RESEARCH FUNDING

Last Updated on Thursday, October 28, 2010


The Vision Grant Award Program

According to the World Health Organization, preeclampsia is one of the least funded areas of research, especially when considered against Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs). The Preeclampsia Foundation’s Vision Grants fund medical research pertaining to the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.

The Preeclampsia Foundation has supported more than $500,000 in research since its founding in 2000. Through the generous support of our donors, corporate partnerships, and fundraising events such as Saving Grace and the The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia, we are routinely able to fund $25,000 medical research grants.

Research Funding Available

The 2014 Vision Grant application period is now CLOSED.

The Preeclampsia Foundation has supported over a half a million dollars worth of research since its founding in 2000. Through the generous support of our donors, corporate partnerships, and fundraising events such as Saving Grace and The Promise Walk for Preeclampsia, we are routinely able to fund $25,000 Vision Grants for preeclampsia research.

Vision Grants are intended to provide initial funding for innovative research focused on the pathophysiology, diagnosis or treatment of preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome and other hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. All novel, well-considered research topics will be evaluated, although projects that demonstrate potential to alter clinical management and improve patient outcomes will receive priority. Preference is given to junior investigators, although senior investigators with innovative, high-risk proposals will also be considered. International applications will be accepted, but they must be in English. Up to two medical research grants will be awarded, up to $25,000 each. More information is available in our press release.

Applications were due May 16, 2014, with award notification by August 22, 2014.
