DEADLINE: Letters of Intent for Mental Health Research Funding
Dec 22 all-day

ITM partner Cures Within Reach’s CureAccelerator is now accepting letters of intent to secure up to $250,000 in funding for projects focused on creating new repurposed treatments, diagnostic tools, and technologies for adult, adolescent, and child mental health conditions.

Repurposing can often make a quick, affordable, and effective impact on patients, but these kinds of research proposals often lack traditional investment incentives. Our international philanthropists are interested in the speed, high success rate, and efficiency of repurposing research. Projects submitted to this RFP may be immediately funded by one or more current CureAccelerator funders, and will also be used to encourage a large group of international funders of mental health research to focus their attention on repurposing opportunities at their February meeting in Europe.

Preference will be given to repurposing research using readily available treatments and diagnostics. Clinical trials are preferred, but final preclinical research that can quickly lead to a clinical trial will be strongly considered.

DEADLINE: Silvio O. Conte Centers for Basic Neuroscience or Translational Mental Health Research Application

The National Institute of Mental Health will fund up to $1.75 million per year for applications for Silvio O. Conte Centers for Basic Neuroscience or Translational Mental Health Research. The institute seeks teams of researchers employing integrative, novel, and creative experimental approaches to address high-risk, high-impact questions in basic neuroscience or translational research with the primary objectives of: (a) advancing the state of the science in basic brain and behavior research  that will ultimately provide the foundation for understanding mental disorders; (b) supporting the integration and translation of basic and clinical neuroscience research on severe mental illnesses; and/or (c) advancing our understanding of the neurobehavioral mechanisms that begin in childhood and adolescence.
