Detall de la convocatòria


Característiques principals
Research grants are available for innovative proposals that will lead to improvements in the prevention, diagnosis or therapy of Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis.
BMRP-CCFA especially supports research that can be readily translated to improve the care of human IBD in the near future
Basic and clinical investigators, scientists not currently working in inflammatory bowel disease, and interdisciplinary teams are encouraged to apply.
Preference is given to proposals for work conducted with human samples or patients. Research using non-human material should lead to translational benefits to patients with IBD.
Investigators in nonprofit institutions worldwide are eligible for funding.

Informació addicional
There is a two-step process for requesting funding:
Applicants should submit a brief Letter of Interest (up to three pages, not including attachments) as the initial request for funding.
Investigators whose Letters of Interest fit the BMRP-CCFA's criteria and areas of interest will be invited to submit a Full Grant Application.

Letters of Interest are taken through
The following information is part of the three-page limit:
  • Title of the project
  • Specific hypothesis or question to be investigated
  • Methodology
  • Data analysis
  • Anticipated outcomes

    The following items (except for #1) are required, but not part of the three-page limit:
  • Supportive information, such as references, preliminary data or recent publications, may be included.
  • State why your project fits the BMRP-CCFA's criteria (see "BMRP Goals"), including its relevance and likely benefits to patients with IBD in the next several years.
  • Attach the investigator’s curriculum vitae(s) or biographical sketch(es).
  • Briefly describe the laboratory or clinical environment.
  • Indicate the estimated total budget (see “Budget” under “Policies”) and the period for which funding is requested. Keep in mind that we are interested in funding exploratory projects in order to test new ideas and directions in IBD research. Thus, funding requests should be in concert with the foundation’s purpose.
  • Provide the principal investigator’s e-mail and postal addresses.
    There are no deadlines or specific dates for applications. Proposals are accepted and reviewed year-round.
    BMRP-CCFA does not accept more than one LOI from any one investigator at any one time. Revised proposals may only be submitted at the request of the BMRP-CCFA.
