The Sol Goldman Pancreatic Cancer Research Center at Johns Hopkins is pleased to announce that funding is available for a limited number of novel developmental research programs (pilot projects) in the study of adenocarcinoma of the pancreas. This program funds important new pilot projects with promising translational potential that do not have sufficient data for an independently funded NIH grant. Projects of high priority should focus on new research directions, explore innovative ideas, test unconventional, but potentially important, new hypotheses, or ascertain the feasibility of new research approaches. Applications are due Friday, September 7, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. and application instructions may be found at: http://pilotprojects.onc.jhmi.edu
The Fondation Leducq, a French non-profit organization
dedicated to promoting international research in cardiovascular and
neurovascular disease, is issuing a call for applications for its two
major grant programs, the Transatlantic Networks of Excellence
and the Career Development Award.
The National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) Therapeutics for Rare and Neglected Diseases (TRND) program performs preclinical and early clinical development of new drugs for rare and neglected diseases, and develops new technologies and paradigms to improve the efficiency of therapeutic development for these diseases. TRND is establishing collaborations with researchers in the public and private sectors to together "de-risk" Rare and Neglected disease drug development projects by accomplishing lead optimization through an FDA Investigational New Drug (IND) application and, when needed, proof-of-concept human studies.
The TRND program will partner with academic laboratories, not-for-profit organizations, and for-profit companies. Foreign organizations may also apply. Applications are made through the online grants management website, ProposalCentral (https://proposalcentral.altum.com/). Submitted research applications will be reviewed for scientific merit and technical feasibility, as well as program balance and availability of resources. Successful applicants will collaborate with TRND to create and implement a therapeutic development project plan. Note this is not a grant or contract program; no extramural funding will be provided.
For more information about the TRND program, including deadlines for current or upcoming opportunities, please visit the TRND webpage at http://trnd.nih.gov.
The application deadline for the current cycle of the program is September 30, 2012.
