Call for Early Career Investigator Travel Fellowship Applications: Companion Diagnostics: From Biomarker Identification to Market Entry
April 28 - 29, 2014 The New York Academy of Sciences
Presented by The New York Academy of Sciences
The recent growth in complex biological data has enabled a major paradigm shift in healthcare away from "one-size-fits-all" approaches towards customized, patient-tailored therapies. Biomarker-based companion diagnostics (CDx), designed to identify responsive patient sub-populations or those likely to experience adverse drug effects, lie at the heart of this personalized, precision medicine movement.
This 2-day conference will provide a neutral forum for international scientists and clinicians from academia, industry, and government — as well as healthcare policy makers, regulatory experts, insurance sector representatives, and other stakeholders — to discuss research, financial, and regulatory strategies that will facilitate CDx development and integration into clinical care. Presentations will illustrate successes and failures based on case studies; evaluate emerging applications of technologies such as epigenetics, bioinformatics, and nanotechnology; analyze diverse therapeutic target areas beyond cancer including inflammatory, infectious, cardiovascular, metabolic, and neurodegenerative diseases; recognize regulatory hurdles; and formulate solutions to better improve public health with CDx and personalized medicine.
The deadline for submission of applications is Friday, March 14, 2014.
Applications are invited from qualified early career investigators. For detailed information on eligibility and application instructions, please send an email to CDx2014@nyas.org with the words "Fellowship Information" in the subject line. There is no need to type a message; instructions will be forwarded automatically. Please call 212.298.8618 with any questions.

Call for Applications: Heiser Program for Research in Leprosy 2014
Deadline for research grant applications: March 20, 2014
In accordance with Dr. Heiser’s instructions, grant funds must be used, not for treatment of patients, but for basic laboratory research directed at a better understanding of leprosy and its bacterial agent. The ultimate aim is to find measures for the prevention and cure of leprosy that will serve to bring the disease under control. Research grants that support the training efforts of laboratories involved in research on leprosy, or that provide funds for the initiation of new leprosy research projects in the field will be awarded.
Please note that in 2014 the Heiser Program is only funding leprosy research and will not support research or fellowships on tuberculosis.
Research Grants in Leprosy
To provide support to basic scientists to allow them to contribute to the global goal of true leprosy elimination, in particular, the application of new and available tools toward diagnosis and blocking transmission, but also to: (1) investigate mechanisms of nerve damage and reactions; (2) develop more effective chemoprophylaxis, immunoprophylaxis, and rapid bactericidal drugs to treat active disease; and (3) understand the organism, its origins, its pathogenicity, and immunological spectrum the bacilli can induce. Other areas of importance are the use of the genome of M. leprae to identify new drug targets and immunologically important molecules.
Please note, the Heiser Program Scientific advisory committee (with contributions from the leprosy research community) is reviewing major topics for future support that focus on changing priorities toward a greater control of global leprosy (many of them identified at the recent International Leprosy Congress). In 2015 multi-institutional/investigator applications may be sought in accordance with those identified topics. Depending on selection of new priorities, the Scientific Advisory Committee of the Heiser Program may suspend investigator initiated proposals after 2014.
Type of Research Grants Available in 2014
Two year research grants of up to $70,000: a maximum of $35,000 per year.
Applications for leprosy research grants should come from laboratories that have experience in leprosy research and have demonstrable ongoing, productive interactions with corresponding laboratories in endemic regions and/or leprosy field sites/workers.
