CIRM DISC2: Quest Award
Purpose: The Quest Awards Program promotes the discovery of promising new stem cell-based technologies that could be translated to enable broad use and ultimately, improve patient care. Projects funded through the Quest Awards should propose technology that is uniquely enabled by human stem/progenitor cells or directly reprogrammed cells, or uniquely enabling for the advancement of stem cell-based therapies.
See the guidelines for the specific types of projects that are eligible for partnering.
Amount of funding:
-Diagnostic, a medical device or tool: up to maximum of $700,000 direct costs (plus indirects) per award over 2 years
-Therapeutic: up to maximum of $1.4 million direct costs (plus indirects) per award over 2 years
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility; applicant must commit at least 20% effort to the project
Timeline:
Institutional representative (RPM/RMG or OSR) deadline: Sept. 8, 2016
DISC2 deadline: Sept. 15, 2016

FYI: DISC3.2: Challenge Awards
The Challenge Award program provides funding to address or overcome key challenges in the stem cell field that are preventing or slowing the discovery of promising new stem cell technologies that could be rapidly translated towards improving patient care. Key challenges will be defined periodically by CIRM and announced in advance of each funding cycle.
To be determined.

Translational Program:

CIRM Partnering Opportunity for Translational Research Projects
The objective of this initiative is to create a highly competitive opportunity for promising stem cell-based projects that accelerate completion of translational stage activities necessary for advancement to clinical study or broad end use for any one of the following product types:
TRAN 1: Stem cell-based therapeutic candidate
TRAN 2: Diagnostic (including medical imaging agents) based on stem cells, or critical for stem cell based therapy development or use
TRAN 3: Medical device (non-diagnostic) for a stem cell-based therapy or critical for stem cell based therapy development or use
TRAN 4: Novel tool that addresses a critical bottleneck to the discovery or development of stem cell-based therapy
Project outcomes, allowable activities, and what qualifies for each of the above product types are described in the corresponding Appendices: A, B, C, and D. The overall application and review process and general requirements for all product types are described in main document.
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility; Must commit at least 30% effort to working on the project- see other criteria
