Maryland Stem Cell Commission Issues Requests for Applications
Date:10/1/2008

COLUMBIA, Md., Oct. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Per the Maryland Stem Cell Commission (Commission) meeting on Sept. 10, 2008, the Commission has issued today three official Requests for Applications (RFAs) for funding through the Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund under the Maryland Stem Cell Research Act. This is the third round of funding from the Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund, which has an operational budget of $19 million for FY 2009. However, it should be noted that the FY 2009 appropriation is subject to change pending upcoming Board of Public Works action in mid-October as a result of the State's revenue write down.

The grants to be awarded under these three RFAs will fund basic and translational research with human stem cells of all types, as defined in the Stem Cell Act. The goals of this program are to broaden and advance basic knowledge of human stem cell biology that will be relevant for eventual development of clinical applications, and to enable, support and accelerate such clinical applications for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human diseases and conditions.

The Commission is seeking the widest range of research topics that may contribute to achievement of these goals. A one-page Letter of Intent is required and must be submitted by Nov. 14, 2008. Applications for funding under these RFAs will be due Jan. 15, 2009.

RFA-MD-09-1 is soliciting applications for Investigator-Initiated Research Grants, which are designed for investigators with preliminary data supporting the grant application. Based on previous investigator response, the Commission has changed the terms of these Investigator-Initiated Research Grants to $300,000 of direct costs per year, and extended the duration of the grants for up to five years. Maryland-based organizations of all types are eligible for Investigator-Initiated Research Grants. Such organizations include public and private, for-profit and nonprofit: universities, colleges, research institutes, c
