New Funding Opportunity: The ALS Association announces Milton Safenowitz Fellowship Program RFA

The ALS Association is proud to announce a grant funding opportunity through the Milton Safenowitz Postdoctoral Fellowship program.  This program provides research fellowship awards to promising new scientists entering the ALS field.  Fellows work with a senior mentor and receive extensive exposure to the ALS research community. Many fellows go on to establish their own laboratories to continue studying ALS and mentor more ALS researchers along the way.

Fellowships will award grants of up to $150,000 for 2 years.  We are especially interested in studies for new target validation, risk factors research, biomarkers discovery, assistive technology development and measurement of caregiver/family burden. Applicants who have been fellows for less than two years by the time the award starts are eligible to apply. There will be a 2-stage application process and LOI’s are due on August 14, 2020 (5 pm US ET).
