Consistent with the mission of the FY17 PRP to support research to understand, prevent, diagnose, and treat Parkinson’s disease in patients, including Service members and Veterans, investigators are required to address at least one of the following FY17 PRP Focus Areas:
  1. Mechanisms of neuroplasticity in the Parkinson’s disease brain.
  2. Studies to identify gene-environment interactions in Parkinson’s disease cohorts (applications addressing this focus area have an additional submission requirement; please see RFP.
  3. Pathophysiological implications of tau protein in Parkinson’s disease.

Eligibility:

Independent investigators at or above the level of Assistant Professor (or equivalent) are eligible to submit an application as an Initiating or Partnering PI.
Preliminary data to support feasibility are encouraged. Any unpublished, preliminary data provided should originate from the laboratory of the PI or a member(s) of the research team. The preliminary data must support the feasibility of the study.
Partnering PI Option: The Investigator-Initiated Research Award mechanism includes an option for up to three PIs. One PI will be identified as the Initiating PI and will be responsible for the majority of the administrative tasks associated with application submission. The other PI(s) (maximum of two) will be identified as a Partnering PI(s). Initiating and Partnering PIs each have different submission requirements, please see full RFP.
Available Funding:
  • Single PI:  The anticipated total costs budgeted for the entire period of performance for an FY17 PRP IIRA will not exceed $1M.  The maximum period of performance is three (3) years.
  • Multi PI: The anticipated total costs budgeted for the entire period of performance for an FY17 PRP IIRA will not exceed $2.5M. The maximum period of performance is four (4) years.

SFARI Explorer Awards

Sponsor:

Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI)

Deadline:

Applications are considered on a rolling basis, with a response time as early as 30 days.

Summary:

This award program is designed to enhance our existing support of autism research by providing timely resources to enable focused experiments highly relevant to our mission. A deeper understanding of the mechanisms underlying autism spectrum disorders or potential therapeutic approaches will require investigation at multiple levels, including but not limited to studies focused on gene discovery, molecular mechanisms, circuits, anatomy, and cognition and behavior. We will consider proposals at all of these levels.

Explorer Awards are intended to provide resources to support exploratory experiments that will strengthen hypotheses and lead to the formulation of competitive applications for subsequent larger-scale funding by SFARI or other organizations. Innovative, high-risk/high-impact proposals are encouraged. We especially encourage applications from investigators who are new to the field of autism, but who have expertise that could be brought to bear on this complex disorder.

Eligibility:

All applicants and key collaborators must hold a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree and have a faculty position or the equivalent at a college, university, medical school or other research facility. Applications may be submitted by domestic and foreign nonprofit organizations; public and private institutions, such as colleges, universities, hospitals, laboratories, units of state and local government; and eligible agencies of the federal government. There are no citizenship or country requirements.

Available Funding:

The maximum budget is $70,000, including indirect costs for one (1) year, non-renewable.

The Office of Naval Research (ONR) is interested in receiving proposals for its Young Investigator Program (YIP). ONR’s Young Investigator Program (YIP) seeks to identify and support academic scientists and engineers who are in their first or second full-time tenure-track or tenure-trackequivalent academic appointment, have begun their first appointment on or after 31 December 2012, and who show exceptional promise for doing creative research. The objectives of this program are to attract outstanding faculty members of Institutions of Higher Education (hereafter also called “universities”) to the Department of the Navy’s Science and Technology (S&T) research program, to support their research, and to encourage their teaching and research careers.

Proposals addressing research areas (as described in the ONR Science and Technology Department section of ONR’s website at www.onr.navy.mil) which are of interest to ONR program officers will be considered. Contact information for each division (a subgroup of an S&T Department) is also listed within the S&T section of the website.

Eligibility:

The Principal Investigator of a proposal must be a U.S. citizen, national, or permanent resident (on the date proposals are due), holding a first or second full-time tenure-track or tenure-track-equivalentfaculty position at that university, and has begun her/his first full-time appointment on or after 31 December 2012.

Available Funding:

Applicants may request up to $170,000 per year for three (3) years. (Additional funds for capital equipment which enhances the Young Investigator’s proposed research may be requested.)

SFARI Bridge to Independence Award Request for Applications

Sponsor:

Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI)

Deadline:

August 7, 2017

Summary:

The Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative (SFARI) seeks to improve the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of autism spectrum disorders by funding innovative research of the highest quality and relevance.  In order to sustain this level of scientific excellence in future years, SFARI is extending our support to promising early-career investigators.

Grants awarded through the Bridge to Independence Award program are intended to invest in the next generation of top autism investigators by identifying talented early-career scientists interested in autism research and facilitating their transition to an independent research career. This request for applications (RFA) is aimed at senior postdoctoral fellows who intend to seek tenure-track faculty positions during the 2017–18 academic year. Successful applicants will be notified that they are finalists in the Bridge to Independence Award program and will have one year to submit an approval application, which includes confirmation of a tenure-track professorship at a U.S. academic institution, review of the institution’s research environment and resources, and institutional signoff.

Eligibility:

  • Applicants must hold a Ph.D., M.D. or equivalent degree
  • Applicants must have fewer than six (6) years of postdoctoral or otherwise mentored training.
  • Applicants must be currently in non-independent, mentored, training positions, as recognized by their institution. The following guidelines should be used to distinguish independent from non-independent positions (modified from NIH’s K99/R00 Program Announcement eligibility section): Evidence for non-independence may include:
  • The applicant’s research is entirely funded by another investigator’s grants.
  • The applicant’s research is conducted entirely in another investigator’s assigned space.
  • According to institutional policy, the applicant is not allowed to submit an application for an NIH research grant (e.g., R01) or SFARI grant (e.g, Explorer, Pilot, Research, and Targeted awards.)
  • Applicants must be actively seeking a tenure-track position at a U.S. institution of higher education during 2017-18 academic year.
  • Applicants are not eligible if they are recipients of other career development awards with similar budgetary scope as the SFARI Bridge to Independence award. These include, but are not limited to:
    • NIH K99/R00 (please note that other K awardees may be eligible, e.g., K01 and K08)
    • Burroughs-Wellcome Fund Career Award for Medical Scientists
    • American Academy of Neurology Career Development Award
    • Howard Hughes Medical Institute Hanna H. Gray fellowship

You are strongly encouraged to contact SFARI prior to grant submission if you believe your career development award is comparable to the BTI award but is not listed above.

  • Applicants must not have accepted a formal offer for a tenure-track faculty position.
  • There are no citizenship requirements.

Available Funding:

The principal investigator (PI) will receive research support at a fixed rate of $150,000 per year, including 20 percent for indirect costs (see SFARI policies), for up to three (3) years. Funds may not be used toward the PI’s salary but may provide salary support for other laboratory personnel. Institutional start-up packages may not be reduced because of SFARI funding.
