American Stroke Association-Bugher Foundation Centers of Excellence In
Stroke Collaborative Research for Regeneration, Resilience and Secondary Prevention
Request for Applications Announcement
The Henrietta B. and Frederick H. Bugher Foundation has joined with the American Stroke Association (ASA, a division of the American Heart Association) to support a network of three Centers of Excellence in Stroke Collaborative Research for a period of four years.
The intent of this initiative is to support a collaboration of basic, clinical and population researchers from different specialties whose collective efforts will lead to new approaches, not only to improve the prevention of stroke, but to also expand upon the previous Bugher Stroke initiatives by inviting research on recovery after a stroke; including the areas of repair, regeneration, neuro-plasticity and rehabilitation.
Within the scope of stroke research, scientific disciplines may range from basic to clinical to population with bridges to translational research. The application must contain at least two of these three disciplines. Areas of recovery, secondary prevention, nursing, psychology, psychiatry and neuropsychology are strongly encouraged.
A focus has again been placed on fellowship training and cross-center collaboration for this new initiative. Prospective applicants will be required to illustrate their capability to not only train fellows in stroke research, but also their commitment to collaborate with scientists outside their institution.
Awards are limited to non-profit institutions in Canada, Mexico and the United States, such as universities and colleges, public and voluntary hospitals, laboratories, research institutes, and other non-profit institutions that can demonstrate the ability to conduct projects and organize a center.
Prospective applicants are asked to submit a letter of intent for the ASA-Bugher Center of Excellence in Stroke Research.
The deadline for the Letter of Intent is April 1, 2013.
The application deadline is June 1, 2013.
