On the federal level...

National Institutes of Health

The National Institutes of Health, through its National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders, is accepting applications for research proposals designed to further our understanding of the mechanism, etiology and pathophysiology of immune mediated sensorineural hearing loss. Applications considered responsive include: ear organ-specific autoimmune sensorineural hearing loss, i.e. autoimmune inner ear disease (AIED); sudden sensorineural hearing loss attributable to AIED; and sensorineural hearing loss associated with systemic autoimmune disease. Proposals primarily involving human subjects/tissues will be given highest priority.


National Institutes of Health

The National Institutes of Health, through its National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, is accepting applications for research projects that focus on using chemical tools to either address scientific questions about microbial biological processes and host-pathogen interactions and/or determine the biological activity of host or pathogen proteins. Rather than focusing on identifying medicinal products, these projects should take a broader approach of analyzing biological targets that can serve as the basis for future chemical screens to identify drug candidates, as well as contribute to functional annotation of gene products.


On the private level...

The Mazda Foundation

The Mazda Foundation is committed to building a better tomorrow through support of meaningful programs that make a difference. Those programs should advance: education and literacy; environmental conservation; cross-cultural understanding; social welfare; and scientific research.
