Funding for pilot translational research using nonhuman primate models

The ITHS and the Washington National Primate Research Center (WaNPRC) are pleased to sponsor an Ignition Award, focusing on the use of nonhuman primate models of human disease. The purpose of this Ignition Award is to explore innovative areas of nonhuman primate (NHP) research and generate preliminary data to serve as a basis for submission of new research grant applications (e.g. R01-type grant to NIH or other funding agency) and/or subsequent clinical studies.

The WaNPRC intends to award one or two separate awards of up to $75,000 for one year. These funds must be used for Primate Center costs only, including animal costs, per diem, and procedures. Costs of supplies and salaries must be administered by the Primate Center.

Application deadline is 2-17-2012. For more information, go to
