Identifier: 135/16
Recipients:
Categorie: Projectes de recerca

OTRI deadline: 11/05/2016
Call aim:

To support Parkinson's disease therapeutic development along the pre-clinical and clinical path (both drug and non-pharmacological therapeutics, including gene therapy, biological, surgical and non-invasive approaches). The Michael J. Fox Foundation seeks applications with potential for fundamentally altering disease course and/or significantly improving treatment of symptoms above and beyond current standards of care. Applicants are asked to develop a clear plan, including major ‘go/no go’ decision milestones, for moving a therapeutic strategy toward ultimate clinical utility in people with PD.

 

Duration: <p>Applicants may request up to two years of funding for <strong>preclinical </strong>development or up to three years of funding for <strong>clinical </strong>development.</p>

  • Applications may be submitted by: U.S. and non-U.S. entities, public and private non-profit entities, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, laboratories, units of state and local governments, and eligible agencies of the federal government.
  • Given the significant coordination and leadership necessary for this program, post-doctoral fellows are NOT eligible to apply as PIs.
  • The Therapeutic Pipeline Program is open to industry and academic investigators working at either pre-clinical or clinical stages of therapeutic development (both drug and non-pharmacological therapeutics)
  • Applicants should NOT submit the same idea to multiple programs of MJFF.

  • Innovation
  • Overall experimental design and objectives
  • Investigator/Environment: The investigative team should be appropriately trained and well suited to carrying out the proposed work
  • Sharing Plan: Applicants should provide details on how data and/or research tools (e.g., clinical datasets, research reagents and models) will be made available to the public for future research purposes
  • Budget: The proposed budget should be reasonable and justified for the research proposed. Project Timeline: Timelines for completing each study should be clearly defined and include relevant milestones. Project goals must be achievable within the award period
  • MJFF Portfolio: Overlap with other MJFF investments are considered before making any final funding decisions
