Team Grants

Funder: The Society for Pediatric Dermatology/The Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance

Due Date: December 1, 2017

Budget: $25,000

The SPD and its research arm, the Pediatric Dermatology Research Alliance (PeDRA), are committed to boosting pediatric research in spite of hurdles and inherent difficulties related to funding research involving both rare and common diseases in young children. To this end, the SPD and PeDRA are calling for proposals as part of a competitive award program.

    • Team Grants – up to $25,000 for each project
      A Team Grant is a proposal that is larger in scope and duration. Only collaborative/multisite projects qualify for Team Grants. Prior pilot data may be an asset. Projects must be completed within 1-2 years of grant receipt.

*The number of grants varies by cycle depending on available funds and quality of proposals.

First cycle grant recipients will be notified in June 2017 and recognized at the SPD’s Annual Meeting, which will be the World Congress of Pediatric Dermatology, scheduled for July 6-9 in Chicago. Second cycle grant recipients will be notified in February 2018 and officially recognized at the SPD’s 2018 Pre-AAD Meeting in San Diego (February 15). The application deadline for the first cycle 2017 grants is May 1, 2017.
