The NPKUA has launched a new call for Scientific Grant Requests, in order to seek proposals that will help us meet the above strategic goals as well as to close existing gaps in the knowledge and science of PKU, and to further support existing PKU-related projects.
Eligible applicants must have a Ph.D., M.D., or equivalent degrees and currently hold a full-time position at any level (post-doctoral, research scientist, assistant/associate/full professor, etc.) at an established academic/research institution. Applicants will be considered from both the United States and internationally. Investigators from centers with a history of research in metabolic diseases are strongly encouraged to apply. The average award is $40,000; however exceptional applications may be funded at a higher amount if the budget request is justified. Initial grants are awarded for one year with potential of renewal based on progress made during the first year.
Applicants without a faculty appointment (e.g., post-doctoral level) must also submit a letter of support from their project mentor.
The award requires that funds not be used for the support of institutional indirect or overhead costs.
Full proposals should be received no later than November 1, 2020.
