The Ann Theodore Foundation is launching the second cycle of a scientific program focused on funding sarcoidosis research in partnership with the Milken Institute Center for Strategic Philanthropy.
The Milken Institute is now accepting applications for two-year research projects that seek to understand the biology of sarcoidosis and increase our understanding of the genetic, molecular, and immunological aspects of the disease.
Projects led by individual researchers will be eligible for up to US$200,000 in funding for direct costs per year plus 15 percent in indirect costs, totaling $230,000 per year and $460,000 over two years. Interdisciplinary teams comprising a sarcoidosis expert and a researcher from a separate field relevant to the project will be eligible for up to $250,000 in funding for direct costs per year plus 15 percent in indirect costs, totaling $287,000 per year for a total of $575,000 over two years. Funded investigators will be able to apply for a third year of funding.
