Free Money Friday - Contraceptive Development Research Grant
The National Institute of Health will pay you to help improve or develop new birth control for women and men. Since 1994, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has been directed by federal law to establish three research centers 'for the purpose of improving methods of contraception' (42 USC 285g-5).
$1.3 Million dollars are available for groups that will support and facilitate multidisciplinary methods of creating contraception for men and women through the formation of a Contraceptive Research Development Center. The Funding Opportunity Announcement also allows the inclusion of translational studies to facilitate the pre-clinical transition and increase the likelihood of clinical success. It permits behavioral and social research projects to study birth control use and non-use of current products or products in development, as well.
Deadline: January 6, 2021
