Ataxia - Bronya J. Keats International Research Collaboration Award 2014 ($ 400,000)
Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance (FARA) accepts proposals for its annual Bronya J. Keats International Research Collaboration Award. Deadline for submission of Letters of Intent is May 15, 2014. Proposals must focus on Friedreich's Ataxia (FA) research that relies on international collaboration among investigators in at least two different countries. The applicant may request a combined budget of up to $ 200,000 per year for one or two years.
Special consideration will be given to research proposals that bring new scientists to the FA community. The rationale for the collaboration needs to be convincing and must clearly demonstrate that the research goals could not be achieved by just one of the participating groups and that the synergy among the groups is essential for the success of the project.
Friedreich's Ataxia Research Alliance supports research through funding competitive grants, promoting collaboration among scientists, advocating for public-private partnerships that support drug discovery, drug development and clinical research and hosting open forums for leading scientists to share their insights, ideas and challenges to advancing treatments for FA.
