American Psychological Foundation Alexander Gralnick Research Investigator Prize
Application deadline: APRIL 15, 2018
The $20,000 grant supports “exceptional individuals working in the area of serious mental illness,” including but not limited to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and paranoia (delusional disorder).
The American Psychological Foundation provides financial support for innovative research and programs that enhance the power of psychology to elevate the human condition and advance human potential both now and in generations to come.
The APF Alexander Gralnick Research Investigator Prize recognizes “exceptional individuals working in the area of serious mental illness,” including but not limited to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and paranoia (delusional disorder). The prize was established to honor the late Alexander Gralnick, MD, and to reflect the breadth of his accomplishments and contributions in the field of serious mental illness. Dr. Gralnick was a Life Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association, and he received the American Psychiatric Association’s Distinguished Service Award and the Service to the Mentally Ill Award of the World Association for Psychosocial Rehabilitation.
The prize aims to carry on Dr. Gralnick’s legacy by facilitating research by doctoral-level investigators in the area of serious mental illness.
Collaborative Research Projects to Enhance Applicability of Mouse Models for Translational Research (Collaborative R01) – National Institutes of Health
The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite applications for collaborative R01 projects from multi-disciplinary teams to expand, improve, or transform the utility of mouse cancer and tumor models for translational research. For a linked set of collaborative R01s, each site has its own Program Director(s)/Principal Investigator(s), and the program provides a mechanism for cross-site coordination and communication. Collaborative studies are appropriate to address research questions beyond the capacity of a single-site investigation, particularly to accommodate collaborations among sites with diverse expertise, perspectives, and contributions.
The NCI supports many hypothesis-driven, mechanistic R01 projects that employ mice, or develop and use mouse cancer models or human-in-mouse tumor models for oncology research. However, the NCI has not previously supported projects devoted to ensuring that mice and mouse models used for translational research questions are used appropriately and that the models provide reliable information for patient benefit.
Teams of applicants could propose demonstrations of how to overcome limitations of oncology mouse and human-in-mouse models, define new uses of models or mouse genetics for unexplored translational challenges, advance standard practices for use of translational models, test approaches to validate and credential models, or challenge current practices for how models are used translationally.
NARSAD Grants are one of the highest distinctions in the field of mental health research. Many investigators go on to receive larger federal and private grants based on their NARSAD Grant projects. No other organization outside of the federal government has funded the number of mental health research grants that the Foundation has—or been responsible for more breakthroughs in the field.
National Institutes of Health (NIH) – Translational Research in Pediatric and Obstetric Pharmacology and Therapeutics (R03)
The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to encourage applications for translational and clinical research as well as clinical trials that will advance our knowledge about the underlying mechanisms of drug action, response, and safety in children at various developmental stages, and in pregnant women and the developing fetus.
The overall goals of the FOA are to improve the safety and effectiveness of current drugs for pediatric or obstetric patients, and to enhance the development of new drugs or a safer usage of the existing drugs for tailored therapies to meet emerging clinical needs for these special populations.
