Discovery:

Partnering Opportunity for Discovery Stage Research Projects
The objective of the Discovery Program is to support exploratory research leading to the discovery of novel stem cell technologies to improve patient care.

DISC 1: The Inception Awards
The most recent Inception Award deadline was Jan. 20, 2017. Applications will be accepted at 12 month intervals (so the next deadline will be in early 2018). The PDF file of the Inception Award on the Discovery webpage >> pertains to the Jan. 20th Inception Award.

DISC 2: The Quest Awards**
Amount of funding:
up to $700,000 direct costs per award to achieve a candidate that is a diagnostic, a medical device or a tool:
up to $1.4M per award to achieve a candidate that is a therapeutic
To incentivize rapid progress to translation, Quest award recipients who successfully complete a “Progression Event” within one year of the Quest Award end date will receive a “Progression Award” of $150,000 direct project costs. See the guidelines for details.
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility; the PI must commit at least 20% percent effort to working on the project
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.
