NIH Acute to Chronic Pain Signatures Funding Opportunity

August 29, 2018

The Common Fund’s Acute to Chronic Pain Signatures program seeks to identify candidate biomarkers and combine them into biosignatures predictive of the susceptibility or resilience to the development of chronic pain.  Ultimately, the program aims to develop a database of pain-related biomarkers that can inform subsequent pain research.  These biomarkers will accelerate therapy development and guide pain prevention strategies.

Five opportunities for this program are now available: 

For those who are interested, letters of intent are due September 24, 2018 and applications are due October 24, 2018. An informational webinar will be held on September 6th, 2018 from 2-4 PM, EST.
