The California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) is pleased to announce a brand new funding opportunity within our Discovery stage programs, the DISC 0 Foundation Awards which will support rigorous studies addressing critical basic knowledge gaps in the biology of stem cells and regenerative medicine approaches, and to advance stem cell-based tools.
Projects funded through the Foundation Awards should propose impactful or innovative research that culminates in a discovery or technology that would:
- Advance our understanding of the biology of stem or progenitor cells that is relevant to human biology and disease; or
- Advance the application of genetic research that is relevant to human biology and disease and pertains to stem cells and regenerative medicine; or
- Advance the development or use of human stem cells as tools for biomedical innovation; or
- Lead to the greater applicability of regenerative medicine discoveries to communities representing the full spectrum of diversity.
Please visit our website to access the DISC 0 PA and read about program requirements. Applications are due May 26th, 2022 by 2:00 PM PDT.
We look forward to your applications!
