DHA announces Spinal Cord Injury Research Program Translational Research Award

Applications to the Fiscal Year 2021 (FY21) Spinal Cord Injury Research Program (SCIRP) are being solicited for the Defense Health Agency (DHA) J9, Research and Development Directorate, by the U.S. Army Medical Research Acquisition Activity (USAMRAA). The FY21 Defense Appropriations Act provides $40M to the SCIRP through the appropriation for peer-reviewed spinal cord research.

The pre-application submission deadline is May 24. Invited applicants will have until September 3 to submit an application.

The FY21 SCIRP challenges the scientific community to design research that will advance the development or translation of healthcare solutions for people living with SCI. Innovative research that fosters new directions or addresses neglected issues in the field of traumatic SCI is also supported, although studies focused exclusively on target identification are discouraged. The SCIRP encourages impactful research across the continuum of care from time-of-injury throughout life that is well reasoned and scientifically supported.

Applications from investigators within the military Services and applications involving multidisciplinary collaborations among academia, industry, the military Services, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), and other federal government agencies are highly encouraged.
