Neuroscience Nursing Foundation 2013 Research Grants for American Association of Neuroscience Nurse Members
Deadline for application is August 16. There are two categories of grants, both funded to NNF by the Integra Foundation. The first, the NEW INVESTIGATOR grant is for up to $10,000. The NEW INVESTIGATOR grants are designed to provide funding to a promising new AANN investigator to support foundational work for significant research that will have the potential to change the impact of neuroscience nursing on patient care and patient outcomes. The NEW INVESTIGATOR will be a neuroscience nurse who has never received any external funding.
Separate from the $10,000 research grants, there is now an additional four grants available for a maximum of up to or around $2,500. The purpose of these grants is to help AANN neuroscience nurses implement EVIDENCE BASED changes in their practice setting.
Deadline for both grants August 16, 2013
Any questions can be directed to the NNF Office - p: 509.738.2542 or email: email@example.com.

Call for Proposals: NCL Research Award for Research on Batten Disease
The NCL Foundation provides regulary the NCL research award. The goal is to find a cure against the deadly children's disease Neuronal Ceroid Lipofuscinosis (NCL), also called Batten disease. This metabolic disorder is the most common neurodegenerative disease of childhood and is inevitably fatal. The gradual stages of the suffering are blindness, dementia, epilepsy, loss of speech, paralysis and complete helplessness.
We invite medical and basic science researchers worldwide to submit innovative clinical oriented or translational basic science projects, which can contribute to finding a cure for juvenile NCL.
Scientists from related areas of science including Alzheimer's disease, aging, and other lysosomal storage disorders, are particularly encouraged to apply with the aim to extend the NCL research community in move more efficiently towards a cure for NCL.
NCL Research Award 2013
This year, the NCL Foundation offers for the fifth time the NCL Research Award.
