Starting today, SCN is launching the Impact ResearchProgram, a new initiative to fund stem cell research projects that pursuequestions with high potential for impact in the areas of clinical translation,commercialization or public policy.
Selection of the grants is based on the recommendations ofthe SCN Research Management Committee, and can be up to $75,000 per project forone year for Clinical Translation and Commercialization grants and $50,000 perproject for one year for Public Policy grants.
SCN plans to fund 20-30 of these grants over the next four years.
The next deadline for applications is August 14, 2009, whichwill be followed by a competition every three months. The program is open to both SCN members andthe broader Canadian scientific community.
