The goal of CART is to encourage exploratory and developmental AD research projects within the United States by providing support for the early and conceptual plans of those projects that may not yet be supported by extensive preliminary data, but have the potential to substantially advance biomedical research.
Proposals should be distinct from those projects designed to increase knowledge in a well-established area unless it is intended to extend previous discoveries toward new directions or applications.
The CART Fund annually invites interested applicants from within the United States only to submit a letter of intent that includes sufficient detail to communicate the importance of your study as well as information on its feasibility.
Applications may encompass a project period of up to two years with a combined budget for direct costs up to $300,000. No indirect costs are allowed. Full-time faculty (or the equivalent status) at U.S.-based public and private institutions, such as universities, colleges, hospitals, and laboratories, are eligible. This is for NEW projects only. Applications will be deemed ineligible from for-profit and organizations outside the United States, as well as those already supported by regular or program grants.
Please contact Lynn Wong if you are interested in applying to this opportunity.
