Grant Program Overview
2014 Request for Proposals Coming Soon
To advance its mission of reducing the occurrence, morbidity and mortality associated with PML, the PML Consortium sponsors research into PML and the John Cunningham Virus (JCV). The Consortium announces requests for proposals in the fall of each year. General areas of interest are as follows; more specific areas of interest may be included in individual requests for proposals.
- PML Pathogenesis (JCV virology and host resistance mechanisms)
- PML Risk Factors
- PML Diagnosis
- Discovery of novel drug targets as a treatment for PML
- Management of PML, such as treatment for IRIS
Investigators may apply through a two-step proposal process, which is described in the Requests for Proposals and listed below. Projects awarded funding will be supported for a period of two years. Successful programs that meet scientific milestones may be invited to request continued funding through an expedited review and decision process. Investigators outside of the JCV/PML field are also encouraged to apply. Preliminary data is not a requirement for consideration.
