Progeria Research Foundation Research Grants
Grants are considered twice per year, usually at the Board of Directors' June and December meetings, with applications due six weeks prior.
The next grant application is due May 4th, 2012, for consideration at the Board of Directors' June 2012 meeting.
Proposals will be accepted in three categories of differing type, funding levels and length of time:
Innovator Awards: 2-year awards of up to $75,000 per year. The aim of the Innovator Award is to allow an investigator to embark on new lines of investigation, and to produce enough preliminary data to be competitive for longer-term funding by NIH and/or other agencies.
Established Investigator Awards: for senior investigators established either in the field of Progeria or a field that can be directly applied to Progeria. These grants are for up to 3 years and up to $100,000 per year.
Specialty Awards: for smaller, more technology-driven projects, e.g., sequencing, screening potential drugs, obtaining cell lines (including IPSCs,) and preparation of antibodies. Funding amounts and lengths are flexible.
