Funding opp: Kaganov Research Initiative in Pulmonary Medicine and Engineering

Monday, August 5, 2019

MEDx is pleased to announce a call for proposals that focus on, or have relevance to, lung function or diseases of the lung, especially pulmonary fibrosis, with the following priorities:

  • improve our understanding of disease mechanisms,
  • enhance diagnosis,
  • create more effective treatments
  • find pathways to cure idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and other lung diseases.

Grant proposals should describe multidisciplinary research that meaningfully engages investigators from at least the Schools of Engineering and Medicine. Research on relevant basic biomedical questions, development of enhanced understanding of disease mechanism, the development of therapies, diagnostics or devices, clinical research/trials (excluding Phase 2 or beyond), epidemiological, and/or community-based studies is within scope.

The Initiative is especially interested in proposals that build new collaborations and/or teams, and proposals that might lead to extended, productive collaborations and follow-on funding.

Applications for funding of up to $150,000 (direct costs only) will be considered. 

Proposals are due on October 30, 2019 with funding decisions made in November.
