Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Oklahoma investigators affiliated with institutions of higher education, research institutions, and private industries for activities related to biomedical research. Funding is intended for research studies, travel, equipment, education, and technology. Research topics must be related to regenerative medicine and adult stem cells.

Types of grants:

  1. Research Grants: Research Grants should be focused on adult stem cells and/or regenerative medicine. For applications focused on adult human stem cells, OCASCR defines adult human stem cells as those obtained from umbilical cord blood or other adult samples. For applications focused on regenerative medicine, those projects related to diseases caused by smoking or obesity (i.e. cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, etc.) will be prioritized. 
  2. Shared Equipment Grants: The instrumentation should be part of a core facility and available to investigators in other institutions. 
  3. Education and Travel Grants: Requests can be made for support to attend educational opportunities regarding stem cells and/or regenerative medicine, participate in courses, or train in other laboratories. Support will also be considered for “mini-sabbaticals” to learn stem cell and regenerative medicine-related technology.
  4. Enabling Technology Grants: Investigators with current OCASCR funding or federal funding for stem cell and/or regenerative medicine research may apply for help in obtaining enabling technology, such as commercially available animal models, monoclonal antibody preparation, or genetic assays. The enabling technology should have the potential to make the investigator’s stem cell and/or regenerative medicine research more competitive for subsequent or additional federal funding.
  5. Other: OCASCR is aware that there may be other valuable ways to support adult stem cell and regenerative medicine research, and inquiries are welcome. For example, partial salary support might be requested for personnel in core facilities that are heavily used by OCASCR grantees.

Estimated Size of Grant:

There is no formal limit but it would be unlikely for a research project to be funded for more than $150,000 in direct costs per year. To date, most awards have averaged around $100,000.

Term of Contract:

OCASCR grants are awarded for 1 year. Grants are awarded twice yearly for start dates on July 1 and January 1.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Any Oklahoma Principal Investigator working with adult stem cells and/or regenerative medicine is eligible to apply. Applications from universities, research institutions, and private industry are welcome. Thus far, all successful applicants have been experienced PIs. However, the funds might be appropriate for establishing new labs, provided that there is evidence of independence and all criteria listed below are satisfied.

To be eligible to receive an OCASCR grant, the principal investigator must meet the following criteria:
- Hold a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.), Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.), Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) or equivalent degree (i.e. D.O.);
- Be a professional or faculty member (Professor, Associate Professor or Assistant Professor) at an appropriate educational, medical or research institution. Research track investigators (i.e. Research Assistant Professor or Research Assistant Member) and trainees (i.e. predoctoral or postdoctoral fellows) are not eligible.
- Be qualified to conduct and mentor a program of original research within their own independent laboratory;
- Assume both administrative and financial responsibility for the grant; and
- Have access to institutional resources necessary to conduct the proposed research project.

The grant proposal deadline is September 20, 2022.
