Applications Available for the 2014 Drug Discovery Initiative Awards

LabPhoto3Applications for the first round of the Children's Tumor Foundation's Drug Discovery Initiative (DDI) program are available by clicking here. These applications are due on April 21, 2014.

The DDIs, launched in 2006, provide a drug screening mechanism for researchers with a concept that may advance therapies for the manifestations of NF. DDI Awards invest relatively small amounts of funding into projects that could provide exponential return in follow-on funding from government and industry sources.

The DDI Award is already a cornerstone for NF researchers. A major strength is the simple application process and fast turnaround. DDIs call only for a three page research plan - easy to write and review. There are two application deadlines per year; on average, applicants are notified of the review outcome within six weeks of this deadline and the funds are given to the applicant immediately upon their signing of the CTF Patent Policy.
