Funding Opportunity Purpose: This FOA is to encourage Research Project Grant (R01) applications for research into aspects of lymphatic vessel physiology, development and pathophysiology related to health and diseases of the digestive system, kidney, and urinary tract organs. However, studies with the major focus on immune mechanisms are not encouraged. Studies to understand the factors that control local lymphatic vessel functional anatomy and physiology and development during health or disease in these organs/systems, and the mechanisms by which alterations of lymphatic vessel function affect organ function, are of interest.

The Lipedema Foundation (LF) announces a call for Letters of Intent (LOI), soliciting high-impact and exploratory research from scientists and clinicians around the world. The LOI calls for ideas that have the potential to define, diagnose and develop treatments for lipedema. They welcome LOIs for Trainee and Postdoctoral fellowships, one year Proof-of-Concept Awards, and multi-year Collaborative Awards.
The deadline for LOI’s is May 15, 2017.

PCORI funds research into conditions that affect large numbers of people across a range of populations; conditions that place a heavy burden on individuals, families, specific populations, and society; and rare diseases, which are difficult to study. PCORI funds research through organizations and not individuals. Find out more at www.pcori.org/content/what-who-we-fund.Learn More >
