Federal Funding agencies
Innovative Approaches or Technologies to Investigate Regional, Structural and Functional Heterogeneity of CNS Small Blood and Lymphatic Vessels (R01) -NIH
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will solicit research projects focused on the development of new technology and tools, or novel mechanistic studies, or a combination of mechanistic and technology development studies specific to central nervous system (CNS, which includes retina) small blood and lymphatic vessels in health and disease, across the life span. The program aims at facilitating the development of tools and technology to image, profile and map CNS small blood and lymphatic vessels. Additional goals are to elucidate the mechanisms underlying CNS small blood and lymphatic vessels structural and functional heterogeneity, differential susceptibility to injury, role in disease and repair processes, and their responses to therapies. Preclinical studies using in vitro and/or animal models specific to CNS small blood and lymphatic vessels alone or in combination with pilot human studies are appropriate for this FOA.
Closing dates: Dec11, 2017, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Human Studies of Target Identification, Biomarkers and Disease Mechanisms Specific to CNS Small Blood and Lymphatic Vessels (R01) -NIH
This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will solicit research projects to facilitate the development and translation of tools and technology for non-invasive imaging and profiling of human central nervous system (CNS, including retina) small blood and lymphatic vessels; to investigate their role in CNS physiology, disease, repair processes, and responses to therapy using novel approaches. Applications can be focused on the development of new technology and tools, novel target or biomarker identification and validation studies, or a combination of mechanistic and technology development studies specific to human CNS small blood and lymphatic vessels in health and disease, across the life span.
Closing dates: Dec 11, 2017, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
Angelman syndrome call for proposals — Angelman Syndrome Foundation
The Angelman Syndrome Foundation invites proposals for its research on Angelman syndrome grants. These support research in preclinical, translational and clinical areas that investigate all aspects of Angelman syndrome.
Priority will be given to pilot projects that test new ideas on the pathogenesis and therapy of the syndrome. Studies related to communication, behavioural issues and identification of issues and treatments that impact the daily lives of people with the disease and their families are of particular interest.
Closing dates: Applications due on every Oct 15 and April 15.
Alzheimer's Disease Research Grants— BrightFocus Foundation
The standard award provides significant funding for researchers who have already generated some amount of preliminary data, but are often required to demonstrate additional, significant progress before they can apply to governmental or industrial funding agencies.
Closing date: Oct 18, 2017 11:59 p.m. EST (Washington, D.C.)
