The National Health Council has announced a new pathway for finding potential funding sources. From the website:
Do you have a promising biomedical research proposal that made its way through peer review but did not receive funding? Here is a new pathway for you that may lead to potential funding and help you bring your project to fruition.
Health Research Funding is designed to bring researchers with peer-reviewed, worthwhile, unfunded projects together with patient advocacy organizations and other funding sources. Working together, we hope to foster the funding of new research that will provide hope to millions of people in this country with chronic diseases and disabilities.
- We invite researchers with promising projects that have been scored but not funded by the NIH to submit their abstracts. By registering, you will be able to search for information about organizations that fund research and their requests for abstracts.
- Researchers with proposals that have been peer-reviewed but not funded by a NHC member patient advocacy organization may also register.
NHC Member Patient Advocacy Organizations (also known as voluntary health agencies or VHAs) that fund research projects will be able to search the database of research proposals and abstracts.
Other research organizations, including NHC member organizations and businesses that are not VHAs, will have the ability to register at a later date.
