Grants to USA and Canada academic researchers who are faculty or adjunct faculty members at a North American degree-granting institution. Funding is intended to support the development of innovative approaches and new methodologies in regulatory science. These changes will ultimately inform the regulatory decisions that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and others make.
Academic researchers who have been trained in mathematics, computer science, applied physics, medicine, engineering, toxicology, epidemiology, biostatistics, systems pharmacology, food safety and nutrition, and other fields may apply. Selection will be based on the creativity of the proposal and its potential to lead to significant innovation in regulatory science, as well as on the appropriateness of the environment in which the project is to be conducted, and its potential impact on the careers of investigators. The translation of possible results of the research to improving the regulatory process will be an important consideration in the selection process.
Support allocated for research is under the control of the award recipient and may be used flexibly for such items as equipment, consumable supplies, travel to scientific meetings, and laboratory personnel working with the award recipient.
