Title Due Date Maximum Award Amount Description
DoD Multiple Sclerosis, Exploration-Hypothesis Development Award Varies

The Exploration - Hypothesis Development Research Award supports the initial exploration of innovative, high-risk, high-gain, and potentially groundbreaking concepts in the MS research field. The studies supported by this award mechanism are expected to lay the groundwork for future avenues of scientific investigation. The proposed research project should include a well-formulated, testable hypothesis based on strong scientific rationale and study design. The presentation of preliminary and/or published data is not required. The proposed research project must be innovative. Innovative research may examine a novel paradigm, challenge current paradigms, look at existing problems from novel perspectives, or exhibit other highly creative qualities. Research that is an incremental advance beyond ongoing research and published data is not considered innovative and is not consistent with the intent of this award mechanism. It is the responsibility of the Principal Investigator (PI) to clearly and explicitly articulate how the proposed research project is innovative in the field of MS research.
DoD Multiple Sclerosis, Investigator-Initiated Research Award Varies

The IIRA supports highly rigorous, high-impact research projects that have the potential to make an important contribution to MS research and/or patient care. Research projects may focus on any phase of research, excluding clinical trials. The rationale for a research idea may be derived from laboratory discovery, clinical trial results, population-based studies, a clinician’s firsthand knowledge of patients, or anecdotal data. Applications must include preliminary and/or published data that are relevant to MS and the proposed research project.
DoD Multiple Sclerosis, Clinical Trial Award Varies

The MSRP Clinical Trial Award supports the rapid implementation of clinical trials with the potential to have a significant impact on the treatment or management of multiple sclerosis. Clinical trials may be designed to evaluate promising new products, pharmacologic agents (drugs or biologics), devices, clinical guidance, and/or emerging approaches and technologies. Proposed projects may range from small proof-of-concept trials (e.g., pilot, first in human, or other early phase trials) to demonstrate the feasibility or inform the design of more advanced trials through large-scale trials to determine efficacy in relevant patient populations. The FY22 MSRP CTA offers two funding levels (Refer to Section II.D.5, Funding Restrictions). Only one funding level may be chosen per application and the choice of application category is at the discretion of the applicant. The requested budget at each funding level must be justified and appropriate to the scope of the clinical trial proposed. The following are generalized descriptions of the scope of research appropriate for each funding level:  Funding Level 1 (FL1) supports small-scale, early-phase, proof-of-principle clinical trials to demonstrate feasibility or inform the design of more advanced trials, or other clinical trials that are appropriate for this funding level. Preliminary data relevant to the proposed clinical trial are required.  Funding Level 2 (FL2) supports larger-scale clinical trials at phase 1 or phase 2 that seek to show preliminary evidence of safety or efficacy (benefit of clinical or paraclinical outcomes) in relevant patient populations. Strong justification should be provided, which could include but is not limited to intervention type, trial duration, sample size, outcome measures, assessment tools, and frequency of assessment. Preliminary data relevant to the proposed clinical trial are required.

Preventing the Introduction and Spread of Invasive through Strategic Landscape-Level Approaches $1,852,550.00

Using appropriations to the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (also referred to as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS/Service), in collaboration with other DOI bureaus, anticipates providing grants to support implementation of measures to prevent the introduction or spread of invasive species. Proposals are requested that advance strategic, ecologically-based, landscape-level prevention measures. Landscape-level approaches are those that bring together multiple geographies, sectors, and stakeholders to protect and conserve natural resources on a larger scale. Submitted projects should benefit invasive species prevention efforts on a national or regional context. Proposed activities should focus on either prohibiting the entry of potentially invasive species into the United States or stopping invasive species already in the United States from spreading into new watersheds or geographic areas. Submitted proposals should demonstrate: Benefits to Federal and/or Tribal lands or Insular areas (territories), although implementation efforts are not constrained to only on Federal lands and waters; An integrated management approach at the landscape-level that can benefit multiple DOI bureaus and geographic areas, particularly those areas that have been identified as high-quality, critical, core habitat, and/or having high risk of invasion; Implementation of effective, science-based tools or infrastructure that can be used for long-term invasive species prevention which may include leveraging existing knowledge and tools and/or building new capacities and capabilities; Partnership building and leveraging for collaborative conservation with other projects, programs and/or State, local, Tribal, and territorial partners; Cost-effectiveness and management efficiencies; and Ability to advance prevention priorities identified in the Aquatic Nuisance Species Task Force’s National Priorities List for Research on Aquatic Invasive Species (provide link) and/or DOI’s 2021-2025 Invasive Species Strategic Plan. Proposals that service underserved or historically disadvantaged communities are also encouraged; this will be considered as one of the grant review criteria listed under the Application Review Information section later in this document. The spread of invasive species may be stopped by strategic placement of exclusion barriers. These types of management actions can be perceived as containment, yet will be considered for prevention funding if the proposed project can meet the above objectives. Proposals submitted for this award should address how the proposed project supports the above objectives and DOI’s invasive species management mission to cost-effectively protect the Nation's economy, environment, public health, infrastructure, natural resources, and cultural heritage from the harmful impacts of invasive species for the benefit of current and future generations.
