The Foundation is accepting Letters of Intent (LOIs) to fund established investigators who are exploring areas of research that may not yet be eligible for an NIH (or similar) grant. Successful projects will lead to broader independent research, thus making investigators competitive for major awards from the NIH, other federal agencies, private foundations, or other sources. The Foundation aims to support projects that offer a high likelihood of improving the understanding of PF in the following areas:

  • Basic science
  • Translational research
  • Clinical medicine/research
  • Social science/quality of life

An eligible established investigator has demonstrated a clear record of successful independent research as defined by publication record and current or previous funding from a major organization. Individuals currently in training or with less than five years after completion of formal and subspecialty training are not eligible. There is no restriction on country of citizenship or country of residence. No budgetary or scientific overlap is permitted with another award. The application should represent an area that is unique and distinct from currently funded projects.

LOI Deadline: November 30, 2016 by 5:00 p.m. Invited full proposals will be due February 2017 with award notifications made by June 2017. Application Guidelines for the award: http://www.pulmonaryfibrosis.org/medical-community/pff-research-funds/the-albert-rose-established-investigator-award
