The program’s goals are to provide start-up money for new and innovative research projects that have the potential to become competitive for an NIH grant or other external funding sources, and to open future opportunities for research, collaboration and scientific advancement.
The W.M. Keck Foundation Research Program seeks to benefit humanity by supporting projects in two areas: (1) medical research and (2) science and engineering research.
The Bridge to Success for Early Career Investigators awards are designed to provide ‘bridge’ funding to promising early-career sleep scientists who have applied for a career development award such as a K-award grant from the NIH, a Career Development Award from the VA, or an equivalent career development grant from another federal or non-federal entity.
Pfizer-Upjohn seeks to support innovative outreach programs for patients with early signs of up to two chronic conditions (such as hypertension or depression) who are middle aged (35-64 years of age) and/or older adults (age 65 years and up). Programs would aim to better understand how to engage these individuals in ongoing patient care.
Some evidence suggests that Alzheimer’s may be triggered or driven by an infectious agent or microbial mechanism. Determined to advance science regarding this possible connection, the IDSA Foundation is offering up to five one-time, $100,000 grants to researchers working to identify a microbial link to Alzheimer’s disease.
Discovery Research Grants are awarded to independent, established investigators to accelerate progress toward understanding and treating neuromuscular disease and total $100,000 per year for one to
The program seeks to advance and enlarge the range of technologies available to the neurosciences. It does not support research based primarily on existing techniques.
The Foundation’s fundamental mission is to understand the biology underlying the psychiatric disease anorexia nervosa, with the goal of accelerating progress towards prevention and treatment. They are seeking proposals to conduct research that directly investigates the underlying biology of anorexia nervosa, and the questions of how and why it develops and persists.
The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF), in collaboration with longtime partner the Edmond J. Safra Foundation, introduced The Edmond J. Safra Fellowship in Movement Disorders. By funding academic centers to train new movement disorder clinician-researchers, this program aims to develop a network of highly trained specialists to be the next generation of leaders in Parkinson’s research and clinical care.
The McKnight Endowment Fund for Neuroscience supports innovative research designed to bring science closer to the day when diseases of the brain and behavior can be accurately diagnosed, prevented, and treated.
