PKD Foundation Research Request for Applications
Deadline: September 1, 2013 One of the PKD Foundation’s principal goals is the development of clinical interventions for the treatment of polycystic kidney disease. Traditionally, the Foundation pursued this goal through the support of basic laboratory research aimed at increasing understanding of the genetic and pathological processes involved in PKD. Proposals of this type will be accepted under this RFA; however, proposals with more obvious or direct potential to accelerate the development of potential therapies will be viewed more favorably. Proposals focusing on childhood PKD are also encouraged. It is anti...

The purpose is to gain in-depth knowledge of the mechanisms involved in: progressive differentiation of Embryonic Stem Cells (ESCs) into embryonic lineages, progenitor cells...

Differentiation and Integration of Stem Cells (Embryonic and Induced-Pluripotent) Into Developing or Damaged Tissues (R21)
Funding Opportunity PAR-13-095 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) issued by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) is intended to encourage innovative and high risk/impact research in the area of stem cell biology, to be explored in model organisms. The research proposed under this program can explore approaches and concepts new to this area; development of new technologies; or initial research and development of data upon which significant future research may be built. The primary focus of the FOA is to promote in...

FacioScapuloHumeral Muscular Dystrophy Society Research Grants and Fellowships
The FSH Society offers basic research grants, research fellowships and postdoctoral fellowships to support research relevant to understanding the molecular genetics and cause of Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD). To obtain an application, please submit a letter of intent. The letter of intent should contain a single page introductory cover letter plus a one or two page descriptive summary of the proposed research – enough for a decision from the Scientific Advisory Board. A well conceived and tight rationale for a research project can easily lend itself to one page. The letter of intent may be submit...
