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.

Deadlines

1 June 2019
1 January 2020
1 June 2020
1 January 2021

- 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.

Process:
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 grants@curealz.org.

The Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI): NDCN Collaborative Pairs Pilot Project Awards


The CZI invites applications for a new RFA for collaborative pilot projects (Neurodegeneration Challenge Network Collaborative Pairs Pilot Project Awards) to support pairs of investigators and their teams to explore innovative, interdisciplinary approaches for addressing key challenges in the biology of neurodegenerative diseases.

Awards are $150,000 in total costs per pair for 18-month pilot awards (Phase 1).

Successful pilots will be eligible to apply for additional four-year project development grants (Phase 2): grant award of $400,000 total costs/year/pair for four years ($1.6 million total). Phase 1 and Phase 2: a total of $1.75 million over five-and-a-half years for the entirety of the project.

Collaborative Pairs teams will benefit from the support and resources of the CZI Neurodegeneration Challenge Network.

Deadlines:

Applications due: January 14, 2020 by 5 pm PT

Earliest notification of decisions (subject to change): April 2020

Earliest start date of award period (subject to change): June 1, 2020

Overview:

The CZI Neurodegeneration Challenge Network has three key goals:

(1) To make fundamental advances toward understanding neurodegeneration;

(2) To bring new ideas and talent to the field of neurodegeneration; and

(3) To encourage and experiment with a new interdisciplinary, collaborative, and open science research model involving scientists, clinicians, and engineers.

  • We will be looking for collaborations that bring together complementary approaches expertise. In particular, we strongly encourage applications from collaborations involving clinicians, as well as pairs that bring together researchers from different fields, for instance: connecting experimental biologists and computational biologists, or bridging between different disciplines such as immunology, cell biology, neuroscience, biochemistry, stem cell biology, and bioengineering.
  • The scope of these collaborations should focus on foundational and mechanistic science (as opposed to translational and clinical work). However, successful projects should be grounded in human biology and disease pathology, with the longer-term goal of opening new directions for other translational and clinical efforts.
  • While this is not explicitly a tool/technology-focused RFA, we encourage applications with a tool and technology focus.
  • Each Collaborative Pair must include at least one early- or mid-career investigator, and at least half of the awards will be specifically reserved for Collaborative Pairs that include at least one early-career investigator:

   -Early-career investigators: individuals who have been in their faculty role for zero to six years at the time of application, i.e. have started their first independent position between January 2014 and January 2020.

   - A mid-career investigator: in their faculty role for more than six years but not more than 10 years at the time of application, i.e. have started a first independent position between January 2010 and January 2014.

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.
