Eligibility
Applicants must hold a Ph.D., M.D., D.M.D., D.V.M., D.O., or equivalent degree and have a faculty position or equivalent at a domestic or foreign: non-profit organization, or public or private institution, such as a university, college, medical school, hospital, research institute, or laboratory.
Description
Individual Investigator Research Grant Awards are designed to concentrate research in areas that will have the greatest potential to move towards treatments and cures for the inherited orphan retinal degenerative diseases and dry age-related macular degeneration (dAMD). N.B.: FFB does not support research for neovascular AMD or diabetic retinopathy. The Foundation has identified Research Priority Areas (RPA) that align with its mission and this targeted open call for application is to address specific gaps identified in current retinal disease research. While applications addressing the areas of particular interest below will be given priority consideration, the FFB will also consider proposals for highly novel research that do not fit easily within these goals The LOI for such proposals must clearly explain why the research is likely to lead to prevention, treatments or cures for the orphan inherited retinal degenerative diseases. RESEARCH PRIORITY AREAS (RPA): - Novel Medical Therapies (NMT) - Gene Therapy (GT) - Cell and Molecular Mechanisms of Retinal Disease (CMM) - Genetics (GE) - Clinical-Structure and Function (CL) - Regenerative Medicine (RM) Eligibility Applicants must hold a Ph.D., M.D., D.M.D., D.V.M., D.O., or equivalent degree and have a faculty position or equivalent at a domestic or foreign: non-profit organization, or public or private institution, such as a university, college, medical school, hospital, research institute, or laboratory.
