Taub Foundation Grants Program for MDS Research

The Taub Foundation Grants Program for Myelodysplastic Syndromes (MDS) Research was created to support high-impact, innovative translational research to understand the underlying causes of MDS and to advance its treatment and prevention. The Program specifically focuses on MDS research, exclusive of AML and MPN. Studies focusing on molecular genetics, epigenetics, splicing factors, stem cells, the microenvironment and novel therapeutic targets relevant to MDS are encouraged.

Three-year awards of $600,000 ($200,000 per year, inclusive of 10% indirect costs) will be made to independent investigators working in non-profit, non-governmental academic, medical, or research institutions within the United States. Collaborative efforts are encouraged.

The Program is a two-step proposal process. Applicants submit an Initial Proposal by the designated deadline. Selected applicants will be invited for Full Proposals, due in mid-August.  Funding begins on November 1, 2015.
