All Priorities Call 2024 opens on June 24th

Call for Proposals opening soon

EB Resnet is soon inviting research proposals for the ‘All-Priorities’ Research Call 2024. This years All Priorities Call is launched by EB Resnet member DEBRA Austria.

All Priorities Call 2024

There is a one-stage application process with an opening on Monday, June 24, 2024.

Through this AP Call 2024 funding scheme,  research proposals in any of EB Resnet’s priority areas are eligible for support.

Current Research Priorities

  • Improving understanding of EB biology to create new concepts for diagnosis and treatment.
  • Developing disease-modifying and curative therapies.
  • Preventing and curing severe disease consequences: chronic wounds, fibrosis, and cancer.
  • Improving clinical care and symptom relief through research.

We would particularly welcome proposals in the following areas:

  • Cutting-edge approaches addressing current hurdles in the creation and clinical development of reproducible stem cell therapies for EB (safety, potency, genetic stability, immunogenicity, tumorgenicity, cell reproducibility and scalability)
  • Sophisticated models of EB capable of realistically mimicking complex cell-to-cell interactions, including epithelial-immune cell crosstalk (organoids, complex skin-equivalents, organ-on-a-chip, bioprinting).
  • Predictive, high-throughput, data-driven bioinformatic approaches supported by robust analytics enabling interrogation of EB multimodal data (genetic, molecular, clinical) followed, where possible, by confirmatory, functional validation assays. These approaches should aim to identify possible points of therapeutic intervention based on specific biomarkers and relevant signaling pathways.
  • Breakthrough approaches tackling current problems in delivering repair molecules to internal mucosae of EB patients.

EB Resnet offers to fund individual research projects up to EUR 270,000 over three years.

The closing date for applications is September 09, 2024, at 15:00 GMT

The details of the AP Call 2024 are already available under this link.
