LOI due: August 21, 2013
The mission of the New Therapy – Commercialization Grants Program is to drive the development of new therapies for epilepsy, accelerating the advancement of research from the laboratory to the patient. Funding is provided to academic and commercial groups worldwide. The Program seeks to advance the development of new therapies including but not limited to medicines, biologics or devices. All proposals must demonstrate a clear path from the lab to the patient and are evaluated with consideration for their potential value to patients, likelihood of successful development including regulatory approval and the timeframe of development. Proposals for research originating from outside the United States are welcome.
$500,000 is available for funding for the Fall 2013 grant cycle. Although ETP anticipates awarding grants for the New Therapy – Commercialization program of $100,000 on average, they strongly encourage proposals ranging from $50,000 – $500,000. Multi-year proposals are also welcome, and will be considered.
Deadline: October 11, 2013 4:00pm
