The Klarman Family Foundation: 2017 Eating Disorders Research Grants Program

The Foundation is accepting applications to support research that directly investigates the underlying biology of anorexia nervosa, and the questions of how and why it develops and persists. Applications that bridge the gap between human and animal research, and collaborative applications with deep engagement of both neuroscientists and clinical researchers are strongly encouraged. Any clinical proposals must be grounded in the basic biology and neuroscience of anorexia nervosa. Award amount varies. The application deadline is March 14, 2017.

The Foundation is accepting applications to support research that directly investigates the underlying biology of anorexia nervosa, and the questions of how and why it develops and persists. Applications that bridge the gap between human and animal research, and collaborative applications with deep engagement of both neuroscientists and clinical researchers are strongly encouraged. Any clinical proposals must be grounded in the basic biology and neuroscience of anorexia nervosa. The Foundation will also consider human imaging studies that are directly relevant to the biology of anorexia nervosa. However, research into behavioral therapy, the medical complications of eating disorders, and clinical trials are outside the scope of this program. Eligible applicants must hold a faculty appointment. The Foundation is interested in attracting researchers with a strong track record in another field who can bring a new approach to eating disorders research. While this program is not specifically aimed at early career faculty, applicant track record will be evaluated according to career stage and experience. The Foundation has two award categories for this program:

  • 1-year pilot studies of up to $150,000, inclusive of up to 10% indirect costs
  • 1-3 year research projects of up to $250,000 per year, inclusive of up to 10% indirect costs

Application Deadline: March 14, 2017. Award announcements will be made by June 23, 2017 with funding beginning the first of July, August, September or October 2017. Application Guidelines for the award: http://klarmanfoundation.org/eating-disorders-research/.
