The March of Dimes (MOD) is accepting Letters of Intent (LOIs) to support research projects relevant to the organization’s mission: to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality. This encompasses basic biological processes governing differentiation and development involving both human and animal model systems, genetics and genomics of these processes, clinical studies, reproductive health and environmental toxicology. Social and behavioral studies are encouraged concerning cognitive and behavioral risks that affect outcomes of pregnancy, the perinatal period, and subsequent child development. The latter may involve family units and those genes, toxicants and social determinants that adversely affect language or behavior. Eligible applicants must be qualified scientists with faculty appointments or the equivalent, at universities, hospitals and research institutions. If the applicant is already a recipient of a current MOD research grant or a Basil O’Connor Starter Scholar Research Award, include a summary of progress.

LOI Deadline: April 28, 2017. Invited full proposals will be due September 15, 2017 with award decisions made by April 2018; award start date is June 1, 2018 and end date is May 31, 2021.
