The Deafness Research Foundation (DRF) awards grants once a year for the project period of July 1-June 30. Specifically, applications will be considered for research directed to investigation of all areas of the auditory and vestibular systems including anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, genetics, pharmacology and pathology; both fundamental and clinical research proposals are welcome. Continuation of funding from year to year requires re-application; the process is competitive and depends on significant progress as demonstrated in yearly progress reports. Third year applications will not be honored except in extraordinary circumstances (e.g., the recruitment of human subjects). Priority is given to new investigators in the field of hearing and balance and to projects that are likely to open new lines of inquiry. New and innovative projects developed by established scientists will also be considered; however, established investigators may only apply for one year of support.
ELIGIBILITY: Applicants should demonstrate experience and strong research training as well as sufficient institutional support (facilities, time, and mentorship) to carry out the proposed work. Applicants should hold the M.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree(s) as well as a faculty or post-doctoral appointment. Graduate students are not eligible for DRF grants.
