Michael J. Fox Foundation Launches Second Year of Rapid
Response Innovation Awards

Deadline: Rolling

Having funded $2 million in total awards to support twenty-seven high-risk, high-reward approaches to Parkinson's disease research in the first year of its Rapid Response Innovation Awards initi- ative, the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's Research ( http://www.michaeljfox.org/ ) has announced that it will commit a total of $2 million to a second round of funding in 2008.

RRIA is designed to ensure that researchers can pursue good ideas without delay. Under this program the foundation accepts pro- posals on a rolling basis with no deadline, makes funding deci- sions within six weeks of application, and speeds up to $75,000 to one-year basic, pre-clinical, or clinical research projects in any Parkinson's-relevant arena.

The program is designed to provide funding for strong ideas being tested for the first time. RRIA allows for the submission of applications at any time of year. There is no pre-proposal stage, and the standard application has been shortened to three pages.
Additionally, postdoctoral researchers are permitted to apply as principal investigators under this initiative, provided the head of their lab serves as Administrative PI to assist with the provision of institutional documents and sign the award contract.

Applications may be submitted by U.S. and non-U.S. entities, public and private nonprofit entities such as universities, colleges, hospitals, laboratories, units of state and local governments, and eligible agencies of the federal government and for-profit entities. Collaborative efforts are welcome.

See the foundation's Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
