2012 CHCT opportunity for Harvard investigators to conduct translational research pertaining to cellular therapies

January 9, 2012

The prime mandate of the Center for Human Cell Therapy (CHCT) is to provide resources to investigators to facilitate bench-to-bedside development of novel cellular therapies for the treatment of human diseases (www.chct.org). CHCT is part of the Production Assistance in Cellular Therapies (PACT) program of the National Heart Lung and Blood Disease Institute (NHLBI). For more information on the PACT program please visit www.pactgroup.net.

Successful clinical cell therapies require the translation of laboratory-based techniques into standard operating procedures that follow

2012 HSCI call for proposals – translational program pilot grants

January 26, 2012

The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Translational Program invites applications for Pilot Grant funding for 2012. The purpose of this funding program is to provide resources for proof-of-concept, preclinical research studies ultimately aimed at therapeutic clinical evaluation in humans to treat pediatric and adult disease.  These pilot grants are intended to foster the discovery phase of translational/pre-clinical research, in which possible therapeutic cellular products and their mechanism of action are explored in relevant animal and/or in vitro model systems.

2012 HSCI call for proposals – Cardiovascular Program pilot grants

March 9, 2012

Application deadline:  Thursday, May 3, 2012

The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Cardiovascular Program invites applications for Pilot Grants for 2012. The purpose of this funding program is to provide resources for research in cardiovascular 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 to how funds will be best used to ultimately bring new therapies or

2012 HSCI call for proposals – P01 pilot grants in human cellular pluripotency

March 12, 2012

Application deadline:  Tuesday, May 1, 2012

The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) invites applications for Pilot Grant funding for 2012 under the NIH-funded P01 grant "Dissecting the establishment and regulation of human pluripotency" (PI Alexander Meissner, Harvard Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology). The purpose of this funding program is to provide resources for proof-of-concept studies. These pilot grants are intended to increase our understanding of the basic biology of human pluripotent cells and their utility for translational
