The New York Stem Cell Foundation
has announced the following 2014 RFAs:

Innovator Awards for Early Career Investigators in Translational Stem Cell Research
The goal of these awards is to support innovative projects with the potential to transform the field of stem cell research and to advance the use of stem cells for the treatment of human disease.

For more information, to download the RFA and to apply, visit: www.nyscf.org/stemcell

Innovator Awards for Early Career Investigators in Neuroscience
The goal of these awards is to support the best young researchers working in fundamental areas of developmental, cellular, cognitive and behavioral neuroscience, broadly interpreted. Proposals need not be related to stem cells.

For more information, to download the RFA and to apply, visit: www.nyscf.org/neuro

Both awards provide $1.5M USD (payable over 5 years) to outstanding young researchers from accredited non-profit research and academic institutions throughout the world (subject to eligibility). The RFAs will close on March 17, 2014 at 5:00pm Eastern.

Please feel free to contact Kristin A. Smith, visit the NYSCF website, or view the Investigator Award FAQs for additional information.

New Therapy - COMMERCIALIZATION GRANTS PROGRAM

The mission of the New Therapy - Commercialization Grants Program is to drive the development of new therapies for epilepsy, accelerating the advancement of research from the laboratory to the patient. Funding is provided to academic and commercial groups worldwide.

The Program seeks to advance the development of new therapies including but not limited to medicines, biologics or devices. All Epilepsy.comproposals must demonstrate a clear path from the lab to the patient and are evaluated with consideration for their potential value to patients, likelihood of successful development including regulatory approval and the timeframe of development.

The Program also encourages 1:1 matching grants to academic and commercial entities to support the commercialization of novel approaches to the treatment of epilepsy. Preference will be given to proposals that already have a commercial partner engaged to assist with development, and to proposals that have committed or matched funding from a sponsoring institution, commercial partner or other third party source.

These grants are awarded only to programs that have progressed beyond the basic science discovery stage. Investigators are strongly advised to have their compounds screened, as appropriate, by the NINDS ASP Program. Investigators are expected to have an established record of achievement in the area. Full intellectual property (IP) rights (composition of matter) are preferred over method of use IP. Clinical programs must have a reasonable protocol and sample size to assure that the results will be meaningful; studies of patients should describe the type of seizure/epilepsy that will be investigated. Device programs should present novel concepts for treatment.

Investigators must submit a Letter of Intent by March 7, 2014 by 11:59 pm ET.
The deadline for receipt of full Grant proposals is April 21, 2014 by 11:59 pm ET. 

Full proposals will be accepted only from Investigators whose Letter of Intent was approved.
