Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission Funds 36 New Projects in FY 2011
Date:5/25/2011

type="disc">
  • 13 Exploratory Research Grants (RFA-MD-11-02) - providing up to $100,000 of direct costs per year, for up to two years, to new stem cell researchers (young investigators and scientists from other fields), for new approaches, mechanisms or models that may differ from current thinking in the field and/or new hypotheses that have little or no preliminary data; and

    • 14 Post-Doctoral Fellowship Research Grants (RFA-MD-11-03) - providing up to $55,000 per year, for up to two years, including direct and indirect costs and fringe benefits, to post-doctoral fellows.  

    All MSCRF-funded research must be conducted in Maryland, and must involve human stem cells.

    For a complete list of the names of the Principal Investigators (PIs), their project titles and institutions, please visit the awardees section of the website (http://www.mscrf.org/content/awardees/2008.cfm).

    Each grant awarded by the Commission is contingent upon the PI obtaining all applicable ethical approvals to conduct the specified research, as well as a signed agreement with TEDCO that describes the scope of the project, requirements for sharing any cell line(s) developed with MSCRF funding and a commitment to publish results.

    "We are pleased to announce the MSCRF grant awards for FY 2011," said Margaret Conn Himelfarb, MPH, chair of the Commission. "These projects exemplify Maryland's investment in world-class, cutting-edge research. We are delighted that our collaboration with the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine will significantly augment State funding, establish new teams of expert investigators and expedite advances in regenerative medicine. The Commission is grateful to Governor O'Malley and our legislators for their visionary leadership and ongoing support of st
