Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission funds 36 new projects in FY 2011
Date:5/25/2011

COLUMBIA, Md. (May 25, 2011) The Maryland Stem Cell Research Commission (Commission) has completed its review of the 180 applications received in response to its three FY 2011 Requests for Applications (RFAs). The board of directors of the Maryland Technology Development Corporation (TEDCO) approved the Commission's recommendation to fund 36 new projects with the Maryland Stem Cell Research Fund's (MSCRF) $10.4 million FY 2011 budget.

As highlighted in its 2011 RFAs, the Commission gave preference to proposals that focus on advancing regenerative medicine, by selecting promising research that addresses osteoporosis, traumatic brain injuries, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, schizophrenia, ALS, autism, DNA damage, intestinal tissue generation, clinical drug screenings, and other debilitating and costly medical conditions. This funding cycle, the Commission also encouraged collaborations, resulting in 10 awardees (more than 25 percent) proposing to work with private biotech companies. In a groundbreaking new pilot program, two MSCRF-funded researchers will collaborate with scientists funded by the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine (CIRM). These two projects, studying red blood cell production and traumatic axonal injuries, will leverage Maryland's investment in stem cell research with more than $7 million in CIRM funding.

"Each year, Maryland's stem cell research program is a national leader in research and innovation while creating jobs and stimulating our State economy," said Governor Martin O'Malley. "I'd like to congratulate this year's awardees, and we look forward to their contributions to the field."

This year's MSCRF awards include:

  • 9 Investigator-Initiated Research Grants (RFA-MD-11-01) providing up to $200,000 of direct costs per year, for up to three years, to investigators with preliminary data to support their hypotheses;

  • 13 Exploratory Research Grants (RFA-MD-11-02) providin
