Kenneth Rainin Foundation
Grants to USA, Canada, and International investigators affiliated with nonprofit and for-profit research institutions, medical centers, and universities to support high-risk research on inflammatory bowel disease. Applicants are required to submit an LOI prior to submitting a full application. This program challenges investigators to push boundaries to further the goal of preventing and predicting inflammatory bowel disease.
Through the Innovator Awards, the Foundation invests in new and veteran IBD researchers and embraces novel, untested ideas. Funding interests span the spectrum of basic, translational, and clinical science. The Foundation believes substantive collaboration provides the best approach to accelerating the understanding of IBD and improving patient care.
Funding criteria include:
Basic Science: If the research proposal is rooted in basic science, applicants are encouraged to collaborate with investigators who can further the potential for translation of the ideas and findings.
Translational Science: If the research proposal is translational by nature, applicants are encouraged to identify industry and clinical partners to assist in propelling the research toward clinical study.
Clinical Science: If you are looking to submit a clinical research proposal, applicants are encouraged to collaborate with individuals who could facilitate potential clinical implementation.
