*Update*
Arnold and Mabel Beckman Foundation
2015 Beckman Young Investigator Award

**Update-Stanford is not eligible to submit letters of intent to the BYI program this year**
Effective with this year’s 2015 program, and for the first time, the foundation has added the following restriction under eligibility on the following webpage (just above “Procedure”):
"Individuals from institutions with a currently funded Beckman Young Investigator are not eligible to apply."
[This was a decision made by the Beckman Foundation Board of Trustees to more equitably distribute the significantly smaller number of BYI's awarded.]
Because we have a currently funded investigator (2012-2016), the sponsor has confirmed Stanford assistant professors will NOT be able to submit letters of intent for their Beckman Young Investigator Program (BYI) until two years from now (until Sept. 2016 for the 2017 BYI program).

FACULTY: UNLIMITED NUMBERS OF APPLICANTS PERMITTED FOR THESE PROGRAMS

Simons Foundation
Life Sciences Program
Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life Investigator Award

Unlimited numbers of applicants permitted
Amount of funding: $100K-$400K total costs per year (including 20% indirects) for 5 years
Eligibility: Stanford faculty with PI eligibility with Ph.D. and M.D. degrees
To advance our knowledge of the processes that led to the emergence of life, the Simons Foundation established the Simons Collaboration on the Origins of Life (SCOL). The Collaboration supports creative, innovative research on topics such as the astrophysical and planetary context of the origins of life, the development of prebiotic chemistry, the assembly of the first cells, the advent of Darwinian evolution and the earliest signs of life on the young Earth. Origin of life topics/discussion: more >>
Letter of intent-first stage proposal (required): Sept. 12, 2014 via proposal central
Full proposal (by invitation only): December 1, 2014 via proposal

Simons Foundation
Mathematics and Physical Sciences
Targeted Grants in the Mathematical Modeling of Living Systems

Unlimited numbers of applicants are permitted.
$200K total costs per year (including 20% indirects) for 3 years (4 awards to be made)
Eligibility: established faculty with PI eligibility. Will fund one investigator or a team of 2 investigators.
The program aims to support research in the life sciences that breaks new conceptual or theoretical ground and relates closely to experiment, for example, by introducing new and experimentally testable concepts or by developing models that can explain data and motivate new classes of experiments. Successful proposals will typically involve both new theoretical approaches and a direct interaction with biological experiment.
Research areas: A broad spectrum of research areas will be considered, ranging from cellular-level issues of organization, regulation, signaling and dynamics through morphogenesis to the properties of organisms and ecology, as well as neuroscience and evolution; however, preference will be given to areas in which modeling approaches are less established, and, for this reason, bioinformatics and genomics will fall outside the scope of the program.
Letter of intent deadline (required): Sept. 30, 2014 via proposal central
Full proposal (by invitation only): Jan. 31, 2015 via proposal central

Award Mechanisms
Breakthrough Award Levels 1 and 2
Breakthrough Award Levels 3 and 4

Breakthrough Award Levels 1 and 2
Timeline:
Pre-application (required) deadline: Dec. 3, 2014, 5p.m. ET via https://ebrap.org/
Full proposal: Dec. 17, 2014, 11:59 p.m. ET via grantsgov
Purpose: The intent of the Breakthrough Award is to support promising research that has high potential to lead to or make breakthroughs in breast cancer.
Amount of funding and funding level descriptions:
Funding level 1: maximum of $350,000 direct costs plus indirects over 3 years: Innovative, high-risk/high-reward research that is in the earliest stages of idea development. Research with potential to yield new avenues of investigation. Proof of concept. No preliminary data required.
Funding level 2: maximum of $700,000 direct costs plus indirects over 3 years/. Research that is already supported by preliminary data and has potential to make significant advancements toward clinical translation. Demonstration of efficacy in in vivo models, as applicable.
Eligibility:
Faculty with PI eligibility and CE faculty (with an approved CE faculty waiver), Instructors* and Postdoctoral Fellows*
Stanford eligibility clarification for this RFP: The eligibility guidelines indicate "Investigators at all academic levels (or equivalent) are eligible to submit an application." and "Postdoctoral fellows are eligible to submit and are encouraged to apply”. Because the RFP is considered a mentored career development grant for postdoctoral fellows (a mentorship statement is required for the application), our Dean's Office has confirmed this can also be considered mentored career development grant for Instructors as well. Instructors and Postdoctoral fellows will need to submit career development PI waivers to their RPMs in RMG in order to apply.
Partnering PI Option: The Breakthrough Award encourages applications that include meaningful and productive collaborations between investigators. The Partnering PI Option is structured to accommodate two PIs, called the Initiating PI and the Partnering PI, each of whom will receive a separate award.


Breakthrough Award Levels 3 and 4

Timeline:
Pre-application (required) deadline: Oct. 22, 2014, 5pm p.m. ET via https://ebrap.org/
Full proposal (by invitation only): Jan. 29, 2015, 11:59 p.m. ET via grantsgov
Purpose: The intent of the Breakthrough Award is to support promising research that has high potential to lead to or make breakthroughs in breast cancer.
Eligibility:
Stanford faculty with PI eligibility and CE faculty (with an approved PI waiver)
Stanford eligibility clarification for this RFP: The guidelines state “Independent Investigators at all academic levels (or equivalent) are eligible to submit an application”. This is a research grant and not a mentored career development award. Instructors, research associates and postdoctoral fellows are not considered independent investigators here at Stanford therefore they are not eligible.
Partnering PI Option: The Breakthrough Award encourages applications that include meaningful and productive collaborations between investigators. The Partnering PI Option is structured to accommodate two PIs, called the Initiating PI and the Partnering PI, each of whom will each receive a separate award.
Amount of funding and funding level descriptions:
Funding level 3: maximum of $2.5M direct costs plus indirects over 5 years. Advanced translational studies that have potential for near-term clinical investigation. Small-scale clinical trials may apply.
Funding level 4: maximum of $10M direct costs plus indirects over 5 years. Large-scale projects that will transform and revolutionize the clinical management and/or prevention of breast cancer. Near-term clinical impact is expected. PIs are expected to have experience in successfully leading large-scale projects
Note: An invited oral presentation to the BCRP Integration Panel (IP) is a requirement for application review of Funding Level 4 projects, as described in Section II.C., Application Submission Content and Forms.
Partnering PI Option: The combined total funding for the Initiating PI and Partnering PI may not exceed the maximum allowable direct costs for the selected funding level. No additional funds will be provided. A separate award will be made to each PI’s organization.
