Research grants- The Swedish Fund for Research Without Animal Experiments

The Swedish Fund for Research Without Animal Experiments invites applications for its research grants. These support research projects that promote the development of new methods and new knowledge in toxicology, medical research, biological production and other areas aimed at replacing animal experiments. Projects that promote more effective utilisation of existing alternative methods can also be supported, such as validation of animal-free methods, and projects to reduce animal use in education or disseminate knowledge about alternative methods. The research projects can be aimed at replacing animal experiments that occur either nationally or internationally. The projects must be performed in Sweden or include Swedish participants. Only new projects can receive grants.

European grants

Research grants - Cure Parkinson’s Trust

The Cure Parkinson’s Trust research grants support laboratory or clinical research projects that have the potential to advance knowledge that might lead to a cure for Parkinson’s disease, or represent a substantial advance in treatment. Preference is given to projects that show the potential to delay, slow, stop, reverse or prevent the progression of Parkinson's disease and, in relation to preclinical research, preference is given to projects that are likely to lead to clinical translation within five years. Grants are usually worth between £50,000 to £250,000 each over a period of one to three years.

Quest for cures: collaborative discovery teams - Brain Tumour Charity

The Brain Tumour Charity invites letters of intent for its collaborative discovery teams grants. These aim to foster a collaborative research process, strengthen ties between basic and clinical research and promote transformational brain tumour research advances with the potential for rapid clinical translation. The teams should seek innovative approaches to address the critical questions that could present a paradigm shift for brain tumour research or use unexplored paths to allow for new discoveries to be made. Projects should be preclinical studies. The call is open to international researchers, but applications including a UK collaborator will be looked on favourably. Funding is worth £1.5 million per programme over five years.

US grants

Immune System Engineering For Targeted Tolerance in Type 1 Diabetes (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed): NIH

Type 1 diabetes (T1D) results in part from the autoimmune-mediated dysfunction or destruction of insulin-producing pancreatic beta cells. This funding opportunity is for projects that seek to discover ways to change the course of the disease by directly establishing tolerance. Immune responses could be engineered for tolerance induction through the manipulation of antigens, cells, or cellular microenvironments. Collaborations between T1D experts and investigators from other fields, including (but not limited to) cancer immunology and biomaterials engineering, are especially encouraged.
Closing dates: Nov 6, 2018 (Letter of Intent), Dec 6, 2018, by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
