NOW ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS:
NephCure Kidney International-NEPTUNE Ancillary Studies Grant Program
NephCure announces the fifth call for applications for its scientific grant program to support investigator-initiated studies that employ NEPTUNE resources to advance clinical and translational research in glomerular disease. The program is open to all scientists, whether a participant in the NEPTUNE Consortium or not. Proposed projects can include but are not limited to those that can be used to generate feasibility data to support advancement of promising future studies and projects to develop clinical assays, or protocols, or early phase clinical trials. NephCure will award up to $150,000 total cost per project after a competitive process to select the most meritorious project.
To protect the integrity of the overall NEPTUNE study, prioritize the utilization of its resources for scientific advancement, ensure regulatory compliance and monitor participant burden, ancillary studies must be reviewed and approved by the NEPTUNE Ancillary Study Review Committee (ARC) and the Steering Committee (SC) before submission of a proposal for funding from NephCure.
NephCure Kidney International-CureGN Pilot Project Grant Program
NephCure announces the second call for applications for a research grant program to support investigator-initiated studies that employ CureGN resources to advance clinical and translational research in glomerular disease. The program is open to all scientists, including those within and outside of the CureGN Consortium. Proposed projects are limited to those that can be used to generate feasibility data to support additional research aimed toward advancing diagnosis, treatment or cure of human glomerular disease. NephCure will provide funding of up to $50,000 direct cost for two projects after a competitive process to select the most meritorious projects.
NOTE: In any one calendar year, applicants can apply for funding to either the NephCure-Neptune or NephCure-CureGN program but cannot apply to both programs simultaneously.
Opportunities Outside of NephCure Kidney International:
Department of Defense: Peer-Reviewed Medical Research Program
The Peer Reviewed Medical Research Program (PRMRP), established in fiscal year 1999 (FY99), has supported research across the full range of science and medicine, with an underlying goal of enhancing the health and well-being of military Service members, Veterans, retirees, and their family members. Program oversight is provided by a programmatic panel with joint military service and interagency representation.
Only research studies that focus on a condition listed as eligible for study under the PRMRP may apply for this funding opportunity. NephCure has successfully advocated to include FSGS on the list of conditions eligible for study. NephCure encourages FSGS researchers to benefit from this funding opportunity.
