AMGEN COMPETITIVE GRANT PROGRAM | Migraine

Competitive Grant Program in Migraine Research

An independently-reviewed competitive grant program supported by Amgen to fund innovative research advancing the medical knowledge of migraine

 

Amgen is delighted to announce the launch of the Competitive Grant Program in Migraine Research, which will provide an opportunity for junior investigators in the United States to compete for individual grants of US$25,000–50,000 for novel research proposals that seek to advance the medical knowledge of migraine.

The program is limited to proposals from junior investigators (interns, residents, headache medicine fellows, and healthcare professionals within 5 years of completion of training) based in the United States and requires a letter of recommendation from their department or laboratory head.

The deadline for applications is Wednesday, October 17th, 2018 (11:59 pm PT).

In Scope Proposals

The Competitive Grant Program in Migraine Research aims to support research intended to advance the medical knowledge of migraine in predefined areas of interest.

Specific predefined areas of research eligible for a Competitive Grant Program in Migraine Research award include:

  • Non-interventional clinical research with a focus on early diagnosis and treatment, epidemiology, and Patient Reported Outcomes (PRO)/Quality of Life (QoL) measures.
  • Biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis.
  • Preclinical research focused on mechanism of disease (non-calcitonin gene-related peptide [CGRP]- and non-pituitary adenylate cyclase-activating polypeptide [PACAP]-related).

Out of Scope Proposals

The following topics are considered out of scope and thus are not eligible for the Competitive Grant Program in Migraine Research:

  • All proposals not related to migraine research are out of scope.
  • Any research proposal involving the use of an interventional drug treatment for migraine.

Review Process  

An Independent Review Committee (IRC) composed of external, internationally-renowned experts in the field of headache medicine will be responsible for reviewing all eligible proposals and selecting final funded proposals.
