RESEARCH FUNDING


Peter Joseph Pappas Research Grant Program

August 6, 2020 - The Preeclampsia Foundation is seeking Letters of Intent for the Peter Joseph Pappas Research Grants funding program, designed to accelerate preeclampsia research.  The ultimate goal of this grant program is to drive research that will eliminate the delivery of pre-term babies as an intervention for severe preeclampsia, HELLP syndrome, and related hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Named for the infant son of preeclampsia survivor Lauren Pappas and her husband Clement, the program seeks to award multiple grants totaling up to $200,000 each year.

Letters of Intent are to be submitted electronically via e-mail to [email protected] no later than September 2, 2020.

The Vision Grant Award Program

The Preeclampsia Foundation is temporarily suspending its Vision Grant Program for the 2020 season, as a result of the research challenges posed by the COVID-19 outbreak.  Our preeclampsia community remains dedicated to catalyzing much-needed preeclampsia research, and we will keep you updated with new vision grant announcements as we navigate these difficult times.  Please take care of those you hold most dear, and thank you for making the work of the Preeclampsia Foundation possible.

The EMPOWER Program

EMPOWER (EMpowering Progress in Obstetric and Women's hEalth Research) was established to create partnerships between mentors and single sites or groups within low- and middle-income countries to improve clinical and health services research into the hypertensive disorders of pregnancy.

When available, funding is for a two-year research project. The immediate objective is the completion of a project designed by a local investigator and, when appropriate, the dissemination of the results of the study to change practice and improve care.

EMPOWER is a collaboration of the International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy, the Preeclampsia Foundation, PRE-EMPT/Global Pregnancy Collaboration, and supporting organization New Zealand Action on Pre-eclampsia.

Please note: The EMPOWER program is currently on hold and no applications are being accepted at this time.

The Preeclampsia Foundation, along with its partners International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy (ISSHP) and the PRE-EMPT/Global Pregnancy Collaboration (CoLab), announced the recipient of their EMPOWER Award for preeclampsia-related research at the opening ceremonies of the World Congress of ISSHP. Dr. Sarah Manyame, a physician-researcher with the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the University of Zimbabwe Parirenvatwa Group of Hospitals, was awarded $60,000 USD for her two-year project “Urine Biomarkers for Preeclampsia in High Risk Women.” Dr. James Roberts with the Magee-Womens Research Institute in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, will serve as Dr. Manyame’s mentor.
