Egg Nutrition Center (ENC)

Deadline Date:

Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International senior research associates, faculty, doctoral fellows, and students for research related to nutrition and health. The purpose of this grant program is to support observational research or clinical trials that can help advance an understanding of the role of eggs and egg-related nutrients within healthy diet patterns.

The Egg Nutrition Center is interested in both observational cohorts or clinical interventions where appropriate and is especially interested in proposals that aim to investigate potential differences across ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age groups, or other relevant subgroups that address the following questions:

  1. How do eggs or components of eggs impact diet quality, neurocognitive health, neurocognitive development, or risk for allergy in the diet during complementary feeding and for young children up to 24 months of age? Questions that address outcomes for children >24 months and through adolescence are also of interest.
  2. How do eggs or components of eggs impact diet quality and neurocognitive health during aging?
  3. Are there unique attributes of the lipid components in eggs, specifically phospholipids, that impact health outcomes?

This request for proposals includes both Young Investigator and Principal Investigator awards.  

Principal Investigator Awards

American Egg Board’s Egg Nutrition Center research grant program is administered with funds provided by America’s egg farmers. The program is intended for faculty and/or senior research associates. 

Young Investigator Awards

American Egg Board’s Egg Nutrition Center is proud to support young scientists through our Young Investigator Research Award for Early Exploration. These awards are to assist students and post-doctoral fellows in producing preliminary research results that will support future studies or enhance the scope of current research projects beyond funding limits. Examples of the types of projects include proof-of-concept studies, pre-clinical data, secondary data analysis from clinical trials, and development of research methodology. Funding can be used for research supplies, and travel to present at a national meeting.
