The National Eczema Association acts as a voice, resource, and hub for the millions of Americans who are living with eczema.
To advance this mission, the organization is inviting applications for its Eczema Champion Research Grant program. Through the program, experienced researchers will be awarded grants of up to $100,000 in support of innovative, cutting-edge investigations related to eczema. The award also is intended to serve as a bridge for previous successful NEA Catalyst Research Award recipients by providing a funding mechanism to stay in the eczema research field and strengthen their research program and commitment to advancing understanding of the disease.
The foundation has identified the following research priorities: cutting-edge basic and translational science; eczema heterogeneity; novel insights; innovations in clinical practice and care; alleviation of disease burden; and/or diseases prevention.
Eligible applicants include associate professors (or above) that have or have had national-level funding as a principal investigator (or co-PI) within the past three years on an R01 grant or its equivalent (e.g., VA Merit Award, NSF grant, NIH program project or cooperative grant). Applicants need not be a U.S. citizen and the research need not take place in the United States.
See the National Eczema Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
