DoD Neurotoxin Exposure Treatment Parkinson's Research Program
Synergistic Idea Award
Amount of funding: Total costs budgeted will not exceed $3,000,000.
Purpose: The NETP Program Synergistic Idea Award supports new ideas that represent synergistic approaches to neurotoxin exposure and treatment-related Parkinson’s disease research involving two to four Principal Investigators (PIs) at the Assistant Professor (or equivalent) level or above. These investigators should utilize their complementary and synergistic perspectives to address a central problem or question in neurotoxin exposure and treatment-related Parkinson’s research. This award is designed to support both new and pre-existing partnerships and encourages participation of PIs from other research fields. The NETP Program seeks applications from investigators working in a wide spectrum of disciplines including, but not limited to, basic science, engineering, bioinformatics, population science, translational research, and clinical research.
Eligibility: Independent investigators - Faculty with PI eligibility and CE faculty (with an approved CE faculty PI waiver obtained through their RPM in RMG prior to the pre-application/letter of intent) may be the Initiating or Partnering PI .
Not eligible: Instructors, Clinical Instructors, Academic staff-research (i.e., research associates), and postdocs are not eligible for this RFP because Stanford does not consider them to be independent positions.
Pre-application/Letter of intent (required) deadline: August 18, 2020 via eBrap
Please include your RPM’s name as business official in the pre-application.
Institutional representative (RPM/RMG or CGO/OSR) deadline: September 9, 2020
