to fund career development and developmental research programs (pilot
New Ideas Encouraged!
The "Era of Hope Scholar Awards" and
"Postdoctoral Fellowship Awards" Program Announcements are
open for submissions. The following funding opportunity information
may interest newer faculty and postdoctoral researchers in bio-life,
basic, bio-engineering, epidemiology, behavioral, and social scientists
considering innovative research in breast cancer research.
A maximum of $300,000 ($100,000 per year)
for direct costs over a 3 year maximum performance period, plus indirect
costs as appropriate, is offered. The CDMRP expects to allot approximately
$8M of the $150M FY09 BCRP appropriation to fund approximately 25 Postdoctoral
Fellowship applicants, depending on the quality and number of proposals
The Program's short-term goal is to support the most outstanding science and expand the pool of scientists whose research explores the basic biology of eating disorders. The long-term goal is to improve the lives of patients suffering from these conditions.
Examples of funding areas include but are not limited to molecular genetic analysis of relevant neural circuit assembly and function; animal models created by genetically altering neural circuits; testing of new chemical entities that might be used in animal models as exploratory treatments; and brain imaging approaches that identify neurochemical pathways in patients with these disorders.
Two-year awards of $400,000 USD ($200,000
per year inclusive of 10% indirect costs) and one-year pilot studies
of up to $150,000 USD (inclusive of 10% indirect costs) will be made.
The application deadline is December 8, 2009. For complete details
