Award Mechanisms

 

1) Investigator-Initiated Research Award
Amount of funding: maximum of $600,000 total direct costs plus indirects for up to 3 yrs
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility (with UTL, MCL, and NTL-Research appointments) AND Clinician Educator (CE) with an approved PI waiver >>)

Full application (invitation only): Sept. 18, 2013, 5 p.m. ET via grants.gov
Purpose: supports research focusing on the complex of symptoms known as Gulf War Illness, improving its definition and diagnosis, characterizing disease symptoms, and better understanding its pathobiology. It is intended to encourage basic through clinical research aimed at identification of objective measures to distinguish ill from healthy veterans (e.g., biomarkers), elucidate potential treatment targets for GWI, or improve understanding of the pathobiology underlying GWI symptoms.
Applicants proposing clinical research are encouraged to collaborate with an investigator who has demonstrated access to ill and healthy Gulf War veterans, particularly investigators within the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, to improve access to ill Gulf War veteran populations.

 

2) Innovative Treatment Evaluation Award
Amount of funding: maximum of $450,000 total direct costs plus indirects for up to 3 yrs
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility (with UTL, MCL, and NTL-Research appointments) and Clinician Educator (CE) faculty (with an PI waiver >>)
Timeline:
Pre-application deadline (required): June 12, 2013*, 5 p.m. ET via the CDMRP eReceipt system: https://cdmrp.org/
Full application (invitation only): Sept. 18, 2013, 5 p.m. ET via grants.gov
Purpose: The ITEA supports the early systematic evaluation of innovative treatment interventions with the potential to impact the health and lives of veterans with GWI.

 

3) Clinical Trial Award
Amount of funding: maximum of $1.5M total direct costs plus indirects for up to 4 yrs
Multiple PI Option: Up to 3 Partnering PIs may be included in the application. The maximum allowable direct costs for EACH Partnering PI are $1M plus indirect costs.

4) Clinical Trial Development Award
Amount of funding: maximum of $100K total direct costs plus indirects for up to 1 yr
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility (with UTL, MCL, and NTL-Research appointments) and Clinician Educator (CE) faculty (with an PI waiver >>)
Timeline:
Pre-application deadline (required):

Full application: Sept. 18, 2013, 5 p.m. ET via grants.gov
Guidelines: http://cdmrp.army.mil/funding/gwirp.shtml
Purpose: The CTDA is intended to support planning activities necessary for the future conduct of a Phase II or Phase III clinical trial (or a trial of devices in U.S. Food and Drug Administration [FDA] classes I-III), since these activities usually represent a significant expenditure of time and effort. The CTDA is a 1-year grant intended to allow investigators time to undertake preparatory activities and have the study rationale for a future clinical trial scientifically reviewed. The CTDA is not intended for the collection of preliminary data or the conduct of pilot studies to support the rationale for a future clinical trial.
