Grants to USA, Canada, and Israel academic institution faculty members for research related to anorexia nervosa. Funding is intended for research that has the potential to reveal the underlying biological factors of anorexia. Previous experience and qualifications of the applicant in conducting innovative research are important grant selection criteria.
Research must directly address the underlying biology of the human psychiatric disease anorexia nervosa, and the questions of how and why it develops and persists. The Foundation seeks to fund well-controlled, sufficiently powered studies asking important questions about the interface between behavior/cognition and neurobiology. They encourage approaches that incorporate neurobiology with an up-to-date understanding of the symptoms and dysfunction associated with anorexia nervosa psychopathology.
Both human and animal imaging studies that are directly relevant to the biology of anorexia nervosa are invited.
Research project criteria:
- Clear hypothesis based on sound precedents and supported by relevant literature
- Research methodology, data collection, and data analyses that are feasible and
appropriate to the proposal’s aims
- Objectives that are well thought out and technically feasible
- Appropriateness of grant duration, budget, and Dissemination Plan.
The Foundation wants to fund bold, imaginative, game-changing research, and is willing to take strategic risks. In some cases these studies may not match the scale or form of the grant offering, and they are willing to consider ideas for proposals with budgets and/or duration that exceed the limits of this grants program. Applications for such studies must have exceptionally high potential impact, importance, and relevance to anorexia nervosa, should be conducted by strong research teams, and must be pre-approved by KFF before submission.
In addition to hypothesis-driven research, KFF encourages proposals to develop large-scale scientific resources that will address a major unmet need in this research field. This may include studies that aim to combine some combination of prevention research, epidemiology, genetics, epigenetics, and the identification of biomarkers and behavioral correlates of early stage disease. If you have an idea for an exceptional opportunity project and would like to request approval to submit a full application, please contact the Foundation for an initial discussion.
Indirect costs may not exceed 10% of direct costs, unless specified otherwise in an award letter or the Grant Agreement. Indirect costs include: facilities costs, such as depreciation and use allowances, interest on debt associated with certain buildings, equipment and capital improvements, operation and maintenance expenses and library expenses; and administrative costs, such as general administration and general expenses, departmental administration, sponsored projects administration, and student administration and services.
