Closing date: 02 Mar 17 (Forecast)

 

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation International

Call for proposals, to investigate the role of the microbiome in type 1 diabetes, and support research that provides insights into developing safe approaches to augment, accelerate or induce robust microbiome-induced immune-regulation in childhood. The call aims to increase understanding of the mechanisms of development of a healthy microbiota and microbiota-induced immune-regulation in health and its alteration in childhood-onset T1D. Areas of interest include:

•perturbed development of the intestinal microbiota in early childhood and its possible contributions to susceptibility to T1D;

•altered intestinal permeability or integrity, and its possible contributions to the susceptibility or pathogenesis;

•the basis of healthy microbiota-induced regulation;

•prevention and therapy.

 

There are two types of grants available: pilot and feasibility grants worth up to USD 110,000 for a period of one year, including 10 per cent indirect costs, and strategic research agreements grants worth up to USD 250,000 per year for up to two years, including 10 per cent indirect costs.

Closing date: 01 March 2017

 

Human Frontiers Science Program (HSFP) Program Grants

Program Grants are meant to allow teams of independent researchers to develop new lines of research through the collaboration. Priority will be given to new, innovative research projects for which preliminary results might not necessarily be available. Applications including independent
investigators early in their careers are encouraged.  Teams will receive up to $450,000 per year for the whole team and must be part of a wider international team.

Letter of Intent to be submitted by March 20th 2017.
