Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy (CURE)
03/31/20 9:00 PM ET
Grants to USA, Canada, and International postdoctoral fellows, Neurology residents, and university postdoctoral faculty for independent research projects in epilepsy. Applicants must submit a letter of intent prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to give young researchers a chance to develop a separate research focus from their mentor(s).
Researchers may propose basic or clinical studies, but this award mechanism is not intended to support clinical trials. Research that involves collaboration and a multidisciplinary approach is desirable. The applicant will be required to discuss how this avenue of research is independent from his or her mentor’s research and will lead him or her to a path of independent epilepsy research. Studies are encouraged that will provide new directions for epilepsy therapy, prevention and, ultimately, a cure and that will allow applicants to collect the data necessary to support the grant application to the National Institutes of Health or similar granting agency.
CURE’s priority research areas focus on those that have the potential to truly transform and save lives. Prevention, disease modification, and elimination are critical goals and consistent with CURE's mission. Priority areas:
Based on CURE’s current research objectives, lower priority will be given for research in the following areas:
Funding requests may include salary support for the Principal Investigator (PI), technical staff, supplies necessary to perform the work, animal costs, publication fees, and travel to an epilepsy-related conference if the PI is presenting his/her CUREfunded research.
