Dana is inviting grant proposals for "first in man" studies involving a few patients with devastating brain disease for which there currently is no effective treatment. Funded researchers set up "controlled clinical studies" in a small number of patients with a specific brain disease, based on promising animal studies suggesting that a specific therapy either treated the condition or prevented it from getting worse. In these controlled clinical studies, the new therapy is tested in some of the patients while the other patients continue to receive currently available treatment. Through this process, clinical researchers determine whether the tested new therapy shows initial promise beyond currently available treatment. Grant studies can receive up to $300K over 3 years.

Lloyd's Register Foundation: Research Grants for Engineering-related Research Enhancing Safety – Pre-application  

Aim: to support engineering-related research, that makes a real difference in improving the safety of the critical infrastructure on which modern society relies. Priority areas include:

-Structural integrity and systems performance;

-Resilience engineering;

-Human and social factors;

-Emergent technologies

(See examples of funded projects in Case Studies #4, #5 here: http://www.lrfoundation.org.uk/funding/case-studies/).

Support provided to both fundamental, low-TRL (technology readiness level) research and more applied technology development. Duration: prefer longer-term research (provide examples of 4-5 years).  Please contact us (Robi 2152, robertg@trdf,technion.ac.il, Michal, 1745, michall@trdf.technion.ac.il) if considering to submit, to verify IP issues.
