New OpportunitiesJDRF Project Concepts letter of intent
JDRF’s Strategic Research Agreements provide research funding for single or multiple investigators to address critical gaps and challenges and potential breakthroughs in Type 1 diabetes research.
The Strategic Research Agreement is a partnership between Investigator(s) and JDRF Scientists to help address roadblocks and accelerate JDRF’s mission through support of cutting-edge scientific investigation.
Further, this mechanism embodies cooperative development of a research plan, interim quarterly reporting on milestones and interaction with JDRF scientists prior to and during the award period. The budget and duration of funding are variable and continued funding is based on satisfactory effort and quarterly progress on milestones.
An investigator interested in pursuing a research opportunity with JDRF must submit a Project Concept through JDRF’s Project Concept Call in RMS360. Project Concepts are selected on the basis of programmatic fit and robustness of the concept. In addition, projects that hold a prospect for transformative breakthroughs that prevent, treat or cure Type 1 diabetes will be given top priority.
Letters of Intent are due by 4 February 2019. For application advice and assistance, please contact Mary Lyons, Senior Research Grants Officer (IGII).
