Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Maryland nonprofit research organizations, universities, and for-profit research companies for clinical research related to medical therapies. Applicants must register in the online portal prior to applying. Funding is intended for projects in the field of stem cell research.

Stem cell research offers extraordinary promise for new medical therapies and a better understanding of debilitating human diseases, injuries, and conditions. The MSCRF is therefore awarding Clinical Stem Cell Research Grants to organizations that wish to conduct clinical trials in the State of Maryland using human stem cells to advance medical therapies.

All research funded by the MSCRF must involve human stem cells. The Stem Cell Act defines eligible human stem cells as follows: A human cell that has the ability to: (1) divide indefinitely; (2) give rise to many other types of specialized cells; and (3) give rise to new stem cells with identical potential.

Funds may be used for the following direct costs, commensurate with the time dedicated solely to the proposed research:

  • Salary and fringe benefits for the PI and essential personnel
  • Equipment
  • Supplies
  • Consultant costs
  • Contract services
  • Collaboration expenses
  • Travel and conference expenses
  • Publications and miscellaneous costs

GrantWatch ID#: 164125

Estimated Size of Grant:

Under this RFA, the total direct costs proposed may not exceed $650,000.

Term of Contract:

Maximum of 2 years. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from Application to Application, the duration of Awards may also vary.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Who can apply: Companies or Universities/Research Institutes that wish to conduct human stem cell-based clinical trials in the State of Maryland. Organizations that meet the in-State eligibility requirements specified below, and evidence the skills, experience, resources, and support necessary to carry out the proposed research may apply for a Clinical Research Grant

Maryland-based universities, not-for-profit research organization, for-profit, public or private research Companies of all types are eligible for this Award (i.e., those affiliated with universities, colleges, research institutes, medical centers and laboratories as well as those that operate independently). A Company is considered based in Maryland if its primary location of operations is in Maryland.

Companies owned by women, underrepresented minorities and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to participate in this program.

Companies eligible for Clinical Research Grants must conduct all MSCRF-funded work in the State of Maryland. Companies conducting Clinical research may be based outside of Maryland, in the United States, but the work funded by the MSCRF must be conducted at a site in Maryland.

Companies and/or PIs that have received prior MSCRF funding may apply for this Award on a related or different topic.

Each Application for an Award funded by the MSCRF shall have only one (1) PI, but may have multiple Co-PIs, Investigators and/or collaborators. PIs may participate as collaborators in any number of MSCRFfunded Projects in the same funding cycle. However, they may apply to the MSCRF as the lead PI for only one new Award in any given cycle.

A Company and/or PI not in compliance with the reporting obligations under the Clinical Research Grant shall not be eligible to apply for continued or subsequent MSCRF funding.

In-Direct-Costs are not allowed under this RFA. MSCRF funds may not be used to cover personnel costs of Investigators who are located and conduct the work outside the State of Maryland, regardless of whether such out-of-State Investigators are employed or retained by a Maryland-based or non-Maryland based organization.

Pre-Application Information:

PIs, Companies and at least one contact from each Company who will be responsible for Grant administration must be registered in the TEDCO on line submission system at least one month before the Grant Submission Deadline.

Applications that involve a clinical trial must have an IND or IDE, cleared by the FDA for the therapy or device under study, before the Application is submitted to the MSCRF for review.

Clinical Projects shall require a 1:1 match of non-state money.

Awardees shall receive MSCRF funds only after providing documentation to TEDCO confirming that the research to be conducted with MSCRF funds has been approved by the relevant Institutional Review Board (“IRB”), Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (“IACUC”) and, for Projects involving human embryonic stem cells ("hESC"), a Stem Cell Research Oversight Committee ("ESCRO/SCRO").

Applicants must commit to make the results of their MSCRF-funded research readily available to others, through publications (preferably), public presentations or other accessible means.
