The Institute of Translational Health Sciences (ITHS) and the Washington National Primate Research Center (WaNPRC) are pleased to sponsor the Ignition Award for research focusing on the use of nonhuman primate models of human disease. The purpose of the award is to explore innovative areas of nonhuman primate research and generate preliminary data to serve as a basis for submission of new research grant applications and subsequent clinical studies.
The WaNPRC intends to give one or two awards for up to $75,000 each. These funds must be used for WaNPRC costs only, and supplies and salaries must be administered by the WaNPRC. Submit applications to the WaNPRC by Monday, Feb. 14. Awardees will be notified beginning Friday, April 1. Application material, eligibility criteria and additional details are available on the ITHS website. Center staff and scientists with questions are also welcome to e-mail PrimateITHS@wanprc.org for more details.
