Summary

The Department of the Army, through the US Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA), has posted a grant opportunity titled "DoD Lupus Research, Idea Award". This grant aims to support innovative and high-risk research that could lead to significant advancements in the understanding and treatment of lupus. The grant is open to unrestricted applicants and does not require cost sharing or matching funds. The DoD Lupus Research, Idea Award is specifically designed to fund studies that have the potential to uncover new avenues for investigation in the field of lupus. It encourages researchers to develop new hypotheses or innovative approaches to enhance the existing knowledge of lupus. The award is not intended to support incremental progress in ongoing research projects. The grant does not require the inclusion of preliminary data, but it encourages research that focuses on health areas and conditions that affect women uniquely or disproportionately. The research should analyze sex as a biological variable and relate the anticipated project findings to improvements in women's health outcomes. The total program funding for this grant is $1,500,000, and it is expected to result in five awards. The closing date for applications is August 6, 2024. For more information and assistance, interested applicants can contact the CDMRP Help Desk at help@eBRAP.org or by phone at 301-682-5507.

Description

The LRP IA supports innovative, high-risk/high-reward research that could ultimately lead to a critical discovery or major advancement relevant to lupus. This award mechanism supports studies that have the potential to reveal entirely new avenues for investigation. The application must describe how the new idea will enhance the existing knowledge of lupus or develop a hypothesis(es) or an innovative and novel course of investigation. The LRP IA is not intended to support an incremental progression of an already established research project. Research completed through an LRP IA may generate sufficient preliminary data to enable the Principal Investigator (PI) to prepare an application for future research. Inclusion of preliminary data is not required.The CDMRP encourages research on health areas and conditions that affect women uniquely, disproportionately, or differently from men, including studies analyzing sex as a biological variable. Such research should relate anticipated project findings to improvements in women's health outcomes and/or advancing knowledge for women's health.
