    PRF’s research focus is highly translational.  Topics must fall within the following research priorities:

    • Projects that are likely to lead to clinical treatment trials within 5 years. This includes the discovery and/or testing of candidate treatment compounds in cell-based or animal models of HGPS. Only proposals that test compounds in a progerin-producing animal or cell model will normally be considered. Analyses in non progerin-producing models are acceptable, but only as a comparison to progerin-producing models and with strong justification.
    • Development of gene- and cell-based therapies to treat Progeria
    • Assessment of natural disease history of disease that may be important to developing outcome measures in treatment trials (preclinical or clinical)

    The AACR-Day One Biopharmaceuticals Pediatric Cancer Research Fellowship represents a joint effort to encourage and support postdoctoral or clinical research fellows to conduct pediatric cancer research and to establish a successful career path in this field. The research proposed for funding must have direct applicability to pediatric cancer and may be basic, translational, or clinical in nature.  Each fellowship provides a two-year grant of $120,000 to support the salary and benefits of the fellow while working on a mentored pediatric cancer research project. A partial amount of funds may be designated for non-personnel expenses, such as research/laboratory supplies, equipment, publication charges for manuscripts that pertain directly to the funded project, and other research expenses. Grant funds cannot be used for indirect costs.

    The Dana Foundation is seeking US-based strategic partners to design and host a Center for Neuroscience & Society, one that is deeply committed to rigorous interdisciplinary training in neuroscience, that engages in research with an eye towards addressing practical issues raised by advancing neuroscience, and that grows a new generation of interdisciplinary experts who are empowered to embed neuroscience and its implications in a societal context.

    The Foundation is requesting proposals for 5-month planning grants designed to assist grantees in developing a detailed plan for a potential Dana Center for Neuroscience & Society. Grantees will receive up to $150,000 to create a vision for a center, organize and gather expertise, outline potential programs, and pilot-test a potential model for training and/or education. Proposals for planning grants are due July 6, 2022, with a start date as early as October 1, 2022.

    The planning grant is the first step in a two-step process. Recipients of planning grants will have the opportunity to submit a proposal to be considered as a candidate to host a Dana Center. Proposals for a Dana Center will be due in mid-2023. We anticipate a Dana Center will be announced in late 2023. Dana Centers will be funded at approximately $1M annually for 5 years.
