IGNITE Online Q&A Webinar, Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 3:30 PM EST (Click Here to Join Webinar)
The NINDS IGNITE (Innovation Grants to Nurture Initial Translational Efforts) program is a multi-component suite of funding opportunities that is meant to facilitate the discovery and development of early-stage therapeutic biotechnology products. The following three funding opportunities have upcoming receipt dates in June 2017:
- PAR-15-070: Assay Development and Therapeutic Agent Identification and Characterization to Support Therapeutic Discovery (R21/R33), next receipt date is June 16
- PAR-15-071: Pharmacodynamics and In vivo Efficacy Studies for Small Molecules and Biologics/Biotechnology Products (R21/R33), next receipt date is June 16
- RFA-NS-16-013: Development and Validation of Model Systems and/or Pharmacodynamic Markers to Facilitate the Discovery of Neurotherapeutics (R21/R33), next receipt date is June 21
The program serves as a feeder program to the later-stage therapy development programs launched by NINDS, namely the Cooperative Research to Enable and Advance Translational Enterprises (CREATE) for Biologics and Blueprint Neurotherapeutics (BPN) programs. An interactive Q&A session will be held for interested applicants on Wednesday, April 19, 2017 from 3:30-4:30 PM EST. All potential IGNITE applicants are encouraged to participate. Investigators can find information about these funding opportunities at our website.
