The Dana Foundation Program in the Neuroimmunology of Brain Cancers and Infections
The Dana Foundation is pleased to announce a call for proposals for its Neuroimmunology program, focusing on brain cancers and infections. Individual grants will total up to $200,000, payable over three years. Specifically, the Foundation is inviting studies of 1) immune-based therapies for primary brain tumors, and for metastases to the brain of other cancers; 2) immune responses to infections in the brain, including but not limited to viral encephalitis, meningitis, cerebral malaria, and prion diseases; and 3) how immune functions are carried out and modified in the brain. More program and application details can be found at http://www.dana.org/grants/detail.aspx?id=4522. Interested applicants should use this form to submit a 1-2 page prospectus and a CV as a single PDF document to the Vice Chancellor for Research.
The internal deadline for these materials is 5 PM December 30, 2009. This will allow time for selection of our campus nominee in advance of the Dana foundation deadline of Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at Noon (EST)
