The Kenneth Rainin Foundation invites proposals for its innovator awards. This support high-risk research and challenge investigators to push boundaries to advance our goal of predicting and preventing Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD).
Researchers from any scientific discipline worldwide are eligible for funding. The researchers will hold advanced degrees (MD, PhD or the equivalent) and academic positions at universities, medical centers or research institutions.
Innovator Awards may only have one Principal Investigator, and funding is awarded to their home institution. However additional investigators may be included as Co-Investigators, and the lead institution can create subaward(s). Postdocs are not eligible to apply as a Principal Investigator.
The Innovator Award is for a maximum of $150,000 USD for projects by individual researchers and up to $300,000 USD for collaborative projects involving multiple researchers. The budget must reflect the total amount requested, up to $150,000 USD, which may include up to 10% for indirect costs.
