Innovation in Regulatory Science Awards

BWF’s Innovation in Regulatory Science Awards provide up to $500,000 over five years to academic investigators who are addressing research questions that will lead to innovation in regulatory science, with ultimate translation of those results into improving the regulatory process. These awards are intended to provide support for academic researchers developing new methodologies or innovative approaches in regulatory science that will ultimately inform the regulatory decisions the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and others make. This would necessarily draw upon the talents of individuals trained in mathematics, computer science, applied physics, medicine, engineering, toxicology, epidemiology, biostatistics, and systems pharmacology, to name a few.

Awards for this program consist of a two-stage process. Preproposals will be accepted through Monday, November 18, 2013. From those preproposals, selected applicants will be invited to submit full applications by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on April 1, 2014.  BWF anticipates announcing at least five (5) full research grants in FY2014.

These awards are open to U.S. and Canadian citizens or permanent residents who have a faculty or adjunct faculty appointment at a North American degree-granting institution.  Awards are made to degree-granting institutions in the U.S. or Canada on behalf of the awardees.

See Terms of Grant for additional award guidelines.
