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.

The Focused Ultrasound Foundation


We fund high risk or clinically based investigator-initiated projects through the External Awards Program. We also fund projects in high-priority applications of FUS through the Brain Program, Cancer Immunotherapy Program, and Veterinary Program, including both invited and investigator-initiated projects.

Brain program: It is the ultimate goal of the Foundation's Brain Program to see focused ultrasound become a standard of care for the treatment of a range of neurological disorders, including movement disorders, brain tumors, epilepsy and stroke.


The External Awards Program provides funding for investigator-initiated clinical, preclinical, and early-stage research projects through a competitive peer-reviewed application process.


The program has two tracks:

* The Pre-Clinical Track is geared primarily towards preclinical studies and research projects that target a particular clinical indication or organ. It is meant to fund research that could lead the way to a new reimbursable clinical application for image-guided FUS within five to seven years.


*The High-Risk Track is intended for early-stage, high-risk, proof-of-concept research that, if successful, could have a profound impact on the field of focused ultrasound and that could change the way many conditions are treated.


**Additionally, the External Awards Program accepts abstracts for Clinical Trial funding requests. The abstract form for Clinical Trials is linked in the Materials section below. Funding for clinical trials is not limited to $100,000 and one year.


Funding: one-year awards totaling approximately $100,000

The Pre-Clinical Track typically does not fund large capital purchases, cannot fund overhead or institutional expenses, and will not fund the development of new focused ultrasound equipment


Application Process

Step 1: A one-page Research Abstract must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the program’s quarterly application deadlines (Feb. 1, May 1, Aug. 1, and Nov. 1).

Step 2: The Foundation will invite full Research Proposals from authors of approved Research Abstracts.

Funding decisions are returned to the applicant approximately three months after their application deadline.

Parkinson's Foundation: Awards for Independent Investigators

Impact Awards:
The Parkinson's Foundation Impact Awards are designed for researchers both established and new to the field of PD (both young investigators and those from outside the field). Projects should be "outside the box" with the goal of bringing new light to the biology of Parkinson's, or testing a truly novel therapeutic idea. Projects should be for the best ideas that are unlikely to be funded through more traditional funding mechanisms.

Level of Support
Awards are up to a maximum $150,000 for approximately 1 year. Up to 10% ($15,000) of the total award may be used towards indirect costs. Salary support is permitted but for no more than 40% of the recipient's salary and capped at $50,000.

This award is open to all scientists with a PhD or MD, regardless of nationality or location. All career levels of independent investigators are welcome to apply.
All applications must demonstrate a significant research focus and impact on PD.

Application Instructions and Deadlines
There will be 3 cycles of this award each year. Letters of Intent (LOI) will be reviewed, and proposals deemed meritorious and of interest will be invited for a full application, which will be due within 6-8 weeks of the LOI decision. A detailed budget is required with the full application. Please see our deadlines page for current deadlines.

Opens Monday, September 9, 2019; award notification typically 6-8 weeks after full application; award starts 30 days after notification

Cycle 1: LOI Due: Monday October 14, 2019, Full Application Due: Monday, January 6, 2020
Cycle 2: LOI Due: Monday December 2, 2019, Full Application Due: Monday, March 2, 2020
Cycle 3: LOI Due: Monday February 3, 2020, Full Application Due: Monday, May 4, 2020

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund


Current areas of investigation that Cure Alzheimer’s Fund will support include:
-Alzheimer’s Genome Project and Functional Genomics
-Genes to Therapies™/Stem Cell Drug Screening: Translational studies investigating established and newly confirmed AD genes
-Identification: Early detection via biomarkers, imaging, etc.
-Immune System Structures and Processes: Role of inflammation and other responses in Alzheimer’s
-Interaction of the Microbiome with Alzheimer’s
-Pathological Pathways & Systems
-Therapeutic Strategies and Drug Discovery
- Whole Genome Sequencing and Epigenetics
- Other: Novel approaches, targets, or therapies aligned with the Cure Alzheimer’s Fund mission

CureAlz provides funding to not-for-profit institutions around the world.

Most grants provided by Cure Alzheimer’s Fund originate as referrals from already funded investigators or as solicitations by CureAlz. However, we welcome letters of inquiry from any qualified scientist. We will not consider unsolicited proposals. Letters of inquiry and proposals are accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis; there is no set timeline for applications, funding decisions, or funding initiation.

Letters of inquiry should be no more than one to two pages in length and should include: the hypothesis to be pursued; the rationale for doing so; a high-level description of how the scientific aims would be pursued; and sufficient information to demonstrate the scientist’s ability to do so. CureAlz will respond to all letters of inquiry.

CureAlz will request full proposals from scientists whose letters of inquiry align with CureAlz’s mission, scientific standards, and funding priorities. We will send specific information about proposal parameters and requirements with our proposal request. Out of respect for applicants’ time, our goal is to request proposals only where there is a high likelihood of funding. As a matter of policy, CureAlz does not provide its reasons for declining to request or fund a proposal.

Communications regarding Cure Alzheimer’s Fund applications and support should be sent to

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.
