|Hartwell Foundation - Individual Biomedical Research Awards|
Key Deadlines: June 17, 2013 (CWRU internal LOI); July 19, 2013 (CWRU Internal application); September 16, 2013 (Sponsor Proposal Due).
Because Case Western Reserve University earned an at-large bid in The Hartwell Foundation's Individual Biomedical Research Awards program, CWRU is eligible to nominate two faculty members for proposal submission this year. In 2011, both of CWRUs applicants were selected for awards. In 2012, one of CWRU's two applicants was selected.
The foundation funds 10 Hartwell Investigators annually for their innovative, early-stage, cutting-edge biomedical research that has the potential to benefit children. These awards provide funding to individual researchers in the U.S. for three years, at $100,000 direct cost per year.
The official announcement and description of this opportunity may be found on the foundation's website: http://www.thehartwellfoundation.org/Individual_Biomedical_Research_Awards.shtml
Projects should represent early-stage biomedical research that has not yet qualified for significant outside funding, including those not yet submitted for funding consideration. The Foundation is looking for research projects that are early-stage, innovative and cutting-edge, and will only consider funding those proposals that reflect relevance in terms of potential benefit to children.
In selecting awardees, The Hartwell Foundation takes into account the transformative nature of the proposed innovation, the extent to which a strategic or translational approach might accelerate the clinical application of research results to benefit children, the extent of collaboration in the proposed research, the institutional commitment to provide encouragement and technical support to the investigator, and the extent to which funding the investigator will make a difference.
Applicants must be available to interview with the internal selection committee in early August and with representatives of the Foundation in October. They also must commit to travel to the Foundation's Annual Meeting in October 2014.
