American Stroke Association-Bugher Foundation Centers of Excellence In Stroke Collaborative Research for Regeneration, Resilience and Secondary Prevention
The Henrietta B. and Frederick H. Bugher Foundation has joined with the American Stroke Association (ASA, a division of the American Heart Association) to support a network of three Centers of Excellence in Stroke Collaborative Research for a period of four years.
The intent of this initiative is to support a collaboration of basic, clinical and population researchers from different specialties whose collective efforts will lead to new approaches, not only to improve the prevention of stroke, but to also expand upon the previous Bugher Stroke initiatives by inviting research on recovery after a stroke; including the areas of repair, regeneration, neuro-plasticity and rehabilitation.
Awards are limited to non-profit institutions in Canada, Mexico and the United States.
Each of the three centers will receive approximately $2.4 million.
The desired characteristics of these centers, the general requirements of the application and the review criteria are described in the Request for Applications (RFA) on our Web site.
The deadline for the Letter of Intent is April 1, 2013.
The application deadline is June 1, 2013.
