Typically $100,000 Award
($50,000 for each of two years)
Friends of FSH Research Independent Investigator Grants provides support for investigators during the critical period between the initiation of research and the receipt of sustained funding. A two-year award typically up to $50,000 per year (typical maximum of $100,000 for two years) is provided to scientists who are clearly independent and function at a principal investigator level.
Friends of FSH Research will consider proposals for clinical, basic or applied research; research must be relevant to the understanding and treatment of Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy. For instance, identifying the DUX4 promoter is of great interest.
At present, we are requiring a Preliminary Grant Application and, if after reviewing the preliminary application we feel that there is enough interest in the project, we will require the applicant to submit a Full Grant Application.
Selection of award will be based upon scientific merit and program relevance to FSHD. We strongly recommend listening to the webinar given by John Porter, NINDS Program Officer, on Rigor and Reproducibility in Science and reviewing the NINDS document on Rigorous Study Design and Transparent Reporting referenced in the talk.
A revolving review process has been established so as to allow a quick turn-around for requests. Thus at this time we have no specific deadlines.
