Special Announcements

The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Office of Orphan Products Development (OOPD) announces the availabilty of funds for fiscal years (FY) 2023 - FY 2025 to support clinical trials for rare diseases and conditions. 

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement is to fund clinical trials of products evaluating efficacy and/or safety to address unmet needs in rare diseases or conditions, increasing the number of approved treatments for rare diseases.

Online applications are due Oct. 25 for FY2023 funding.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has released a solicitation for applications for the Graduate Research Fellowship Program (GRFP). 

The GRFP program recognizes and supports outstanding graduate students who are pursuing full-time research-based master's and doctoral degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or in STEM education. 

The fellowship will provide three years of support over a five-year fellowship period for the graduate education of individuals who have demonstrated their potential for significant research achievements in STEM or STEM education. 

Due Date: Oct. 17 to Oct. 21, 2022 (depending on topic)

The Strategic Infrastructure for Research Committee (SIRC) is announcing a new pilot grant program - “Across the Finish Line” (AFL) grants - that are designed to help both junior faculty and established faculty moving into a new area of investigation. 

Funds will be used to generate pilot data that can be leveraged into a new R01-type grant submission (or re-submission). Initially, grants will be reviewed by the standing SIRC review committee. 

Priority will be given both to investigators who are perceived to have a high likelihood of funding success and to junior faculty who have limited resources available to support data generation. 

The application must be submitted by 5pm on Wednesday, August 17, 2022.

For questions please visit the webpage or contact Peter Buttrick, MD

Over the past several years the Movement Disorders Center (MDC) has received philanthropic donations earmarked for movement disorders-related research. The leadership of the MDC feels these funds would be best used to invest in one-year pilot projects and young investigators with the objectives of increasing the chances of success for unique projects tied to the MDC and encouraging promising young investigators to pursue careers in research.   

Please see the Request for Pilot Grant Applications for additional details.   

The application deadline is Friday, August 19, 2022.

Should you have questions, please contact

The 2022-23 grant cycle will fund new initiatives for investigators who are pursuing joint-biology related research that should lead to NIH K/R type funding or other extramural support (e.g. foundations, industry, Department of Defense, etc.). 

All application materials for pilot projects are due October 1, 2022 by 5pm MST.
