The Macula Society is accepting applications to support clinically relevant research into macular or retinal vascular diseases. Pilot projects with the potential to obtain additional external funding and projects coordinating the efforts of the general membership are preferred. Projects that already receive or are expected to receive $50,000 or more from other sources are not eligible for the Macula Society Research Grant Program. Members who received a research grant in the past three years are not eligible. The proposed research must have the potential of increasing the understanding of macular or retinal diseases. Grant proposals facilitating collaboration among the Macula Society members to study a particular disease are encouraged as well. Research receiving partial funding from sources additional to this MSRG award is also eligible, as the Macula Society believes that their support may encourage others to fund research.

Application Deadline: December 1, 2017 at 5:00pm EST. Award notifications will be made at 2018 Annual Meeting. Application Guidelines: http://www.maculasociety.org/Researchgrant.

The UNC Office of Corporate and Foundation Relations is available to provide assistance to UNC personnel pursuing privately funded opportunities. If you have any questions about this funding opportunity, please email cfr@unc.edu or phone 919.962.2867.
