Project 8p has a grant program that accepts unsolicited LOI’s here as well as a publicly posted general Request for Proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a general area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an expert review panel to make final grant decisions.
We are committed to sharing biospecimens, cell lines, animal models, and de-identified data.
When reviewing a proposal, the committee members are asked to consider the extent to which the proposed research meets the following criteria. The committee recognizes that some of these criteria will not apply to all research proposals.
Research focuses on issues and concerns that are known or believed to be considered important by people with chromosome 8p or related disorders.
Research is scientifically rigorous.
If applicable, new data is feasible to collect (for proposals that involve obtaining additional data not already collected via the Chromosome 8p Registry).
Research has the potential to definitively answer an important question.
The willingness of the investigator to publish and share their findings with the broader scientific community
For biospecimens only: The ability to successfully complete a material transfer agreement (MTA) with the Project 8p Foundation. Additionally, the type of samples requested and the quantity available may determine whether biospecimens are transferred.
