MCPF supports cutting-edge SCI therapies enabling researchers to gather proof-of-concept data needed to pursue multimillion-dollar grants from larger financiers such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, and the National Science Foundation. We also place emphasis on collaborative efforts. Further, all scientific learning as a result of our funding must be broadly communicated to the rest of the scientific community.
Qualified scientists at capable institutions will be considered for grant application. MCPF has a biannual application cycle with grant deadlines on April 30 and October 31. Decisions will be made within 180 days of the grant submission deadline. (Many are done faster.)
