Call for Applications: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Round 13 of Grand Challenges Explorations
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is accepting applications for Round 13 of its Grand Challenges Explorations initiative, which seeks innovative solutions to some of the world’s most pressing global health and development problems. Great ideas come from everywhere, and grants have been awarded for over 900 projects in over 50 countries to date.
Proposals are being accepted through May 6, 2014. Visit www.grandchallenges.org to submit a simple, online, two-page application for the topics listed below.
Topics for Grand Challenges Explorations Round 13:
Measuring Fetal and Infant Brain Development: We seek better assessment tools for cognitive development and gestational age, which are critical for measuring the effectiveness of prevention and treatment strategies targeting children’s healthy growth and development and are appropriate for use in the communities in greatest need. This topic is being undertaken in partnership with Grand Challenges Canada’s Saving Brains initiative.
Integrating Community-Based Interventions: We seek new ideas to leverage an existing mass drug administration platform - for drug distribution efforts for one or more of five specific neglected tropic diseases - and to integrate this platform with another community-valued or community-needed health intervention or agricultural service, with the goal of increasing efficiency and impact.
Inciting Healthy Behaviors: We seek new solutions - targeting individuals, families, communities, health providers, or the health system - that promote health-seeking behaviors and that can make a difference in reducing morbidity and mortality and promoting healthy, productive lives.
Diarrhea and Enteric Dysfunction: We seek new ideas for tools, approaches, and models to support preclinical development of new agents for Acute Secretory Diarrhea and Environmental Enteric Dysfunction. We particularly seek approaches that recapitulate the pathophysiology of impaired gut function as it occurs in our target populations.
Innovations for Building Agricultural Development Programs: We seek new solutions to build effective feedback and accountability systems into agricultural development programs. We are looking for tools or approaches that enable farmers’ voices to be consistently heard in all project phases.
The Gates Foundation and an independent group of reviewers select the most promising proposals, and grants will be awarded within approximately five months from the proposal submission deadline. Initial grants are USD$100,000 each. Projects demonstrating potential will have the opportunity to receive additional funding up to USD$1 million.
Call for Proposals: March of Dimes 2015 Research Program
The online Letter of Intent process must be completed by April 30, 2014.
MOD invites all qualified scientists with faculty appointments or the equivalent, at universities, hospitals and research institutions (not for profit or profit), to submit applications for research grants relevant to our mission. This encompasses basic biological processes governing differentiation and development, genetics and genomics of these processes, clinical studies, reproductive health and environmental toxicology, and social and behavioral studies concerning cognitive and behavioral risks that affect outcomes of pregnancy, the perinatal period, and subsequent child development.
Applications will be directed to one of three committees whose respective foci are:
• Cell Lineage and Differentiation
• Gene Discovery and Translational Medicine
• Social and Behavioral Sciences. This involves family units and includes genes, toxicants, social determinants that adversely affect language or behavior, especially if involving premature infants or children with birth defects.
Applications related to causes of labor and preterm labor leading to prematurity should be directed to the Prematurity Research Initiative (PRI) 2015 Program Request For Proposals.
PROCEDURE TO SUBMIT LETTER OF INTENT
Potential applicants should submit electronically required administrative information and a Letter of Intent to the Senior Vice President for Research and Global Programs via the MOD’s online system at HTTP://RESEARCHGRANTS.MARCHOFDIMES.COM.
