The Michael J. Fox Foundation : Imaging Biomarkers to Track Disease Progression and Therapeutic Efficacy

The Michael J. Fox Foundation will award one- to three-year grants to develop imaging markers for use in disease-modifying clinical trials
Applications must focus on developing robust and precise imaging markers.

• Priority targets for this program are alpha-synuclein and neuroinflammation, but applications may focus on other promising therapeutic targets.
• Imaging modalities can include PET, SPECT and MRI.
• Projects should aim to develop novel imaging biomarkers as opposed to prospectively collecting data using existing technologies. Prospective data collection is appropriate only if a novel imaging technique or tracer is being tested. Novel data analysis techniques may be proposed but should utilize existing data sets.
• Examples of projects that are appropriate for this program include development of novel PET or SPECT tracers, early validation of new tracers, and development and validation of novel MRI techniques.

Deadlines :
Pre-Proposals Due: April 19, 2019, 5 p.m. ET
Full Proposal Invitations: Week of June 10, 2019
Full Proposals Due (by invite only): July 19, 2019, 5 p.m. ET

Multiple Sclerosis International Federation «McDonald Fellowship»

The McDonald Fellowship enables young researchers from emerging countries to work in a research institution outside of their own country.

The fellowship consists of a two-year grant, around £30,000 GBP per year, to cover travel and living costs, and an additional contribution of £2,000 GBP per year to the host institution.

Deadline: 21July 2019

More information:

All candidates must:

Be under 35 at the time of application
Be educated to post graduate level in an area relevant to multiple sclerosis (MS)
Be citizens of a low- or middle-income country (all countries with a low, lower middle or upper middle income as defined by the World Bank)
Focus their research in an area relevant to MS
Candidates must also be in one of the following situations:

Working or studying in a low- or middle-income country (all countries with a low, lower middle or upper middle income as defined by the World Bank) at the time of nomination
Working or studying in another country on a project which started within the six months prior to nomination
Studying in another country on a project supported by an MS International Federation grant
Candidates are expected to return to their own countries at the end of the study period where they will contribute to advancing care and research in MS.

The fellowship may also be used as a supplement for work related to MS by a candidate who has been accepted for training in a recognised institute (within the six months prior to nomination) but who doesn’t have enough money to cover the total cost.

National Science Fondation (NSF) Call: Accelerating Research through International Network-to-Network Collaborations (AccelNet)


The goals of the Accelerating Research through International Network-to-Network Collaborations (AccelNet) program are to accelerate the process of scientific discovery and prepare the next generation of U.S. researchers for multiteam international collaborations.

This new funding opportunity is designed to foster networks of networks, creating links between multiple networks that cross international boundaries, rather than creating a single new network.

European Brain Research Area consortium (EBRA): Call for clusters

The EBRA consortium is launching a Call for Clusters to promote co-operation and exchange between brain research projects and networks, and thus enable or enhance international collaboration and the emergence of development of clusters in all areas of brain research.

A cluster is understood as an association of research projects that can be directed towards basic research, clinical research and/or methodological approaches under a common topic, and disease and/or thematic area.

The individual members of a cluster application should be complementary.

The cluster formation should lead to a step-wise change in the landscape of that research area and should demonstrate a clear added-value in the collaboration/cooperation over individual projects including, but not limited to, sharing of resources (models, databases, diagnostics etc.), harmonisation of data, sharing of specific know-how and/or innovative technologies, etc.

The EBRA call for cluster is an open call until 1 January 2021.
