The 2018 CURE Epilepsy Award priority areas reflect CURE’s continued focus on scientific advances that have the potential to truly transform the lives of those affected by epilepsy, with prevention and disease modification as critical goals.
In 2018, CURE will issue one request for proposals for the CURE Epilepsy Award.
Please refer to the LOI guidelines for an overview of CURE’s 2018 priority areas, application instructions and FAQs.
This award is available to both established and early career investigators*. Researchers who serve on CURE’s Scientific Advisory Council are ineligible to apply for or sponsor a grant for the duration of their term. International applicants are welcome. All materials must be submitted in English.
* Generally, early career investigators are university faculty at the assistant professor level (or hold an equivalent position in a non-university research organization). Established investigators are university faculty at the associate professor level or above. Post-doctoral fellows may not apply for this award.
Requests may be made for up to a total of $250,000 paid over 2 years. Funding requests may include salary support for the PI, technical staff and/or collaborators; supplies, animal costs, etc.; and travel to an epilepsy-related conference if the PI is presenting his/her CURE-funded research. Limited equipment purchases that are required to complete goals will be considered. Indirect costs are not supported.
