Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation Annual Research Grant Program

Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation Annual Research Grant Program

The Children's Cardiomyopathy Foundation (CCF) is pleased to announce the availability of one-year research grants for studies focused on pediatric cardiomyopathy. The purpose of CCF’s Annual Research Grant Program is to advance knowledge of the basic mechanism of the disease and to develop more accurate diagnostic methods and improved therapies for children affected with cardiomyopathy.

The CCF is inviting investigator-initiated research proposals for innovative basic, clinical, population, or translational studies related to the cause, diagnosis, or treatment of primary cardiomyopathy in children under the age of 18 years. CCF's grant program is designed to provide seed funding to investigators for the testing of initial hypotheses and collecting of preliminary data to help secure long-term funding by the NIH and/or other major granting institutions.

The principal investigator must hold an MD, PhD, or equivalent degree and reside in the United States or Canada. The investigator must have a faculty appointment at an accredited U.S. or Canadian institution and have the proven ability to pursue independent research as evidenced by publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Funding is available in the range of 25–50 thousand U.S. dollars for one year of total direct costs. Following the completion of the proposed study, a second year of funding may be an option for relevant study extensions.

For downloadable CCF grant guidelines and application forms please visit link. The deadline for application submission is Friday, September 3, 2010. Final award decisions will be made by January 2011.
