Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission Announces New Program for Pre-Clinical and Clinical Research Grants
Date:1/25/2012

clinical trials will shorten the time patients must wait to benefit from emerging new stem cell therapies," said Margaret Conn Himelfarb, MPH, Chair of the Commission. "Our new RFA is intended to strategically and responsibly expedite this critical stage of scientific development. It marks a major milestone toward realizing the goal of the Maryland Stem Cell Research Act, and helps support the State's burgeoning biotech industry."

Because its proximity to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) makes Maryland an attractive location for life sciences companies, the Commission hopes this program will help attract new companies to the State. Maryland-based companies of all types are eligible to apply for RFA-MD-12-4. Companies conducting clinical research may be based elsewhere in the United States, but the work funded under this RFA must be conducted at a site in Maryland. Companies conducting pre-clinical research must be based in Maryland. No MSCRF funding will be used to support work conducted outside of Maryland.

Applicants for pre-clinical research grants may request up to $500,000 in direct costs, and applicants for clinical research grants are eligible to receive up to $750,000 in direct costs. Both grants will be budgeted over a period of up to three years. RFA-MD-12-4 is intended only for companies requesting funds for projects that have achievable milestones. Studies must comply with all FDA guidelines. In pre-clinical applications, preference will be given to late-stage pre-clinical research. Proposals that involve a clinical trial must have an Investigational New Drug Application (IND) or an Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) cleared by the FDA for the therapy or device under investigation, before the application is submitted to MSCRF for review.

Pre-clinical research grant awards require a 1:2 match (applicant:MSCRF), all or part of which may be an in-k
