Beyond Celiac, a nonprofit foundation working to advance research and accelerate the discovery of new treatments and potential cures for celiac disease, is supporting $450,000 in research funding through pilot and feasibility awards and established investigator awards.

 

Beyond Celiac Established Investigator Award 

 

This award is intended to support new and novel approaches to understanding celiac disease and is not for funding of ongoing projects. Approaches leading to the identification of potential therapeutics are encouraged. Applicants must be existing independent investigators (MDs, MD/PhDs or established PhDs), not trainees. For the 2019 granting cycle, all meritorious topics will be considered. However, the Beyond Celiac Scientific Advisory Council will prioritize applications directed towards T-cell epitope discovery to drive and inform immune tolerance strategies for treating celiac disease. Up to $100,000 per year (plus 8 percent indirect costs) for a maximum of three years may be requested for established clinical, translational or basic science investigators.

 

Beyond Celiac Pilot and Feasibility Award 

 

This award is to support projects that will develop and test new hypotheses and/or new methods in research areas relevant to celiac disease. It is intended to allow investigators to collect sufficient preliminary data to determine the best strategies and methods for approaching a major question, ultimately requiring assessment through larger scale research or a clinical trial. Approaches leading to the identification of potential therapeutics are encouraged. Up to $60,000 per year (plus 8 percent indirect costs) for a maximum of two years may be requested for established clinical, translational or basic science investigators with new and novel approaches to understanding celiac disease. Applicants must be existing independent investigators (MDs, MD/PhDs or established PhDs), not trainees. This grant is not for support of postdoctoral work.
