Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission Issues 2012 Requests for Applications (RFAs)
Date:10/13/2011

COLUMBIA, Md., Oct. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission (Commission) released its 2012 Requests for Applications (RFAs) last week for funding through the Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund (MSCRF). This is the sixth round of funding from the MSCRF.

Established under the Maryland Stem Cell Research Act of 2006, the MSCRF is currently budgeted to commit up to $12.4 million, in aggregate, in FY 2012 to fund grants under all of its RFAs. The Commission last week released three new RFAs, seeking applications for basic, translational and clinical research involving human stem cells of all types, as defined in the Maryland Stem Cell Research Act. Investigators affiliated with Maryland-based organizations of all types are eligible to apply, including public and private for-profit and not-for-profit universities, colleges, research institutes, companies and medical centers.

"Our grant opportunities support Maryland researchers as they conduct cutting-edge research," said Dan Gincel, director of the MSCRF. "This year, we are calling on companies across the country to look into our programs and to consider joining Maryland's thriving biotechnology sector. We believe the scientific community here, combined with our stem cell funding, make Maryland a premier destination for biotech businesses."

RFA-MD-12-1 is soliciting applications for Investigator-Initiated Research Grants, which are designed for investigators with preliminary data supporting the grant application. Investor-Initiated Research Grants provide up to $200,000 of direct costs per year over a maximum of three years.

RFA-MD-12-2 is soliciting applications for Exploratory Research Grants, which are designed for investigators who are new to the stem cell field (young investigators and investigators from other fields), and for new hypotheses, approaches, mechanisms or models that may differ from current thinking in the stem cell field, with little or no pre
