Pilot Award

Funding level: Maximum of $75,000 may be requested

Period: Up to 1 year of support is available

 

The pilot grant is intended to encourage exploratory research, to develop and test exciting new hypotheses or research approaches that have the potential to significantly advance our understanding and/or treatment of CCLA, GLA, GSD, or KLA. Given the exploratory nature, no preliminary data are required but may be included if available.   At the end of the pilot award, investigators are expected to use data generated during the award period to apply for additional funding.

At the end of the award period, investigators are expected to apply for additional funding from outside agencies (e.g. NIH).
