The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Kidney Program invites applications for up to two Program Grant and up to two Pilot Grants for 2012. The purpose of this funding program is to provide resources for research in adult kidney disease with the goal of developing new therapeutic strategies. As such, a critical component is the translatability of the research project. This may take many forms, and does not require human subjects research, however thought should be given as to how funds will be best used to ultimately bring new therapies to the clinic. Preference will be given to projects focused on the adult kidney, for which current funding sources are not available and where clinical potential is high.

Program Overview: The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Cancer Program invites applications for pilot grants funding for 2011. The purpose of this funding program is to provide resources for innovative projects by investigators in the field of cancer stem cell biology, including basic, translational or clinical research. This funding is for groundbreaking, innovative, high- impact research projects that could fundamentally enhance biomedical research. Particularly welcomed are applications that promote the Program mission: to identify critical genes and pathways that sufficiently distinguish cancer from normal stem cells and hence serve as candidate targets for therapy.
