grant Award
The purpose of this initiative is to speed the application of recent translational advances in gene therapy to clinical trials. The Foundation recognizes that there are many key areas worthy of support in the search for a cure for thalassemia with cell therapy and gene therapy. While several funding mechanisms are available for a range of studies on vector development, proof of concept studies in animal models, and transplantation, there remains a funding gap for launching human trials. Both phase I (safety) and phase II (efficacy) trials are eligible for support. Funding and candidate eligibility: Total funding of up to $60,000 per year will be available (including indirect costs of 8%). With satisfactory evidence of progress the grant may be renewed for a second year. The research may not be conducted at a for-profit laboratory. Because the purpose of the support is to facilitate launch of clinical trials, eligible studies proposed for this RFA must be accompanied by a realistic timeline of progress to human trials. The Foundation recognizes that this timeline can be long. Applicants should state explicitly the status of their proposed trials, for example whether the trial has been approved by the recombinant DNA Advisory Committee (RAC), or Food and Drug Administration (or equivalent processes at non-US sites), or whether review meetings at regulatory agencies have been scheduled. Awards will be announced in June 2014.
The completed application is due Monday February 3, 2014.
Call for Applications: Support for Ongoing Research in Thalassemia Grant
The Cooley’s Anemia Foundation invites national and international applications for 2014-2015 grants to support ongoing clinical research projects in Thalassemia. The goal of this initiative is to support investigators from all disciplines and backgrounds (MD, RN, PhD, MPH, MSW or other disciplines) with their ongoing clinical projects to address one or more of the following areas impacting patients with thalassemia: including but not limited to fertility, pregnancy and family planning; quality of life/psychosocial; burden of disease, cardiac issues and iron overload. The stipend will be $40,000 annually with possibility of one year renewal upon submission of a renewal application and approval by the Foundation’s Scientific Review Committee and Board of Directors. This level of funding would be appropriate for support of innovative small-scale pilot studies, observational trials, or ancillary support for ongoing interventional studies (for example support of a trainee joining an existing trial, or new biological endpoint analyses for an existing trial). In the case of ancillary studies, investigators should clearly document the support for the parent trial in their “other support” declarations. Junior and senior faculty are eligible; fellows and trainees are not eligible. Investigators must interact directly with patients or patient-related data. Awards will be announced in June 2014.
Call for Applications: 2014 NARSAD Independent Investigator Grant
The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is now accepting online applications for the 2014 NARSAD Independent Investigator Grant.
Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, December 31, 2013, 11:59 p.m. Eastern
Submit your application as early as possible to avoid any last-minute technical complications that may arise with your submission.
The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is the largest non-government, donor-supported organization that distributes funds for brain and behavior disorder research.
The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation NARSAD Independent Investigator Grant offers up to $50,000 a year for two (2) years and is intended for scientist at the associate professor level (or equivalent) with national competitive supports as a principal Investigator (P.I.).
Please note that an assistant professor who is a Principal Investigator (P.I.) on a NIH R01 grant is now eligible for the Independent Investigator Grant. The Independent Investigator Grant stands between the Young and Distinguished Investigator Grants. The Young Investigator is intended to extend initial research training, or support scientists at the assistant professor rank. The Distinguished Investigator supports senior investigators (full professor or equivalent) pursuing innovative, new directions. Strict adherence to eligibility guidelines for the Independent Investigator will apply to prevent overlap between the programs, and to ensure that a reasonable proportion of applications judged to be excellent can be funded.
The program is intended to facilitate innovative research opportunities and supports basic, as well as translational and/or clinical investigators, however, research must be relevant to understanding, treatment and prevention of serious psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, mood disorders, anxiety disorders, or early onset brain and behavior disorders.
As is well known, the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is interested in supporting the full range of relevant neurobiological and psychobiological basic science. We also support clinical grants which can include careful studies using qualitative research approaches or research generating preliminary data to explore a new hypothesis generated by clinical experience or large sample studies. NARSAD Grants are not sufficient to support expensive large sample patient-based studies but it may be possible to attach a study to a clinical project already under way or for which other funding has become available. Some possibilities for preliminary clinical studies include:
1. Support for an add-on study to identify a biomarker in the context of an ongoing clinical trial.
2. Determining if a computer-based cognitive or other remediation enhances effectiveness of a treatment.
3. Proof of principle study in a small number of subjects to see if efficacy is detected with a new treatment.
4. Testing a novel hypothesis within an already established data set.
5. Research on productive work and other treatment outcomes.
These examples do not define specific Brain & Behavior Research Foundation goals, but illustrate feasibility of
expensive clinical research in the context of the NARSAD Grants program.
The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation is committed to spending all contributions for direct research support. Operational expenses are generously underwritten by two family foundations. Administrative cost is small—reviewers are Scientific Council members and volunteer their time; therefore, no feedback can be provided.

Endoscopic Research Awards
Submission Deadline: January 31, 2014 at 5pm CST.
ASGE Endoscopic Research Awards are offered to physicians for projects in basic, translational and clinical endoscopic research. The ASGE is particularly interested in endoscopic research pertaining to colorectal cancer, Barrett's esophagus, endoscopy training/credentialing/simulation, endoscopic issues specific to under-represented minorities (defined as women and individuals of diverse ethnic/cultural backgrounds), measuring/improving quality and efficiency in endoscopy, endoscope reprocessing and infection control (especially vacuum canisters), endoscopy/anesthesia monitoring and preparation (especially CO2 monitoring), comparative effectiveness with competing technologies/therapies, NOTES, novel endoscopic treatments for obesity, endoscopic ultrasound, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), and other endoscopically-guided imaging/intervention. The research committee will consider funding "seed" projects if there is an explicit outline for subsequent projects, and their funding plan (e.g. NIH, VA Merit), based on the preliminary data generated by the proposed pilot.
To foster research in routine and advanced gastrointestinal endoscopy.
Candidate must be an ASGE member (ASGE membership at the time of application is a requirement for eligibility for grants and awards), be an MD (or have equivalent degree), and be currently practicing in a gastrointestinal endoscopy-related academic institution or private practice setting in North America (international applications will be considered as described below). Candidates who are delinquent on prior ASGE research grant progress reports are not eligible for future ASGE funding. If the candidate is a trainee, there must be a letter from the Division Chief confirming the trainee's ongoing appointment at the institution for the duration of the grant, and their position title, and/or a contingency plan.
Grants may be requested for up to $75,000 in total funding, and spread over two years of study. Note: If the application is not selected for the Quality in Endoscopy Research Award, it will still be considered for an Endoscopic Research Award.
Requests for funding "seed" projects that will lead to further research, as well as larger requests for definitive clinical trials will be considered. In order to maximize the funds available for research, money for travel to meetings will not be provided, nor will funding be provided for indirect costs.
Grants are awarded based on the scientific merit of the proposal and assessment of the investigator's ability to complete the project (supportive environment, experience, training, availability of patients and other resources needed). The proposed research project must be approved by the ASGE Research Committee and should also be of such quality as to lead to presentation at Digestive Disease Week® and subsequent full publication. One objective of these ASGE awards is the eventual submission of larger research funding requests, including federal funding, and proposals with such potential will be given priority.
ASGE International Members are eligible to apply for an Endoscopic Research Award (Current ASGE membership is a requirement of eligibility for grants and awards). The ASGE Research Committee will consider funding one international project for up to $75,000. The project justification should explain the relevance of the project to the ASGE membership, and should explain if there are unique reasons why an international location for the project might be more feasible than in North America. All other standards listed above will apply to international applicants. Please contact email@example.com or Liz O'Keefe at 630.570.5623 for more information on eligibility.
