REQUEST FOR APPLICATION: AB REES FAST TRACK GRANTS

The newly announced Ab Rees Fast Track Grant is aimed at promoting biomarker research on the liver and/or lung disease associated with Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (Alpha-1) that will generate federal funding to improve the clinical trial design in Alpha-1.  This program is designed to support a wide range of meritorious biomarker research related to Alpha-1, including basic laboratory investigators, epidemiology, clinical genetics, and imaging research.

GOALS OF THE AB REES FAST TRACK GRANTS AWARD PROGRAM

Applicants from around the world must utilize the Alpha-1 Foundation research resources of:

  • The Alpha-1 Research Registry, a database of diagnosed individuals and carriers available for participation in research studies and clinical trials.
  • The Alpha-1 Biomarkers Consortium (A1BC), an NHLBI research study currently enrolling 270 PiZZ participants for longitudinal data collection. All participants in the A1BC must agree to share data with the Alpha-1 Research Registry.

Specifically, this RFA is to generate ancillary data for the A1BC program that has just begun to enroll participants with a baseline visit to one of 9 United States clinical centers.  For more information about the A1BC, please visit About A1BC | A1BC (researchinalpha1.org)

Deadline and Where to Submit:

All grant applications must be received by October 31, 2022, at 11:59 PM ET to be considered for funding.

The Ab Rees Fast Track Grant applications must be submitted via email to Vanessa Valencia, Manager of Grants Administration at vvalencia@alpha1.org.  The Alpha-1 Foundation will not be using our Proposal Central platform for the Ab Rees Fast Track Grants.
