CHDI’s Early Discovery Initiative supports proof-of-concept research projects that might help identify novel therapeutic targets or approaches for Huntington’s disease.
We especially encourage applications from junior investigators and laboratories not currently supported by CHDI. Proposal submissions must, however, be made in the name of the laboratory head (not in the name of the postdoctoral fellow who may actually conduct the research project).
Given the nature of the types of research projects we seek to fund through our Early Discovery Initiative and our desire to see approved research projects initiated and completed as quickly as possible, we have streamlined the submission process to allow for prompt funding decisions.
Our goal is to make a funding decision about research project proposals submitted to our Early Discovery Initiative within one month of our receipt of a completed research project proposal submission.
To be eligible for financial support under the Early Discovery Initiative, research projects must meet EACH of the following guidelines (all other research projects should be submitted through our Research Proposal Submission System):
You must submit your completed research project proposal (in Microsoft Word format only) through our EDI Proposal Submission System.
Your research project description should be 1,000 words or less and MUST address each of the following areas:
