The PAD initiative wishes to thank everyone who has spent time and effort in preparing these proposals and looks forward to reading them.
The proposed projects will be assessed based on fit with the overall PAD mission and portfolio, and on quality of the science, novelty, state-of-the-art, feasibility and how the innovation and knowledge can bring the field forward. The principal investigator and the proposed team/collaborators will be assessed on their experience, record, and ability to deliver on the proposed project, which will be considered relative to age and career stage.
Based on the evaluation of the proposals, the outcome can be one of the following: a) an invitation to submit a full application to one of the three foundations; b) an invitation for an elaborative pitch to all three foundations; or c) a rejection letter informing the applicants that their proposal will not be considered for funding. Notification of outcome is expected by the end of June 2022, and pitch interviews will be held online between 16-18 August 2022.
Upon invitation to submit a full application to one of the three foundations, applicants will work directly with that specific foundation to develop a full application. A full application will meet the specifications of the granting organization and may include background, preliminary data, specific aims, clear go/no go decision gates, milestones, timeline of deliverables, and a full budget with justification line items. Being invited to submit a full application is not a guarantee that a grant will ultimately be awarded.
Grants originating from this Henipavirus RfP are expected to be awarded by December 2022
