Boler-Parseghian Center for Rare and Neglected Diseases “Catalyst Program” RFA 2018

Author: Corianne Kellems

Submission Deadline: Dec 10th, 2018 5:00 PM
Earliest Start Date. March 1, 2019.


The Boler-Parseghian Center for Rare and Neglected Diseases’ ‘Catalyst Program’ solicits proposals in biomolecular medicine directed toward critical treatment targets and/or processes of drug failure in cell, tissue, organismal and human systems in rare and neglected diseases.


We are particularly interested in projects in disorders of metabolism, inflammatory and immune dysfunction, neurogenesis and rare tumor biology.


We favor proposals supporting research by graduate students in years 2 + since these are critical periods of training and research productivity. But proposals with requests for support of supplies, small equipment and other research personnel will also be considered.


Applicants may request up to $35,000 in direct costs (there are no indirect costs).


Project funds will be available for one year from the start date of the project.

Thanks for all you do for rare and neglected diseases.
