The Kenneth Rainin Foundation supports high-risk research and challenges investigators to push boundaries with the aim of predicting and preventing inflammatory bowel disease.
Through its Innovator Awards program, the foundation provides one-year grants of $100,000 in support of basic, translational, and clinical research projects that test novel ideas in the area of IBD.
Researchers from any scientific discipline worldwide are eligible for funding. Researchers should hold an advanced degree (M.D., Ph.D., or the equivalent) and an academic position at a university, medical center, or research institution. Projects may have only one principal investigator, and funding will be awarded to their home institution; additional investigators may be listed as co-investigators.
Letters of Inquiry must be received no later than February 15, 2017. Upon review, selected applicants will be invited to submit a full proposal.
