Dementia consortium funding - Alzheimer's Research UK

Alzheimer's Research UK and the Dementia Consortium invite expressions of interest for their dementia consortium funding. This supports research projects that aim to provide validation of targets for the treatment of dementia or explore the tractability of the target for drug discovery. Promising targets are moved towards the clinic through the successful licence of these projects to industrial partners with the ultimate aim of bringing benefit to patients. Projects must be collaborative in nature, with involvement from the consortium members in devising the final project plan. Projects are sought that focus on novel molecular targets in neurodegenerative diseases,

Projects should provide evidence linking the target to human disease and a strong rationale for target modulation having a therapeutic effect. Scientists at academic institutions worldwide may apply. The lead applicant is expected to have a contract, either fixed term or tenure, which covers the proposed duration of the grant. Grants are typically worth between £100,000 and £250,000 each over two to three years. Up to £500,000 may be awarded in exceptional cases.

Notice of Intent to Publish a Funding Opportunity Announcement for Research Answers to NCI’s Provocative Questions

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) intends to publish Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs) as Request for Applications (RFAs) to solicit applications responding to the new set of 9 Provocative Questions.

The planned issuance of the PQ Initiative includes a new set of 9 PQs, listed below. Each research project proposed in response to these FOAs must be focused on addressing a specific PQ selected from the list. Additional information defining the research scope for responsive projects (the Intent Statement) will be provided in the FOAs and posted at

  • PQ1: What are the underlying causes of the unexplained rising incidence in certain early-onset cancers?
  • PQ2: How does intermittent fasting affect cancer incidence, treatment response, or outcome?
  • PQ3: How do selective pressures affect cell competition and cooperation during cancer initiation or development?
  • PQ4: What mechanisms explain sex differences in cancer incidence, lesion location, or response to therapy?
  • PQ5: What strategies can block or reverse the emergence of new cell lineage states induced by cancer treatments?
  • PQ6: How can cancer cachexia be reversed?
  • PQ7: What methods can be developed to integrate patient-generated health data into electronic health records?
  • PQ8: What strategies improve and sustain the coordination of comprehensive healthcare for underserved cancer patients with comorbid conditions?
  • PQ9: What methods can be developed to effectively study small or rare populations relevant to cancer research?

Estimated Total Funding Up to $15.0 million in fiscal year 2021.
Expected Number of Awards 30
Estimated Award Ceiling R01 application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. R21 application direct costs are limited to $275,000 over a two-year period, with no more than $200,000 in direct costs allowed in any single year.

Co-infection and Cancer (R01 Clinical Trial Not Allowed):NIH

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to enhance mechanistic and epidemiologic investigations addressing the roles of co-infection. Co-infection is defined as the occurrence of infections by two or more infectious (pathogenic or non-pathogenic) agents – either concurrently or sequentially – and includes both acute and chronic infections by viruses, bacteria, parasites, and/or other microorganisms. Preference will be given to investigations of co-infections with known oncogenic agents (excluding human immunodeficiency virus [HIV]) and of co-infections that engender novel opportunities for prevention and treatment.

Deadlines: 6 March, 2020; thereafter, Standard dates apply by 5:00 PM local time of applicant organization.
