Call for proposals: Progress in human disease research. Critical reviews and future roadmaps
We are pleased to inform you of a new funding opportunity <http://www.hsi.org/issues/biomedical_research/research/call-for-proposals-human-disease-research.html > available through Humane Society International and The Humane Society of the United States to support the preparation and journal publication of independent, in-depth reviews of research progress in key human disease areas.
The aim of this grant program is to support strategic scientific dialogue regarding the potential of extending the U.S. National Research Council vision of 21st century toxicology to the wider field of biosciences. To this end, each review article will need to 1) critically evaluate the state of the science, including mechanistic understanding of the pathophysiological pathways/networks underlying the disease in humans, the human relevance, translational success and limitations associated with available research models, and 2) provide a detailed proposal for optimizing the use of modern, human biology-based tools and approaches (in vitro, in silico, bioengineering, etc.) into the research paradigm to potentially improve translational success in future.
Applicants with a scientific PhD (or equivalent) and current or recent research and publication experience in an area of human disease, are invited to tender for one of these grants.
The deadline for applications is 31 July 2016 at midnight EST.
We invite you to consider applying for a grant or forwarding this message to colleagues who may be interested.
