Edward N. and Della L. Thome Memorial Foundation, Bank of America, N.A. Trustee, Awards Program in Age-Related Macular Degeneration Research
As steward of the Thome Memorial Foundation, Bank of America N.A., works with The Medical Foundation division’s Scientific Review Committees to select the most qualified candidates.
Successful research proposals will extend recent basic research findings regarding the underlying mechanisms of AMD. Examples of funding areas include, but are not limited to, genetically engineered animal models, the discovery and testing of small molecule therapies directed at promising targets including immune- or inflammation-related pathways associated with AMD, local drug delivery systems, and neuroprotective strategies. Basic research and clinical trials are outside the scope of this Program. However, clinical studies that involve the evaluation of new imaging modalities with no potential risks to human subjects are eligible.
