Inflammatory Bowel Disease Research Grant
The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation (BMRP) created the Broad Medical Research Program (BMRP) for Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) Grants in 2001. The BMRP provides rapid funding to not-for-profit organizations worldwide for up to two years for basic or clinical IBD research projects that match our goals.
The BMRP provides initial funding for generating preliminary data rather than serving as the final granting source for completing a project. Utmost efforts should be made to generate sufficient preliminary data in the first year in order to compete successfully elsewhere for funding. Funding for a second year is contingent upon demonstrated maximal progress in year one, validation of the original premise and clear need for additional preliminary data rather than completion of a project.
Basic and clinical investigators, scientists not currently working in IBD and interdisciplinary teams are encouraged to apply.
Deadline: Open (letter of interest). There are no deadlines. Proposals are accepted and reviewed year round.
Areas of Interest
Research grants are available for innovative proposals that will lead to improvements in the prevention, diagnosis or therapy of Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis. We are also soliciting proposals in a special area of research:
- Differences in IBD incidence between developing and developed countries
Grants will be awarded to not-for-profit institutions worldwide, such as universities, hospitals and research institutes.
