Research Proposals Wanted!
Post-Polio Health International has announced a Request for Proposals for post-poliomyelitis research. Deadline is 1 October 2015 (to be awarded in 2016).
About The Research Fund of PHI
The one million survivors of poliomyelitis in the United States, and the 12 million worldwide, know there are consequences of living and aging with a disability. They also know that funding for research into their problems is limited.
Post-Polio Health International established The Research Fund in 1995 dedicated to “seeking scientific information leading to eventual amelioration of the consequences of poliomyelitis and/or neuromuscular respiratory diseases”.
The Research Fund has $750,000 of uncommitted funds in the spring of 2015.
What research will PHI support?
The initial modest grants will help support researchers, scientists and clinicians worldwide to investigate the cause(s), treatment, and management of post-poliomyelitis and neuromuscular respiratory disease.
As it approves grants, PHI will foster new innovative research – both basic science and clinical – that will result in improved quality of life for people with disabilities, as well as support valid ongoing research.
