Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Canada academic researchers affiliated with North American degree-granting institutions for the development of innovative approaches and new methodologies in regulatory science. Proposals initiated by researchers from underrepresented populations are strongly encouraged.

The Burroughs Wellcome Fund identified Innovation in Regulatory Science as an important, underfunded area. This initiative is designed to provide financial support to stimulate research efforts in this area.  The program's focus is on providing support for academic researchers developing new methodologies or innovative approaches in regulatory science that will ultimately inform the regulatory decisions FDA and others make.  This would necessarily draw upon the talents of individuals trained in mathematics, computer science, applied physics, medicine, engineering, toxicology, epidemiology, biostatistics, and systems pharmacology, to name a few.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

These awards are open to USA and Canadian citizens or permanent residents who have a faculty or adjunct faculty appointment at a North American degree-granting institution.

Awards are made to degree-granting institutions in the USA or Canada on behalf of the awardee. Grants can only be made to non-profit degree-granting institutions [501(c)(3) or equivalent] in the U.S. or Canada on behalf of the award recipient.

Eligibility Requirements:
- Candidates may self-nominate but need to obtain approval by an official for sponsored programs at the institution where the work will be performed.
- Candidates must hold an M.D., Ph.D., D.V.M., D.D.S., or M.D.-PhD degree.
- Candidates must be based at a nonprofit institution [501(c)(3) or equivalent] in the USA or Canada.
- Candidates must hold a faculty position, tenure-track or non-tenure track, or adjunct faculty position at an accredited, degree-granting institution in the United States or Canada; grants are made to the institutions on behalf of the award recipients.
- Candidates must be an investigator at the adjunct, assistant, associate, or full professor level.
- Citizens and non-citizen permanent and temporary residents of the USA and Canada who are legally qualified to work in the USA or Canada are eligible.

Temporary Canadian residents must hold a valid Canadian visa (Study Permit, C-43, C44, C-10, or C-20 work permits/visas). If a grant is awarded and your visa does not allow for such a stay, BWF may terminate the grant. BWF will not intercede on behalf of non-citizens whose stay in the USA may be limited by their visa status. If you are invited to submit a full application, your institution must verify your immigration status as part of your application.

BWF strongly encourages applications from women and underrepresented minorities, including Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, Native Americans, Alaskan Natives or Native Hawaiians.
