The has issued a Request for Proposals for its 2019 Eating Disorders Research Grants Program.
Through the program, grants of $750,000 over three years will be awarded for research that directly investigates the underlying biology of anorexia nervosa and the questions of how and why it develops and persists. Priority will be given to projects that bridge the gap between human and animal research, as well as collaborative applications that have the deep engagement of both neuroscientists and clinical researchers.
To be eligible, applicants must hold a faculty appointment at a nonprofit academic, medical, or research institution in the United States, Canada, or Israel. Researchers with a strong track record in another field who can bring a new approach to eating disorders research are encouraged.
The foundation will begin accepting applications on January 15, 2019.
