ALS Association
PRIZE4LIFE
Assistive Technology Challenge

Second phase* of funding: $400,000
The ALS Association and Prize4Life is to accelerate the development of assistive technology to enable ALS patients at varying levels of disability - including complete paralysis - to communicate freely and with ease. Solutions may include hardware or software development that enables communication without relying on either limb movement or speech. Examples include eye movement tracking and Brain Machine Interface based on diverse neural signals.
*Note: there was a Phase I LOI deadline in November for $50K for proposal development. However, individuals may participate in Phase II even if they did not participate in Phase I.
Prize Phase II registration closes: July 29, 2016
Selected teams will be invited in September to submit full proposals
Institutional representative (RPM/RMG or OSR) deadline: Oct. 3, 2016
Phase II Full proposal (by invitation only) deadline: Oct. 10, 2016

Eligibility: faculty who have active NIH-funded R01 research grants.
Amount of funding:  Application budgets are not limited but need to reflect the actual needs of the proposed project. Applicants may request support for up to 2 years, not to exceed the remaining number of years on the parent grant. If a no-cost extension is needed on the parent grant to incorporate the project period of the competitive revision, the no cost extension must be in place before the revision application is submitted.

Institutional representatives (RPMs/RMG and OSR) and Internal Proposal Deadline Policy
School of Medicine PIs:

PIs: you typically do not have to submit your pre-applications, pre-proposals, abstracts through your RPM.
Exception: CE faculty must submit and obtain approval for a CE faculty PI waiver request >> prior to submitting a pre-proposal, pre-application, LOI- if the sponsor uses those to pre-screen applicants and subsequently invite them to submit full applications.
SoM internal proposal deadline policy, best practices**, FAQs: webpage>>
PIs: You are encouraged to alert your RPM 3-4 weeks prior to any sponsor’s deadline so that your budget can be completed no later than 10 days prior to the sponsor’s deadline. Per the above policy, the institutional representative deadline is the complete by date** and not the “let’s get started date”. [**5 working days prior to the sponsor’s deadline your fully approved and completed PDRF form and application materials must be provided to your RPM/RMG or OSR.]
