The ARO invites proposals for funding of small grants (up to $1000) to support activities either in the US or internationally that would enhance our mission and visibility as the premier hearing research organization in the world. Some specific activities that could be considered include:
- Sponsorship of an invited lecture for an ARO-member at a meeting, either national or international, particularly one at which ARO does not typically have a presence.
- Partial support of small ‘local’ research meetings that serve as a venue for members to meet to discuss focused topics; student participation may be targeted in these grants.
- Partial support of symposium at an international meeting, for presentations by ARO members, on a topic of interest to members of that society and attendees of the meeting.
Requirements: Applicants must be ARO members, and lectures/events must include a slide and/or other materials that acknowledge ARO support. The ARO will fund up to three grants per year.
Please send proposals to ARO headquarters at email@example.com
Cures Within Reach (CWR), a leading non-profit in repurposing research, recently launched two new Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for Meniere’s disease, with up to $100,000 for repurposing clinical trials and up to $50,000 for preclinical repurposing research. These RFPs will support research that repurposes approved drugs, devices, nutraceuticals and diagnostics to drive treatments to Meniere’s disease patients. CWR is especially interested in repurposed therapies to create “new” treatments to 1) reduce the symptoms, progression or incidence of; 2) restore function lost to; or 3) to reduce or eliminate severe side effects of currently used therapies for Meniere’s disease and related tinnitus and hearing loss. Initial proposal submissions are due by May 26, 2021. The top-scored proposals will be invited to submit full grants.
To submit a project or view the RFPs, register as a Researcher or Clinician on our CureAccelerator repurposing platform at https://app.cureaccelerator.org/registration. View any of our open RFPs at http://bit.ly/cwrrfps.
CWR is also looking for Meniere’s disease professionals and patients/caregivers to serve as grant reviewers for these opportunities. Please share this announcement with your Meniere’s network and help us spread the word!
CWR is a global nonprofit that leverages the speed, safety and cost-effectiveness of medical repurposing research, and we are building a research pipeline that could lead to clinical breakthroughs in Meniere’s disease. If you have a repurposing idea in Meniere’s disease that isn’t an exact fit for the RFPs, or if you have any eligibility questions, please contact Clare Thibodeaux, PhD at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss fit and/or submission options.

NIDCD would like to share two new funding opportunities related to HIV/AIDS:
The purpose of these Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA) are to stimulate HIV/AIDS research within the scientific mission areas of the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communications Disorders (NIDCD). Applications should address high priority HIV/AIDS research outlined by the NIH Office of AIDS Research (OAR) [https://www.oar.nih.gov/hiv-policy-and-research/research-priorities] in the areas of hearing, balance, taste, smell, voice, speech, and language.
