Established in 2005, the New York Stem Cell Foundation is dedicated to curing major contemporary diseases through stem cell research. In addition to performing and conducting original research, the foundation acts as an international hub for thinkers, laboratories, and institutions working to maximize impact for actual patients.
To that end, the foundation is accepting applications from early-career investigators working to advance the understanding and use of stem cells in the development of treatments for human disease. The RFA is open to national and international researchers based at an accredited academic or nonprofit research institution.
Under the RFA, grants of $1.5 million dollars over five years will be awarded. Eligible candidates must have completed an MD, PhD, or DPhil; be within five years of starting a professorship or comparable position; demonstrate research and supervisory experience; have a publication record; and demonstrate experience translating basic sciences to a clinical setting.
See the New York Stem Cell Foundation website for complete guidelines and application instructions.
