Award Start Date: July 1, 2019
The National Hemophilia Foundation (NHF), seeks research grant applications from any multidisciplinary team member within the federally funded hemophilia treatment center (HTC) network for innovative-investigator research (IIR) projects that demonstrate a commitment to the bleeding disorders community supporting NHF's goal to develop outcomes-related data. Innovative projects that promote the development of novel technologies and/or therapies to advance the field of bleeding disorders research are especially encouraged.
Funding Amount: Up to $60,000 per grant for a period of 12-18 months.
Candidates must be associated with a federally funded HTC. All healthcare providers are eligible. Interdisciplinary applications are encouraged and strongly supported.
United States citizenship is not required, but applicants must be affiliated with or be faculty members of a federally funded HTC. Only non-commercial institutions and investigators associated with a non-commercial institution are eligible to apply for this award.
The NHF's IIR grantee is expected to remain at their HTC (institution) for the duration of the project. Letters of support from appropriate officials (ex: candidate's HTC supervisor/leadership, department chair and institution's financial grants/contracts officer) indicating the institution’s commitment to allow the candidate to focus his/her efforts on the stated research project will be required.
