Dept of Defense - Bone Marrow Failure Research Program Preannouncement

The objective of the FY21 BMFRP is to fund scientifically meritorious research focused on BMF diseases. Investigator‐initiated research is encouraged in the areas of congenital or acquired BMF. Studies focused on BMF syndromes and their progression to other malignancies, such as leukemia, are acceptable. However, research primarily focused on myeloproliferative neoplasms, leukemia, or other malignancies is discouraged. Stem cell biology studies and translational projects, including bone marrow transplantation studies, should be clearly related to BMF diseases.

New York State Health Foundation Request for Proposals (RFP) Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Food, Healthy Lives; Consumer Empowerment; and Veterans' Health

Funding is available through a New York State Health Foundation (NYSHealth) Request for Proposals (RFP): Sponsoring Conference Participation in Support of Healthy Food, Healthy Lives; Consumer Empowerment; and Veterans’ Health. Many organizations across the State are doing smart, innovative work that is relevant to NYSHealth’s priority areas of Healthy Food, Healthy Lives and Empowering Health Care Consumers and its focus area on Veterans’ Health. These organizations should be elevating their work and informing key stakeholders at conferences and other convenings in New York and nationally. Yet, because of a lack of resources, they are often unable to do so.

Through this RFP, NYSHealth will sponsor community-based organizations, health departments, and other low-resource organizations to attend and present at local, State, and national conferences—both in person and online—related to these funding areas. Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.
