Grants to USA, Canada, and International early-career scientists at nonprofit or academic institutions for stem cell research projects. Funding is intended to encourage innovative and bold scientists with the potential to transform the field of stem cell research, and advance the understanding and use of stem cells in the development of treatments for human disease.

In addition to providing funding, NYSCF partners with investigators to advance and translate their research.

NYSCF is soliciting applications from early career investigators for awards to be used for exploring the basic biology and translational potential of stem cells. The goal of this initiative is to foster bold and innovative scientists with the potential to transform the field of stem cell research, and advance understanding and use of stem cells in the development of treatments for human disease.

Please note: this is a career development award, not a project-specific award, and funds may be used at the discretion of applicants to increase the impact of their research, subject to the terms of the award letter.

The award provides up to $1.5 million over 5 years.

Term of Contract:

The funding is provided over 5 years beginning on January 1st.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

-Be within 5 years of starting a faculty (professorship) or comparable position on June 1, 2020

-Do they report directly to funding agencies rather than a senior colleague?
-Do they supervise their own graduate students and/or postdocs?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, and the candidate has also met the other eligibility criteria, he/she may be eligible to apply. NYSCF Staff is available to provide additional information on eligibility.

-As long as an applicant's faculty appointment will begin by the funding start date, January 1 of the year following the award, the applicant is eligible to apply.
