Letters of intent for The Hartwell Foundation research awards due June 9

The Office of Research and Technology Management is accepting internal applications for The Hartwell Foundation’s Individual Biomedical Research Awards.

The internal deadline for letters of intent is June 9, the internal application is due July 11, and the full application is due to the sponsor Sept. 15.

Because Case Western Reserve University earned an at-large bid in The Hartwell Foundation’s Individual Biomedical Research Awards program, CWRU is eligible to nominate two faculty members for proposal submission this year. In 2011, both of CWRUs applicants were selected for awards. In 2012 and 2013, one of CWRU’s two applicants were selected.

The foundation funds 10 Hartwell Investigators annually for innovative, early-stage, cutting-edge biomedical research that has the potential to benefit children. These awards provide funding to individual researchers in the U.S. for three years, at $100,000 direct cost per year.
