Update on COVID-19 Pandemic Crisis

We hope you and your loved ones are well given the difficult circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, we are still planning to move forward with grant opportunities that are currently open to applications. However, we expect that the process will likely take longer than originally expected, but please know that our team is working diligently to ensure that the process will be completed at the earliest possible date.  

We are aware that many institutions have restricted access to labs and other resources, which may in turn impact our active grantees’ ability to fulfill their current grant obligations. We are closely monitoring potential disruptions and will contact individual grantees on an as-needed basis. However, if you have specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact
