Grants to New York nonprofit organizations and government agencies for medical research addressing spinal cord injuries. LOIs are due February 24. Applicants must register by February 27 to attend the March 1 informational conference. Proposals will be considered for early translational research through pre-clinical research.
The SCIRB’s mission and goal is to:
1) Seek major advances toward a cure and not simply incremental research gains or incremental improvements for SCI patients.
2) Support research that tests novel hypotheses and/or advances innovative research approaches that could move the field of SCI research significantly toward discovering a cure for SCI.
The SCIRB’s mission is to stimulate high-quality, innovative SCI research that will help promote treatment and cure for SCI, including methods for reversing paralysis or restoring function caused by injury, or for minimizing or preventing damage occurring during acute phases of injury. To achieve this mission, the Program offers a of competitive research awards to support the New York State scientists and their collaborators from a variety of biomedical disciplines in initiating and pursuing such efforts.
Purpose of the Funds:
The SCIRB wishes to stimulate the growth of SCI research and to accelerate the pace with which basic (preclinical) findings are translated into clinical benefits for spinal cord-injured persons. In addition, SCIRB wishes to fill fundamental gaps in knowledge that are barriers to scientific advances in SCI research.
This Request for Applications (RFA) offers researchers the opportunity to advance well-proven hypotheses and early translational research findings into mid/late-stage translational and/or pre- clinical research that has a clear and feasible translational path to clinical application. The RFA also offers the opportunity to validate and optimize or iteratively refine devices, tools and technologies to treat or cure SCI paralysis in ways that significantly improve current capabilities.
