Description: Join us for an information session on the Life Sciences Discovery Fund (LSDF) 2009 grant competitions. The funding opportunities and amounts include a project grant competition of up to $8 million in total awards, a program grant competition of up to $20 million in total awards and, new in 2009, two commercialization grant competitions of up to $750,000 per round.
LSDF 2009 project grants will support focused investigator-initiated research. Project proposals that emphasize disease prevention and/or cost-effective health care are of particular interest. Program awards will support the launch of new collaborative research initiatives that address major problems within a field of study and position organizations for future competitiveness and leadership.
The new Life Sciences Discovery Fund Commercialization Grants will encourage commercialization of science-moving technology from discovery to development for eventual delivery to the marketplace. LSDF regards commercialization as one of the primary pathways to impact health and the economy in Washington.
More Info: Requests for Proposals for all of the LSDF 2009 grant competitions will be released in early January, 2009.
