New funding opportunity in CIRM’s Discovery stage programs: the Foundation Awards 

Applications for CIRM’s new Discovery stage Foundation Awards (DISC 0) are due May 26th, 2022 by 2:00 PM PDT. 

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!
