The A-T Children’s Project provides competitive grant awards for basic and translational research grants related to ataxia-telangiectasia (A-T).
A-T Children’s Project is currently focusing its funding efforts on proposals that apply innovative and novel strategies for suggesting, developing and evaluating specific disease-modifying and symptomatic interventions with an emphasis on:
- translational (bench to bedside) research
- clinical studies
- As such, these types of applications will be given priority funding.
Funding & Duration
One- and two-year projects are funded up to a maximum total direct cost of US $75,000 (approx AUD $98,000) per year.
Proposals from junior investigators, from scientists in related disciplines, and from individuals with innovative new ideas for A-T research are particularly encouraged, as are laboratories and teams working together from industry as well as teaching universities.
Applications must be submitted to the Research Branch for internal review by 25 August 2015.
Submitted applications must be accompanied by a signed and completed copy of the University’s Grant Application Cover Sheet. Submissions may be emailed to the Research Branch unless otherwise specified.
