GUND-HARRINGTON SCHOLAR AWARD

The Gund-Harrington Scholar Award supports innovative research efforts that could prevent, treat or cure blindness. The goal of The Gund-Harrington National Initiative for Fighting Blindness (GHI) is to accelerate translation of research findings in the inherited retinal degenerative diseases (IRD) with the ultimate goal of developing new therapies to improve and/or restore vision. The initiative is collaboration between the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB) and the Harrington Discovery Institute.  The goal of developing new therapies will be achieved by providing award recipients with both research funding and guidance in drug development. Up to three awards will be made in 2019.

PROGRAM PROJECT AWARD

The Program Project Award (PPA) is designed to support collaborative, multi-disciplinary, research studies that engage investigators with different expertise and resources. The PPA is intended to enable studies that are too large or complex for a single investigator to undertake in a reasonable amount of time and to address gaps in our current knowledge or therapeutic options. The PPA must be unified around a single, well-articulated hypothesis and a clearly defined deliverable(s), relevant to the mission of FFB. The teams supported by a PPA must be tightly integrated and sharply focused, freely share data and creative ideas, and each be essential to the common goal. The PPA is not intended to support clinical research, unless tightly integrated with the projects, nor intended to support research cores.
