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 PD 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 Synergistic Idea Award 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: September 8, 2021 via eBrap
