FY20 DoD Funding Opportunities

The Spinal Cord Injury Research Program within the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (https://cdmrp.army.mil/scirp/default) has recently released funding opportunities.

 

JUST RELEASED! FY20 DoD Funding Opportunities

 

The Department of Defense (DoD) Spinal Cord Injury Research Program (SCIRP) recently released three funding opportunities for fiscal year 2020 (FY20). Submission is a two-step process requiring both pre-application (Deadline: May 21, 2020) and full application (Deadline: August 25, 2020). Independent investigators at all academic levels (or equivalent) may be named by the organization as the Principal Investigator (PI) on the application. International organizations are eligible to apply.

 Applications submitted to the FY20 SCIRP must address one or more of the following focus areas:

 Preserving and protecting spinal cord tissue at time of injury for improved neurologic outcomes

  • Identifying and validating biomarkers for diagnosis, prognosis, and for evaluation of treatment efficacies (Translational Research Award and Investigator-Initiated Research Award only)
  • Bowel, genitourinary, cardiopulmonary dysfunction, and neuropathic pain **Updated FY20**
  • Psychosocial issues relevant to people with SCI, their families, and/or their care partners
  • Rehabilitation and regeneration—maximizing the function of the residual neural circuitry, including harnessing neuroplasticity and recovery to improve function after SCI

SCIRP is offering the following award mechanisms for FY20:
