CIRM DISC1: Inception Awards
Purpose: The Inception Awards Program provides seed funding to support the exploration of transformational ideas that hold the potential to greatly impact the field of human stem cell research, but that require the generation of additional data to be competitive for larger funding opportunities through CIRM or other sources.
Amount of funding: up to $150,000 direct project costs (plus indirects) per award over the period of time it takes to test the hypothesis
Eligibility: faculty with PI eligibility; the PI must devote at least 10% to the project
1) the applicant must propose work with human stem, progenitor, or directly reprogrammed cells;
2) the applicant must be ready to initiate work on the funded project within 120 days of approval

TRAN 1: Stem cell-based therapeutic candidate
TRAN 2: Diagnostic (including medical imaging agents) based on stem cells, or critical for stem cell based therapy development or use
TRAN 3: Medical device (non-diagnostic) for a stem cell-based therapy or critical for stem cell based therapy development or use
TRAN 4: Novel tool that addresses a critical bottleneck to the discovery or development of stem cell-based therapy
Project outcomes, allowable activities, and what qualifies for each of the above product types are described in the corresponding Appendices: A, B, C, and D. The overall application and review process and general requirements for all product types are described in main document.
