Early Translational I
CIRM Early Translational Research Awards
The CIRM Early Translational Research Awards are designed to move promising basic research in stem cell science toward the clinic. These awards will support two categories of projects including research that: 1) results in a development candidate that meets an unmet medical need; or 2) addresses a significant bottleneck in the translation of stem cell biology that hinders advancement of effective, novel cell therapies to the clinic.
FORMS AND INSTRUCTIONS:
All Principal Investigators planning to apply for a CIRM Early Translational Research Award must be officially nominated on a Candidate Nomination Form (CNF) by their host institution and must notify CIRM in a Letter of Intent (LOI). The forms for the CNF and LOI can be accessed through the links below. The Candidate Nomination Form (in hard copy) and the Letter of Intent (as an email attachment to: Early_Translational_LOI@cirm.ca.gov) must be received by CIRM no later than 5:00pm PDT on October 15th , 2008. No exceptions will be made.
APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS AND FORMS
Application forms will be available online by September 17, 2008. Applications must be received by CIRM no later than 5:00pm PST on November 20th, 2008. No exceptions will be made. Applications will only be accepted from PIs who 1) have been officially nominated on a CNF from their home institution and 2) have submitted a LOI that was accepted by CIRM.
